Kate Winslet has been the talk of the town this week, after she was forced to deny those pregnancy rumours following her appearance at the Oscars. Fans can see the English rose in her new thriller Triple 9, in which the actress plays a cruel mafia boss.
Fashion lovers and foodies are in for a treat; Bobbi Brown Cosmetics has just launched its afternoon tea. Meanwhile, a yoga supper club by Echo Falls is popping up around London.
Read on for this week's hot events and new releases...
FOOD AND DRINK
With a head chef who previously worked at Michelin-starred Chez Bruce, it's no wonder foodies are flocking to hotspot Del'Aziz in Bermondsey. The restaurant focuses on North African and Middle Eastern dishes, including chicken tagine, merguez sausages and spiced rack of lamb, as well as the classic steaks and burgers. Entertainment includes live jazz, belly dancing, a chic wine and cocktail bar and a shisha lounge open in the summer.

Oscar nominee Kate Winslet is back on the big screen in Triple 9, which also stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, Casey Affleck and Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul. The crime thriller follows a gang of criminals and corrupt policemen who plan the murder of a fellow officer in order to pull of the biggest heist in town. Kate, who plays mafia boss Irina Vlaslov, admitted that she was "terrified" about taking on the role that is so out of her comfort zone.
BEAUTY AND FASHION
Bobbi Brown Cosmetics afternoon tea
A special afternoon tea for the foodies and fashionistas! Bobbi Brown Cosmetics celebrates its 25th anniversary this year and to coincide with this, the make-up favourite has partnered with Balthazar restaurant. Think Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner re-invented as a rich chocolate and sharp blackberry sachertorte, or a Shimmer Brick made from champagne-infused rhubarb with orange and ginger cream. After feasting on sweets and savouries, guests are invited to arrange a complimentary make-up lesson at Bobbi Brown's Covent Garden Studio. The tea runs daily until 29 September.
