The desire for a cool pair of kicks isn’t gender exclusive, contrary to what male-dominated sneaker culture might lead you to believe. Yet female sneakerheads traditionally haven’t had as many options as men do. Nike is on a mission to change all that: Last year, the brand tapped the International Girl Crew—a group of designers and influencers that includes model Paloma Elsesser and WAH Nails founder Sharmadean Reid—to reenvision the company’s retro Cortez style.
When it’s not hawking egg-donor schemes or discounts on teeth whitening for alumni of Your College Here, Facebook ads are, according to a Bloomberg report, trying to pawn off fake luxury goods. Security experts who looked at over 1,000 of the site’s advertisements for designer goods found that a quarter were for fakes — including deals like $30 Ray-Bans and $239 Louis Vuitton bags. Instead, they linked to faux e-commerce sites in China.
It will soon be time to start saying good-bye to Lincoln Center and its street-style peacock-covered steps. The New York Post reports that February’s will be the last New York Fashion Week to be held at the space. The group NYC Parks Advocates had claimed that the event took over a local park to set up tents and equipment, and has now reached a settlement with the city.
Oh, and the post-makeover scene in Sabrina when she's wearing a Givenchy suit and William Holden doesn't recognize her...even though she LITERALLY LIVED WITH HIS FAMILY growing up. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x3aNIqtmdPg
I always think about the one scene in How to Steal a Million where Audrey Hepburn wears a non-Givenchy outfit (because she's in disguise as a cleaning woman) and Peter O'Toole quips, "Giving Givenchy the night off?" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kz5HXksVjpc
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".
