With the ongoing International Furniture Fair and Geneva Motor Show, this week is a particularly thrilling one for design aficionados and gearheads respectively. Even food lovers aren’t left out, with celebrity chef Nancy Silverton (who recently appeared on the latest season of Chef’s Table) set to cook up a one-night-only,  five-course Italian dinner tomorrow at Osteria Mozza. We caught up with her yesterday at the restaurant, and were treated to a sumptuous meal. Check our Instagram here, for a special video of her.

Also in town is Victoria’s Secret Angel Adriana Lima, who stopped by the brand’s Mandarin Orchard flagship store this morning for the launch of the Body by Victoria line. (We even managed to get a picture!) We hear she’ll be back again at the store later today at 6pm, for an autograph session.

If none of the above tickles your fancy, have a look at this this week’s edition of The Cheat Sheet, where we treat ourselves to modern Singaporean food, put together some super stylish red outfits (without looking tacky), and drool over Riedel’s quirky bugle-shaped decanter.

Riedel’s sleek, bugle-shaped decanter is just what we need for our upcoming dinner soirée. Savouring our favourite wine has never looked as fancy.
