Google has released its always-interesting list of the celebrities, terms, and people we collectively searched the most during the entire year, and I’m here to tell you, there are some shockers. The most interesting one is the name that took the top spot in the fashion designer category, mostly because, arguably, the person isn’t exactly a designer. Nope, the honor went to 19-year-old Bethany Mota, YouTube star, for her collection with Aeropostale.
This is her modeling a velvet dress from the range (which also has a bedding component). She has a cute style that’s relatable for everyone from middle-school age on up and watching her videos feels like you’re talking to a best friend, so I get the appeal. Aeropostale harnessed that popularity and intimacy; the product description for this dress reads “You guys know me, so I’m sure you already know I’m freaking out about my Solid Velvet Dress! I’m so pumped about its shimmery fabric and sassy scoop back.”
Taking the number two and three spots were Kate Spade and Oscar de la Renta. Valentino, Alexander Wang, and Rachel Roy also made the list and, interestingly, Beyoncé’s mom, Tina Knowles, had the number 10 spot.
The most queried fashion question was how to wear a scarf, followed by what to wear to weddings, interviews, and a first date. Ankle boots, leggings, and beanies also earned spots as pieces that people want styling suggestions for.
