The hot sun, the warm sand, the intoxicating scent of bug spray: yes, the summer time is prime time for hook-ups, both celebrity and original flavor. From the clam-chowder-and-madras-plaid love of Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy, to the surprise engagement of Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger (their wedding is going to be designed by Hot Topic, right?), check out our favorite hook-ups from summer 2012, and wish you hadn’t spent the last three months inside on your computer:
Who and who got married, you ask? We feel your surprise, because this one’s totally come out of left field. We weren’t even aware that Giovanni Ribisi and Agyness Deyn were dating. So the fact that they are now married, well, cue the dropped jaws. It’s all true, folks, because the actor’s rep had confirmed it by saying, “It’s true. Agyness Deyn and Giovanni Ribisi quietly married in Los Angeles over the weekend.” Them getting hitched would have gone completely under radar as well, if it hadn’t been for a chance sighting by a reporter of the Crown City News who spotted them making out outside the East L.A. Branch of the the L.A. County Registrar’s Office. The piece states, “I asked him and the blond woman if they were getting married today and they quietly said yes, in a shy kind of way.” It also adds, “I asked if the two had been together for a while, and they looked at each other and kind of smiled, and he vaguely said ‘A while.’ Then I told them I was kind of embarrassed to ask, but could I get a picture of him, and he said sure, no problem.” Okay, we’re still shocked. It’s incredible how quiet they kept this news!
This is Deyn’s first marriage and Ribisi’s second. He split with his first wife, Mariah O’Brien, in 2001 and the ex-couple have a daughter, Lucia, together. Congratulations, you two crazy kids! Don’t disappear into secrecy again!

Most of us have that painful period during our teen years that we spend the rest of our life trying to forget. It’s forever known as “the awkward phase”, and photos from the era are purged from family albums in a manner that would do Stalin proud. Well, it seems that Heidi Klum never had that awkward phase. This would explain why she’s a world famous supermodel and we are not.
The former Victoria’s Secret Angel tweeted a photo over the weekend showing herself as a fresh faced (and GORGEOUS) 19-year old on one of her early modeling dates. “Wow! Check out this picture from 1992,” she wrote. “One of my very first photo shoots. This is my original hair color!” Though still a teen, Klum still stares down the lens like a pro. Must be the genes. Contrary to what Maybelline wants you to think, she’s definitely born with it. And so are many other super models! Check out the gallery below for some early pix of Miranda Kerr, Alessandra Ambrosio, Kate Upton, and tons more lovely ladies who have literally never taken a bad photo in their entire lives. Bask in their photogenic-ness!
Watch out, Channing, Matthew, Joe and Alex, there’s a new fake stripper in town. Like many a beautiful person before her, model Agyness Deyn isn’t content with just one career. She’s also trying her hand at acting. After a small role in Clash of the Titans, the 28-year-old landed the part of Flo, a “strong-minded stripper” in Pusher, a movie about a drug dealer whose life spins out of control over the course of a week, the Telegraph reports.
Agyness sounds like she’s been seriously bitten by the acting bug, too. She’s making her stage debut in London in The Leisure Society beginning in February. “When I did Pusher in the summer, it was like: this is what I’m supposed to be doing,” she told the Evening Standard. “I just loved it so much and it excites me to be able to do it. I want to do it as much as possible — film, theatre, everything.”

We’ve noticed that Ashlee Simpson‘s recent style choices are nearly identical to the style of model Agyness Deyn. Yes, both of them are hipsters who like hats, musicians, and vintage band t-shirts and that’s not all that uncommon. But after comparing and contrasting the two, it actually seems like they routinely follow in each others style footsteps. Ashlee dyes her hair black, Agyness dyes her hair black. Agyness throws a fedora on, Ashlee throws a fedora on. Great minds thinking alike, or two fashionable starlets copying each other’s looks? Check out a few more uncanny side-by-side photos and decide for yourself.
