Leather shorts have been around at least as long as lederhosen. More recently they began appearing on runways circa 2008. Gwyneth Paltrow was spotted wearing them in late 2009, and they showed up in force on Spring 2010 runways, finally entering the fast fashion worlds of Forever21 and H&M soon after. And you know when the WSJ declares a fashion trend, as it did in April, said trend has been firmly established — perhaps even jumped the shark. But leather shorts don’t seem to be going away.
I grew up in the 80s. I also worked at Wired.com for a decade. So maybe it’s not surprising that I’m head over heels for Hayden-Harnett’s Tron collection. According to the HH website, Walt Disney invited invited HH to create a capsule collection of bags and accessories in conjunction with the new Tron: Legacy movie starring everyone’s favorite dude, Jeff Bridges, Olivia Wilde of House fame. Disney will release the film, which is a sequel to the original 1982 movie Tron, on December 17.
Let’s first acknowledge that Gaddafi is a ruthless dictator who has suppressed and slaughtered his own people for decades. Now, for insight into this megalomaniac’s buffoonery, check out the “fashionable” dictator in this unaired NBC news comedy pilot voiced by Today’s Nancy Foreman. Some highlights are the “hot new tunnel neck, zipped up the side” (very Rick Owens! ), the green draped cape (we saw a lot of those for fall at New York Fashion Week), and the pink shrug.
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".
