Agenda: Miu Miu; Alison Brie; 'The Master'; Propstore; The National/'Game of Thrones'

 

Fashion: Diamonds on the soles of her shoes

The devil's in the detail with these must-have Miu Miu pumps, which are one of the stand-out pieces of this season's collection. It seems every shoe designer's focus is now on the underside of the foot, after Christian Louboutin's success with scarlet, and the clusters of gems on these soles will certainly draw admiring glances. Not for wearing on your bike, mind you. Available as a limited edition from the Bond Street store, 020 7409 0900

Face to watch: Alison Brie

Comic stardom surely beckons for this ridiculously agreeable actress who graduated from Mad Men to supreme sitcom Community and now steals the show from Emily Blunt and Jason Segel in Judd Apatow's The Five-Year Engagement.

Long have we pined for a decent South Bank drinking venue, so praise be for this quirky pop-up riverfront bar built with sets and scenery from old National Theatre productions. nationaltheatre.org.uk

Music: The National/'Game of Thrones'

The Brooklyn rockers have done an excellent thing in recording a song for the soundtrack of our favourite TV show since the last one. Listen to "The Rains of Castemere" here: bit.ly/JI0yPR
