When I ask Alexia Elkaim to tell me her favorite body part to show off, the buxom beauty hardly hesitates. “My butt!” she enthusiastically replies. I’m not surprised. After all, her newly minted line of curve-enhancing denim, Miaou (pronounced just like a feline’s frisky call), was designed with the modern bombshell in mind—the fashion-conscious girl with hips, breasts, and a booty that simply won’t quit. “I design for my body type, which I think falls somewhere in the middle.
Curled up on a velvet couch, her famous curves wrapped in a silk Thomas Wylde robe, Power actress and businesswoman La La Anthony is a more subtle version of the bombshell that had spent much of the humid June morning guiding ELLE.com's cameras through her new Tribeca home, waxing prophetic on the tenets of "bad bitchdom." A bad bitch, for Anthony, is hardly the ferocious she-devil that the media likes to paint opinionated and ambitious women as, but an empowered, shrewd strategist.
It was a cut that shaped a generation. High-waisted, hip-bone-grazing, and cut-to-there, the bikinis and one-pieces of the ’80s were unapologetically skimpy, and spoke to the extreme nature of the era’s fashion. Now, a host of style influencers too young to try the trend the first time around are fueling its inevitable resurgence.
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".
