Christian Louboutin. His shoes are rather natty, you'll agree. So it'll come as no surprise that he has rather a knack when it comes to styling up his home and garden, too. From now until Sunday, you can take a look for yourself, as he has teamed up with hip gardening magazine Rakes Progress to put on a pop-up exhibition of never-before-seen shots of his Chateau and gardens in France. Set amid an a floral installation, you can expect lavish vintage-inspired interiors, sweeping grounds and, of course, the odd artfully placed shoe. Never mind Right Move: THIS is what we call property porn.

NIGHTLIFE: Feelings Xmas Bonanza
OK, people, we're nearing mid-December: time to start taking party season seriously. And here, we would heartily suggest, is the place to do it. Because Feelings – the party crew responsible for some of London's most rambunctious raves – are not just throwing a Christmas bash. Oh no: they're throwing a Christmas BONANZA, and they've recruited two pioneers of '90s dance, Todd 'The God' Edwards and Mood II Swing, to the cause. Expect the music to be on-point, the beats to be on tap and the crowd to be on for a big one. As we said: SERIOUS.
9 Dec; £12.50

Here's the dirt on DIRT: it's Berber & Q's frankly splendid series of wine-tastings with a twist. The twist being that at each event two sommeliers go head to head to select their favourite bottles, from the well-known to the downright obscure, according to the climate in which they were grown – and the winner is whosever bins are emptied first. At this Sunday's round the theme is 'Peak', which sees experts Alessandra Saponara (of Fera at Claridge's) and Clément Jeannin (of Vivant in Paris) trying to tempt us with vintages from mountainous regions. Which, let's face it, won't be hard. No need to fight, guys: we've got enough love to go around ALL the wine.
10 Dec; £19 including two glasses of wine and a mezze
