Wearing a J Crew skirt saw searches for that brand grow by over 100 per cent.

Timothée Chalamet’s experimental outfit choices assured him of second place on the list, with the sequinned hoodie that he wore to the London premiere of The King seeing searches for men’s hoodies rising by 192 per cent. When Timothée wore a Haider Ackermann suit, searches for that brand grew a whopping 806 per cent.

Zendaya rounds out the top three, with her Met Gala red-carpet outfit – which saw her dressed in a light-up Cinderella gown by Tommy Hilfiger – causing a 54 per cent increase in searches for the brand. A similar thing happened when she wore a Vera Wang gown to the Emmy Awards, which saw a 33 per cent increase in searches.
