Kanye West

Facebook hasn't yet confirmed whether it's the real Mark Zuckerberg, although it's a verified Fancy account, and the high-end Pinterest competitor has been generating a lot of buzz lately. The New York-based startup recently launched its own commerce platform, which is already seeing an average of roughly $50,000 in spending per week. It boasts nearly 1 million users, Kanye West's seal of approval, and a $100 million valuation thanks to the backing of PPR and angel investors such as Jack Dorsey, who sits on the company's board along with Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes.

Retailers finally unveiled the physical version of "Watch The Throne," the collaborative album between Jay-Z and Kanye West, on Aug. 12, but the rappers did them one better: they constructed a pop-up store on Mulberry Street in New York City that held the tricked-out Maybach that appears in the duo's music video for "Otis."

Sources say that artist Kanye West has taken up residence in Paris and is taking the first steps towards the imminent launch of his high-end clothing line. "While there is no fixed date in the pipeline for the first showing of Kanye's new range, it's thought that a presentation-style format is slated for September," the Telegraph reports.
