Hedi Slimane, one of fashion's most influential and controversial designers, has been named creative, artistic, and image director of Céline. He will also launch men's, couture, and fragrance for the brand. Slimane is the former creative director of Yves Saint Laurent (he re-dubbed it, simply, Saint Laurent), where his youthful collections were often met with derision from critics but were a hit with shoppers.
Like so many women, Anna Sale found herself reexamining her past work experiences as the #MeToo movement outed one serial abuser after the next. She’d worked for John Hockenberry, the host of the NPR show The Takeaway, who had been accused of sexual harassment and bullying in a December report in The Cut. The culture of bullying and intimidation described in the report served as a trigger.
A lot of necessary and thoughtful consideration is being paid to how awards shows, the red carpet, and fashion will be covered post-Weinstein: Is an all-black red carpet protest a good thing? Should best (and worst) dressed lists persist? (The Cut says no.) It wouldn't make sense to think about Hollywood's most celebratory events in that frothy and self-congratulatory light they are so often bathed in.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
