Nasty Gal founder Sophia Amoruso must be dancing in her kinky skinny jeans right about now. After scoring $9 million in funding from venture capital firm Index Ventures earlier this year, the "unapologetically sexy" e-tailer has just scored a $40 million Series B round from the same backers. Per TechCrunch, Nasty Gal is on "a growth curve of 10,000%" and "investments will be made in technology, operations (including a 500,000 square foot fulfillment center in Louisville, KY and a 50,000 square-foot office space), manufacturing, creative production — and preparing to go global." They can't be stopped. [TechCrunch; Previously; Previously]
