How many times a day do you pick up your phone or open a new web browser to ask Google a question? 

From the serious to the not-so-serious enquiries (where can I buy cheap wine? What's the tastiest mince pie?), the search engine processes a mind-boggling 40,000 questions a second, which adds up to over 3.5 billion searches per day and 1.2 trillion searches globally every year. Phew.

Now the company have released their list of the world's top ten most-asked fashion and beauty related questions from 2015, some of which we're on board with (how to walk in high heels?) and some of which are slightly more dubious (how to use beard balm?)

We were also fascinated by the list of trending Oscar dresses, topped by Lupita Nyong'o's fabulous Calvin Klein gown handmade with 6,000 pearls, natch.
