Of the current generation of post-Disney super starlets, Demi Lovato has stayed closest to the squeaky image of the Mickey Mouse ears. It appears that the 180-degree image change of Spring Breakers or twerk-appropriation isn’t necessary for the 22-year-old singer to lead a procession of multi-platinum bubblegum hits. In fact, Lovato doubled-down on her Disney investment last year, covering Idina Menzel’s Oscar-winning “Let It Go” from Frozen, ear-worming her voice into the next generation of Disney audiences. And with her booming set of mezzo-soprano pipes, Lovato isn’t letting go anytime soon.

Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr tug on every heartstring in 1957’s An Affair to Remember.

The Botanical Garden screens the classic—bring the blankets, bring your sweetie and revel in the romance.

The Gothic era of the Catholic Church, overt sexuality and female power are among the themes informing “Salvation,” the spring 2015 collection from local designer Leighton Whittington’s new fashion line Leighton W. Couture. Flowy and revealing, yet toughened up with hard-edged styling and a rebellious spirit, the debut collection makes its statement almost entirely in black and gold (an on-trend color palette if you ask Sarah Burton, creative director at Alexander McQueen). Blurring lines between exhibition opening and fashion show, “Salvation” highlights more than 20 original looks (worn by models and local personalities) enhanced with a sound installation, visual art by James Raska and a confessional area with wearable prizes based on the best Facebook and Instagram posts tagged #salvation2015. According to Whittington, “The time has come for a fashion salvation and resurrection.”
