For February, ads from Wal-Mart Stores Inc., Home Depot Inc. and Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc. took the top spots in advertising effectiveness in a month that saw an overall decline in the number of campaigns promoted by major U.S. retailers.
Researchers at ABX who compile the monthly Advertising Benchmark Index report noted that the top U.S. retailers tracked ran 432 new ads during the month — down 228 ads from January, which turned out to be a more promotional month overall as retail brands worked to clear inventory.
The first retrospective of Dior in the U.S. has landed at the Denver Art Museum — and though the exhibition is a continuation of the 70th-anniversary display that bowed in Paris in 2017, “Christian Dior, Couturier du Rêve,” the DAM show offers an entirely new look at the legacy of the house, and its relationship to the world, writes @leighen .

Norwegian musician Anna of the North (a.k.a. Anna Lotterud ) has had a rapid rise in the U.S., thanks to her song “Lovers” which was included in this summer’s Netflix hit “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before.” Next up, a show at Terminal 5. “I’ve never actually done promo or anything in the U.S. before so it’ll be interesting to see,” she tells @leighen . “Because of the Internet I’ve always had American listeners but never been here [playing music].” 📸: @jilliansollazzo #wwdeye
