Stars of the Twilight series shone at the Nokia Theatre in downtown LA for the première of Breaking Dawn Part 1 last night.

Dozens of dedicated Twilight fans had camped for days outside the theatre and yesterday they finally got a glimpse of Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and Jamie Campbell.

The stars walked down a black carpet to promote the fourth instalment of the saga, which are based on the best selling vampire fantasy books by Stephenie Meyer.

Kristen Stewart ( who plays Bella Swan), vamped up in a long elegant purple sequinned dress with a thigh high split, while her on-screen and real life partner Robert Pattinson (the vampire Edward Cullen) wore a fitted grey suit.

Twenty-five-year old Pattinson (Water for Elephants) was reported by MTV as saying, ‘it’s like an alternate reality. My everyday life is so boring, and then you go to these things and everyone thinks something cool is happening’.

He went on to say that even though the film was edited down to fit a PG-13 audience, a R rated ‘harder, bloodier version would be way better’.

The UK première takes place tomorrow (Wednesday 16 November) at the new Westfield shopping centre in Stratford City. Sitting in the 5.45pm screening will be director Bill Condon, as well as other VIP guest stars. The film is released in the UK on Friday 18 November.

Breaking Dawn Part 1 sees Bella and Edward get married and begin their life together, but when Bella falls pregnant her life is put in danger as the vampire baby begins to overpower her body.

Breaking Dawn Part 2 is not expected to hit the cinemas until November 2012, but record numbers of tickets are thought to be sold for the final two instalments.
