This week, the number crunchers at Polyvore provided The Feast with an exclusive peek into the brands that are trending on the mega-site over the past week. With 6.5 million unique visitors every month, Polyvore rightly holds the title of "the Web's largest community of tastemakers," making any analytics around labels rather of note for anyone interested in how the "tastemakers" are viewing the world's brands at any given moment.
This week's biggest-climbing brand was Ralph Lauren, which — in addition to debuting a gorgeous new New York storefront — is enjoying a media buzz run thanks to Michelle Obama's stunning floor-length selection at a London state dinner last week.
In other celeb style news, Elie Saab is continuing it's moment in the Polyvore spotlight, no-doubt thanks in part to country star Taylor Swift wearing a label design to the recent Billboard Music Awards.
Always-steady H&M is also a top trender, and our sources there identify a pair of tanks (one white and cropped, the other bold and striped) as current favorites among site users. On a related fast fashion note, Wet Seal was also in the mix this week, with top products ranging from strappy faux leather heels to a layered floral mini skirt.
The Polyvore Index is a weekly glimpse into what brands and designers are trending on the Web's largest community of tastemakers, as established by levels of engagement from adding to sets to liking and saving.
