Kickstarter's Strangest Successes: We're fascinated by Kickstarter's potential to launch fashion brands, and even more fascinated by some of the crazy stuff that gets $$$--here are the 10 wackiest.

Olympic Mania: We like to think we're not the only ones whose lives are now fully consumed by watching Olympic events and medal counts (right guys?!). To fuel our addictions, we dreamed up some potential fashion Olympic events and outlined the evolution of glitz, glam and flash in gymnastics. And we, like many others, are swooning over Ryan Lochte, despite that little grill misstep.

Models Get Better With Age: If recent ad campaigns are any indicator, the over-65 crowd will be dominating the fashion scene before we know it. We chatted with modeling agencies and did some demographic research to see why 60 just might be the new 16.

The Vanity Fair Best Dressed List's Hits And Misses: Each year, we wait with bated breath to see which 50 men and women across the globe are named to VF's International Best Dressed list. This year's list features the usual suspects as well as some rather *ahem* unexpected names. We felt that there were some stars who really should have made the list--see if you agree with our choices.

The Man Repeller Signs With Major Talent Agency: The fashion blogger take-over continues! Leandra Medine of The Man Repeller has signed with CAA - the same talent agency that reps Kanye West and Nicole Kidman. What could this mean for the future of her blog?
