Social media fashion index: a star's comeback

Following a short absence, Converse's All Star sneakers are back where their name makes most sense, topping Famecount's fashion brand ranking this week.

The other labels that feature in the charts are all-stars in their own right: usual suspects Victoria's Secret, Zara, H&M, and Burberry are still engaging most fans. Southern Californian lifestyle brand Hollister - newly added by Famecount - is the only new entry in eighth place.

The top ten brands in terms of "fans today" under the category "fashion" according to www.famecount.com are:

01. Converse All Star (re-entry)
02. Victoria's Secret (-1)
03. Converse (re-entry)
04. Zara (-1)
05. Victoria's Secret Pink (-3)
06. H&M (-1)
07. Lacoste (-1)
08. Hollister (new)
09. Burberry (re-entry)
10. Forever21 (no change)
