With Labor Day still three weeks away, WWD asked fashion and social types to reveal their favorite discoveries of the past few months. From vegan fast food and vitamin drips to corn ice cream and erotic novels, here are their hottest finds.

“‘500 Days of Summer.’ I don’t say this lightly, as I have a shrine to Woody Allen, but it’s the best film of its kind since ‘Annie Hall.’”
— Jill Kargman

“Keith Kool, my new trainer who is teaching me the Tracy Anderson method.”
— Lizzie Tisch

“I found an old Borsalino hat that belonged to my stepfather. I had it patched up and have worn it all summer.”
— Fabiola Beracasa

“Hot pink, yellow and purple nail polish.”
— Julie Macklowe

“Isabel Gillies’ book ‘Happens Every Day,’ and my pale gold Jack Rogers sandals.”
— Lauren duPont

“Classic blue Vans slip-ons and Gloria Vanderbilt’s erotic novel ‘Obsession.’”
— Liz Goldwyn

“Heirloom tomatoes, Zagara di Sicilia cologne from Panarea, By Terry Baume de Rose Lip Balm.”
— Allison Sarofim

“The Veggie Grill — this new fast-food restaurant in L.A. [It’s] all vegan and healthy, but very, very delicious. They are located near LAX. Rupert and I always take our kids there before taking off.”
— Wendi Murdoch

“‘Stephen Fry in America’ and Under Armour workout gear! Loved the book and lived on my bike in Under Armour!”
— Blaine Trump

“The Frisky Oyster cafe in Greenport, N.Y.”
— Amanda Brooks

“The Penguin Sparkling Water Maker from Williams-Sonoma. The penguin makes the water fizzy. You can adjust from superfizzy like Perrier to moderate like S. Pellegrino to milder like Hendon.”
— Bronson van Wyck

“I loved so much the In-Finitum show at Palazzo Fortuny in Venice, which opened the Biennale in June. It was one of the best shows I’ve ever seen.”
— Fiona Scarry

“Gorilla Life Green Drink.”
— Jennifer Missoni

“The buttermilk apple dashi dish or the corn ice cream pie with strawberries at Momofuku Ssäm Bar. I am obsessed with both!”
— Tina Chai
