Back in 2015, Guerlain’s president Laurent Boillot took a sample of Mon Guerlain, a fragrance which had yet to be released, to Cambodia to meet Angelina Jolie in the hopes of signing her as the face. “She trashed the bottle,” Guerlain’s in-house perfumer Thierry Wasser recalls—which at the time was a remake of a 1920’s bottle shaped like a bowtie—but she liked the scent. “I was saved,” he says. Yet Jolie didn’t just want to be a face, she wanted to a be a partner.
Getting your game face on takes on an entirely new meaning at Chanel’s Coco Game Center, a pop-up on the concourse level of Toronto’s Holt Renfrew on Bloor Street West that opened this past Thursday. Appearing in Japan first, where arcades remain a huge part of the culture, the game center is set up for the launch of Rouge Coco Lip Blush, a gel texture product that can be used for a sheer veil of colour on both lips and cheeks.
Last week, Tom Ford introduced a third pillar to his beauty world, the Extreme Collection. It’s the fruits of his first collaboration with British makeup artist Isamaya Ffrench, who was hired in 2016 as creative artist consultant. (There’s a lipstick named after her in the most recent Boys & Girls collection.) Ffrench’s artistry challenges typical notions of beauty and her work is fascinating to behold.
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".
