It’s 2018: a year full of terrifying possibilities, like the fact that Karlie Kloss and Taylor Swift may no longer be friends. The longtime besties, who posed together for the cover of Vogue in 2015, have been less expressive with each other over the last year or so, and now Kloss has done the unthinkable. On Monday, she posted a video on Twitter and Instagram with the caption, “Swish swish,” which is the name of Katy Perry’s hate song about Swift. Why?
The video itself is part of LOVE magazine’s Advent Calendar series, which is a short film project where Instagram models and Victoria’s Secret Angels wear suggestive outfits while exercising. (That’s really all you need to know.) Kloss’s video is basketball-themed. So, “Swish swish” could be a totally benign reference to the game. Except, nothing in Taylor Swift’s world means nothing, and her fans are freaking out in the comments of Kloss’s Instagram. Some of them are invested in the theory that Kloss and Swift are actually romantically involved (#Kaylor), and now, oh my God, what is happening? Swift hasn’t said anything about her friendship or more-than-friendship with Kloss, but sometime last night, Kloss changed the caption on her Instagram to read, “Nothing but net.” Too late, in my opinion.
Swift is still officially dating the 26-year-old British actor Joe Alwyn, and according to multiple reports, they spent New Year’s Eve together in Los Angeles. Where was Kloss?
Per Instagram, she was in Peru with her boyfriend, Josh Kushner (brother of Jared), and a party corps including Derek Blasberg (professional celebrity friend), Dasha Zhukova (ex-wife of Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich), Erin Foster (daughter of David), Kristina O’Neill (editor of WSJ magazine), and Jen Meyer (celebrity jewelry designer, leader of the Hollywood mom’s club, and ex-wife of Tobey Maguire). Swift, to my knowledge, is not friends with any of these people, though they are all rich and powerful in their own spheres.
Meanwhile, Tobey Maguire was skiing in Aspen with his captain Leo DiCaprio. There are photos of the two them taking on the mountain here. As you can see, DiCaprio wore a disguise
Know who else was in Aspen for New Year’s? Several other celebrities, but also DiCaprio’s rumored new girlfriend, the 20-year-old model Camila Morrone. The pair made headlines just before Christmas, when DiCaprio was spotted leaving Morrone’s house in L.A. on a Saturday morning. Despite this evidence and the fact that Morrone is very much DiCaprio’s type, a source close to DiCaprio told the Cut that they are not dating. In fact, their families are friends! Morrone’s mother, Lucila Sola, has been dating DiCaprio’s pal Al Pacino for years. Here are photos of Sola and Pacino on the beach together in Mexico in April. (For the record: Sola is 38, DiCaprio is 43, and Pacino is 77.)
So which celebrities definitely hooked up over the holidays? Selena Gomezand Justin Bieber continued their dramatic reunion tour in Cabo on New Year’s Eve. Both reportedly traveled to Mexico with friends. “Justin had a great New Year’s Eve with Selena,” a source told E! News. “He is looking forward to 2018 with her. It was a special evening shared with a few close friends in a beautiful place.” Okay!
Other couples stayed closer to home. The officially-back-together Jenny Slate and Chris Evans spent Christmas together in Boston, and Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus stayed in L.A. According to People, Affleck reunited with Jennifer Garner and their kids for Christmas. Here are some photos of Affleck and Shookus looking super pleased on the 26th.
