Last Thursday was a good one for celebrity sightings – and signings — in Pasadena.

Tim Gunn was doling out fashion tips at Kate Spade in the One Colorado complex, and Raquel Welch was signing copies of her book “Raquel: Beyond the Cleavage” at Vroman’s Bookstore.
The book is partly Welch’s own autobiography — beyond the surface image of enduring sex symbol — and partly her philosophical take on topics like love, sex, style, health, body image, career, family, forgiveness and aging.

Love. Zombies. They’re both infectious, and they’re both the subject of Gallery Nucleus’ Valentine’s art happening “Zombies in Love.”
It’s much ado about something dead. (Has the Jane Austen/zombie love affair already jumped the shark?)
Gallery organizers advise bringing your beloved to the exhibit, because true love doesn’t die — or un-die.
The opening reception will feature a volunteer zombie walk; arrive in your finest undead state for the sake of art. The zombified also are spared the $2 cover charge.
Paintings, sculptures and live performances will be showcased in the gallery, and zombie professionals from film and publishing will be signing their work, including Chris Lane, the Oakland illustrator who collaborated on “Zombies: A Record of the Year of Infection.”
Opening Feb. 6, 7 p.m.-11 p.m. Zombie walk at 6:20 p.m., starts at corner of Atlantic and Main St. Exhibit runs through Feb. 22. Gallery Nucleus, 210 E. Main St., Alhambra. 626-458-7477. gallerynucleus.com
