The history of haute couture is having a moment. Ever since the huge popularity of the ‘Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty’ exhibition in 2011, the Museum of Modern Art’s beautifully curated fashion-orientated exhibitions have attracted a new clientele to museums, highlighting the prominence of fashion in popular culture today. Last week we saw Les Musées des Arts Décoratifs in Paris open the latest instalment: ‘Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams’.
Before attending Murray Edwards Garden Party, my first event of my first ever May Week, I had been told by many people that it had been the absolute highlight of their 2016 May Week. Therefore, I was excited and also slightly intrigued to discover how a small garden party, taking place in the quiet and idyllic grounds of Murray Edwards college, could be given so much anticipation in a week bursting with ostentatious balls complete with overflowing and conspicuous budgets.
The Côte d’Azur has long been a place of elegant and sophisticated summer dressing and this year off-duty Cannes style truly embraced that Riviera chic, with the style of celebrities adopting more of a polished, classy and Eurocentric identity.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
