On an evening in late January surrounded by a gathering of friends and supporters, Mary Alice Haney, founder and designer of Los Angeles-based clothing brand Haney, stood in the foyer of a Beverly Hills mansion discussing the virtues of the City of Angels. She and about 300 others were attending the Highland Park-based Learning Lab Ventures’ $1,000-a-ticket winter gala.
Whether a nod to '80s rock, country western or rebellious punk, boots were a Grammys style statement, replacing the more predictable platform sandal or strappy heel. In many cases tonight, it was the boots that made the look. Consider Grammy nominee for best comedy album Sarah Silverman whose studded Jimmy Choo ankle boots gave her edgy look even more oomph. According to the actress/comedian’s stylist, Micah Shifman her Grammy look was created around the boots.
Sartorially speaking, few things are more synonymous with 90s music (or pop culture for that matter) than the color blocked, more-is-more layering, oversized proportions and primary color palette of Cross Colours. When Bruno Mars and Cardi B hit the Grammys stage this evening, the two (heavily nominated) stars were practically eclipsed by the rainbow-hued array of Cross Colours clothing worn by the backup dancers and singers and of course Mars and Cardi B themselves.
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".
