They say music soothes the savage beast, but it seems to us that the best musically-driven movie scenes do just the opposite: They get our toes tapping, our hands clapping and our rumps shaking. When executed the right way, scenes that heavily involve music — such as the ‘Tiny Dancer’ sing-along in Cameron Crowe’s ‘Almost Famous’ — can leave unforgettable impressions for decades to come.

Most of the time, I think Vanessa Hudgens gets dressed by biting the Olsen Twins’ boho style from three years ago, but I couldn’t stop drooling over this little ensemble she wore last week for a press event. So fun for a date night look! Velvet usually makes me think of winter, but I love the idea of taking this look into spring by ditching the long sleeves and losing the fishnets in favor of bare legs and arms.
