Oooooooh! We hope this is true! People is reporting that eighteen-year-old Karlie Kloss and twenty-one-year old Joe Jonas are dating. How adorbs! The two attended the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club celebrating Prince William's win and goofed around in the Jacks Wills photo booth together. That's quite a way to kick off a romance.

What's the latest trend in fashion? In her latest column, Neapolitan owner Kelly Golden reveals her current passion. 

"Fashion doesn’t have to be serious or stop when the heat of summer takes over. Lately, I have been struck by all the fashionable people riding their bikes!  Of course, this is most often seen in major metropolitan areas like Chicago, New York, Paris, and Milan, but why not adopt that sporty chic look to your summer activities?  With all the flats and espadrilles that have taken over our summertime look, pop on that cute dress and hat to match!  (Yes, you can wear a dress while riding a bike--just make sure it’s slightly a-line.) Even I’ve been inspired to ride my bike to work lately, and I actually feel less guilty about indulging in that glass of wine at night!  While going green and riding your bike to the park or farmer’s market, feel that summer laissez a faire by ditching the workout gear and donning your casual-chic side."

Now that Kate Moss and Jamie Hince have finally married, the rumors will slow down a bit, right? Hell no! The Daily Star reports that the newlyweds are now on a mission to become pregnant. Of course they are! A "friend" close to the couple told the paper: "Kate peaked at her wedding with booze, fags and bacon butties, but Jamie wants her to become healthier as they try for a child." Over the weekend it was also reported that the couple were caught up in an earthquake while honeymooning on Sir Phillip Green's yacht in Corsica. An onlooker told The Sun: "People on the shore were alarmed, but Kate and Jamie's boat has been rocking all week so they may not even have noticed."

We weren't able to join Betsey Johnson this weekend for the Flatt magazine dinner at the Paige-Moet estate in the Hamptons, but it looks like she managed to have fun without us. Oh, Betsey! We love our Summer 2011 obsession more and more every day.

While most eyes were on Kate and Will at the BAFTA Brits to Watch event on Saturday night, Elizabeth Banks made sure they didn't entirely steal the spotlight. The 30 Rock actress wore a sexy Versace one shoulder white gown with gold Medusa buttons and maxi pocket detail on the side from Donatella's fall/winter 2011 collection. Perfection!

Rebecca Minkoff's Fantasy Vacay

Rebecca Minkoff's Costa Rican adventures continue!

 

"This week, we’re trekking through part dos of my Costa Rican fantasy summer vacation with my husband. In my last column, we got our feet wet by soaking up some very authentic culture. This time, we’re talking snacks, sightseeing and adventure! In my suitcase, you’ll find bikinis, chic cover-ups for coastal dining endeavors and hiking boots, because I refuse to believe that just because I’m pregnant, I can’t manage to be active and enjoy all that this stunning country has to offer. I’m not saying I’m partaking in the famed zipline tours that Costa Rica is renowned for, but you’re so rarely in the rainforest these days, so carpe diem!

 

At base camp Jade House, in Puntarenas, our chef whips up a delicious breakfast for us every morning which we enjoy poolside, looking out over the Pacific, breathing in that air that, I swear, only exists right on the equator. After that moment, it’s off to get the adrenaline pumping. We drive up the coast to the remarkable little village of Uvita, legendary for its whale and dolphin watching. Unfortunately, our trip wasn’t timed right for the humpback whales, so we decided to opt for the “most popular” tour that fully covers the Marino Ballena National Park, including a boat trip out to look for whales and dolphins and a little snorkeling trip. Not only is Uvita absolutely beautiful, but if you feel like breaking out of your comfort zone and hopping into the ocean, do it! I was openly terrified about getting in the water, but we managed to see an enormous eagle ray, sea turtles that were SO adorbs, bottle nose dolphins, and a plethora of gorgeous little fish that made me squeal like a little kid into my snorkel.  Unforgettable.

After all of that excitement (I swear I must’ve burned 1,000 calories laughing!), I obviously was ready for a refreshing beverage and some hearty Costa Rican food. We made our way to the super charming and cute restaurant called, The Gecko. The views will take your breath away, especially around sunset. Our meal was incredible and the tamarind juice is so unique and delicious, I wish I could bottle it and bring it home. Oh well, I guess I’ll just have to come back to Costa Rica sooner rather than later to get my fix. Shucks.

 

At the Gecko, I made sure to ask our waiter where to get the best ice cream in Puntarenas and he so excitedly directed us back to Dominical to Ruby’s Homemade Ice Cream… and HOLY MOLY…. It’s so real and fresh and delicious- I am very confident that your mind will be blown. It was hot as hell, and this little slice of heaven was just what the doctor ordered. I will be dreaming about this little establishment for a long time. I had banana chip, and if it was possible to sum up one fabulous Costa Rican vacation in one ice cream flavor, this would have been it. While I systematically devour my ice cream, my husband and I take a stroll through the lazy little village of Dominical. This miniature surfing community doesn’t even have paved roads, but the energy here is infectious. The energy is not for climbing the corporate ladder or getting ahead in life much like it is in Manhattan. Here, it truly feels like time has stopped and the only thing everyone cares about is utilizing exactly what this part of the world has to offer, sun, surf, snacks, beach, cute little shops and non-touristy knick knack stores. Me encanta!!!!

 

I’m so sad to leave Costa Rica. The people, the views, the scenery, the sea turtles (so cute!), the food… I pat my hubby on the back for a job very well done. I left a piece of my heart in Puntarenas. Until next time!
