It's been a week of happy news: Bowerhaus co-founder Elizabeth Lee and her husband Benjamin Yong are expecting a second baby, Kim Raymond and Keith Foo are having a baby girl, our cover girl Liu Wen got onto Forbes' 30 Under 30 Asia list (as did Vivy Yusof and Neelofa), Dwayne Johnson is secretly Malaysian, Jude Law will play a young Dumbledore in the upcoming Fantastic Beasts sequel, and the biggest Zara store in the world just opened in Madrid.

This week hasn't been short on collaborations either. Chrissy Teigen partnered with Becca Cosmetics on a highlighter palette everyone's crazy about, Rihanna teamed up with Chopard on a jewellery collection, Vetements and Levi's designed butt-baring jeans, and Louis Vuitton and artist Jeff Koons put the Mona Lisa on a bag.

If you're out to scratch that shopping itch, look to the pharmacy buys we swear by, these flatforms you'll want to swap your heels for, this Jane Birkin-worthy straw tote, and these covetable highlighters.

Here's a few weekend reads for you: our roundup of badass women, Cole Sprouse answering FAQs about popular TV series Riverdale, Malaysian model Alicia Amin's list of must-read books, and how a haircut at this hair salon will help underprivileged kids. Have about 45 minutes for some reality TV fun? Watch episode two of Asia's Next Top Model. Drama, drama.

Finally, we remember Malaysian designer Andrew Gan, who passed away on Thursday after a heart attack. Designer Melinda Looi is among those in the industry who have opened up about how he changed their lives. Rest in peace, Andrew.
