The Hunt is an online community that feeds your need to shop: it makes your social media photos shoppable, and the search for the perfect item much easier. Just upload an image and sit back as other members post links to stores that sell the pictured product. Finally, we can find those elusive pieces we've been searching for!

Apparently we're not the only ones who think it's a great idea. The Hunt investors include Ashton Kutcher, Lady Gaga's music producer RedOne, and now supermodel and businesswoman Tyra Banks, to name just a few. Tyra's investment in The Hunt marks the first one for Fierce Capital, LLC, the investment branch of her Tyra Banks Company.

With a Harvard Business School program under her belt and an estimated net worth of $90 million, Tyra has proven that she's much more than just a pretty face. She seems genuinely excited about the future of the Hunt and remarked in a press release: "What I love most about The Hunt is that women help other women find their perfect outfit H2T [head-to-toe]." Tyra, we're in agreement WUT [with-you-there].Denise Kitt
