Breaking Dawn- Part 1 is the second to last film in Summit Entertainment's five-film franchise that stars Robert Pattinson as vampire Edward, Kristen Stewart as his human love interest Bella and Taylor Lautner as werewolf Jacob.

Stewart glammed it up on the carpet with anelegant long purple and black sparkly gown by J. Mendel.  Nikki Reed wore a long pale green Marchesa gown, Jimmy Choo shoes, Sutra earrings, a Neil Lane ring, and a Judith Leiber clutch.

The male leads of the film, including Pattinson, Lautner and Kellan Lutz all sported smart-looking suits. Fans can see plenty of Lutz in theaters this month – the actor is starring in last week’s Relativity release, Immortals, along with Breaking Dawn.

Lutz recently talked to The Hollywood Reporter about his experience working in Breaking Dawn versus Immortals.

“Twilight’s kind of crazy. I’m very happy to be a part of them. But the last movie did seven months, and still wasn’t a well-oiled machine and it gets kind of tough,” Lutz told The Hollywood Reporter on the red carpet at the premiere event for Immortals.

“We’re all very blessed and I love the experience. But working with Relativity and doing Immortals was just a world of difference, so much more enjoyable,” he added.

Other stars that appeared at the Breaking Dawn – Part 1 premiere included Twilight author Stephenie Meyer, Ashley Greene, Bruno Mars, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Heather Locklear.
