Zara mogul Amancio Ortega, 79, was briefly the richest man in the world, surpassing the long-standing title-holder Bill Gates — but only for a few hours while the markets fluctuated. Ortega, who has a 59.3 percent stake in Zara, momentarily eclipsed Gates with a $79.9 billion fortune before falling behind again at only $78.2 billion. [Fortune]

Kendall and Kylie Jenner may have moved on from their Pac Sun collaborations to start their own line, but they haven't come away unscathed. The sisters as well as the teen retailer are being sued for trademark infringement by Island Company, a Florida-based brand that claims a tee reading "Run away; fall in love; never return," from the Jenner collab, is a rip-off of their motto, "quit your job; buy a ticket; get a tan; fall in love; never return." Island Company is asking for the sisters and Pac Sun to pay damages and attorney's fees and to cease production of the offending products. [Fashionista]
