It was the night many of Twilight's American fans had been longing for - on par with being devoured by Rob Pattinson I'm sure. The red carpet was rolled out in Los Angeles for the US premiere of New Moon last night. Drawing thousands, mostly screaming young girls, and a list of Hollywood stars, it wasn't the boyss but rather the girls who stole the show.

Kristen Stewart took the opportunity to reveal a more feminine side with a floor-length strapless tulle Oscar de la Renta gown. It was a refreshing look for the 19-year-old who was once again a little let down in the hair department. It seems that Joan Jett haircut is posing a few problems for Kristen when it comes to frocking up. I wonder if she took this up with Joan, who was also in attendance at the premiere.

Meanwhile, Ashley Greene took a bold risk in a striking red fishtail dress by Prabal Gurung. I love the way this gown drapes over the shoulders and Ashley certainly has the figure to pull it off. How different does she look without her Alice Cullen short wispy wig?


Another one who appears to have grown up overnight is Dakota Fanning. The young actress who plays the vampire Jane in the film, chose the occasion to show off her legs in a cute black Valentino minidress. As for the lads, well it was good to see Rob lose a bit of the scruff he had at the London premiere and don a suit. While Taylor Lautner certainly had the ladies squealing "Jacob!" in a dapper blue suit.
