Billy Porter and Cardi B have dominated Google’s list of red carpet searches for 2019.

Analysts at the search engine have released their annual Year in Search report, with the Pose star nabbing the top spot.

In recent years, the actor has built up a reputation for his extravagant ensembles, with notable outfits including the Christian Siriano tuxedo ballgown he wore to the Academy Awards in February and the Cleopatra-inspired sequinned jumpsuit with 10-foot wings he debuted at the Met Gala in May.

Cardi landed in second place, with the Bodak Yellow rapper having made some serious sartorial choices in the past 12 months, such as the vintage Mugler ensemble she donned for the Grammy Awards and the oxblood red gown by Thom Browne that she chose for the Met Gala.

Boundary-pushing fashionista Lady Gaga took the third sport, which is perhaps unsurprising considering the interest she garnered online when she sported four different Brandon Maxwell outfits to the Met Gala, as well as a stunning strapless black Alexander McQueen ballgown to the Oscars, where she was nominated for her performance in A Star Is Born.

Interestingly, Gaga was followed on the list by “Amy Schumer husband”. The comedy star’s husband Chris Fischer attended several red carpet events with her this year, while Jenny McCarthy took fifth place and K-pop sensation BTS ranked sixth. Caitlyn Jenner, Richard Madden, Brie Larson, and “Brienne of Tarth” – also known as Game of Thrones actress Gwendoline Christie – rounded out the top 10.

Among the Fashion Style searches for 2019 were topics such as “camp style”, “Egirl style”, “Eboy style”, and “Steampunk style”, while biker shorts, white jeans, and leather trousers were also top search terms.

Caitlyn Jenner suffers obstacle with planned skincare line

Caitlyn Jenner’s plans to bring out a skincare line have hit a snag due to a trademark issue.

The retired Olympian-turned-reality TV star was planning to follow in the footsteps of her daughter Kylie Jenner and former stepdaughter Kim Kardashian by bringing out a namesake beauty line.

Caitlyn, 69, filed a trademark application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office back in October (18) for “Jenner Skincare”, “Skincare By Jenner”, “Skincare by Caitlyn Jenner”, and “Caitlyn Jenner Skincare” to be used on beauty products such as skin moisturisers, skin lotions, skin masks, facial balms, skin peels and even cosmetics.

Officials at the Trademark Office have responded by informing the former I Am Cait star that her registration for “Jenner Skincare” and “Skincare By Jenner” were far too similar to trademarks already registered by Kylie, her sister Kendall Jenner and their mother, Caitlyn’s ex-wife Kris Jenner.

According to The Blast, the officials stated in a letter to Caitlyn that those names could confuse customers into believing Kylie, Kendall or Kris are associated with her line, particularly as a lot of their registered trademarks are connected to the beauty industry, such as the 21-year-old’s “Kylie Cosmetics by Kylie Jenner”.

However, they have no objection to Caitlyn using the “Caitlyn Jenner Skincare” and “Skincare By Caitlyn Jenner” trademarks because it makes it clear to consumers which family member is involved with the products.

If she does continue with her skincare line, Caitlyn will face stiff competition from her own daughter. Kylie, who is a billionaire thanks to her Kylie Cosmetics brand, applied to register the trademark “Kylie Skin” in September, with plans to use the name for a line which will offer many of the same products and services as her father.
