The Cheat Sheet: Brunches, stylish sunglasses, and ways to celebrate Mother’s Day

After two consecutive long weekends of sipping coffee around town, making road trips to beaches, and pampering ourselves to long and lazy brunches, we’re back to an exciting week of fashion, entertainment and food.

If you’re on Instagram, chances are you’ve seen photos of the filming and cast of Crazy Rich Asians around our city and Singapore. We’re excited about the all-Asian cast with stars the likes of Fresh Off the Boat’s Constance Wu and Tan Sri Michelle Yeoh, as well as fresh faces such as Malaysia-born actor Henry Golding (his first feature film!) and rapper Awkwafina. Here’s everything we know about Crazy Rich Asians by director Jon M Chu, so far.

The fashion world has had a busy week too, with the ever glamorous Met Gala — the annual fund-raising event for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute. This year’s invitation called for “avant-garde” attire, in honour of Comme des Garçons and the brand’s exhibition at the museum. The word around the web was that most guests played it safe, but leave it Rihanna to show the world how it’s done — she rocked up in a stunning ruffled and structured gown designed by the brand.
