According to Microsoft's search engine, Bing, Michael Kors was the most searched for fashion designer of 2014.

The designer placed second on last year's chart — he was beat by Victoria Beckham. She did not make the list at all this year, according to WWD.

Louis Vuitton fell in second place for 2014, followed by Ralph Lauren. Vuitton was in 10th place for 2013 and Lauren held the same spot. Tory Burch was listed at no. 4 on the 2014 ranking, after being in seventh place last year, and Gucci took fifth on the listing.

Kate Spade was named no. 6 for 2014, followed by Burberry for seventh, Chanel eighth, Versace at ninth and BCBG Max Azria snagged the 10th spot.

Last year's list of most searched designers featured Spade at no. 8 and Chanel at four. Versace and BCBG did not make the list for 2013.

Kors launched a cutting-edge line of tech accessories about a month ago, including chargers, phone charging cases and ear buds, designed to resemble women's cosmetics.

"The men and women who I design for are constantly on the go," Kors told WWD when the line launched.

"They live full lives, and they need their phones to work from morning until night, breakfast to boardroom, on business trips and vacation." 

These new products, styled after lipstick and compact cases, will be priced from $58 to $140. The collection is available in stores and online, with new models expected to be released early next year.

"Whether you're a technophile or technophobe, the beauty of this technology is that it is so easy. In this fast world, which is only getting faster, you never want your phone to die," Kors previously told WWD.

In October, the designer participated in the Watch Hunger Stop iniative to help the United Nations' World Food Programme raise funds for its school meals program.
