Kristen Stewart wows at Twilight premier

It was the film series that shot them to fame and also saw them begin a love affair that kept their fans delighted and enthralled.

It was only right that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart were together to begin their goodbyes to the Twilight saga as they arrived at the UK premiere of Breaking Dawn: Part 1 in London last night.

Greeted by hundreds of screaming fans, the on and off-screen couple looked every inch the movie stars as they posed for pictures on the red carpet at the Westfield Shopping Centre in Stratford.

Kristen, 21, looked absolutely gorgeous in her long black sheer sequinned dress by Roberto Cavalli which flattered her tiny frame to perfection.

It was a rare moment of glamour for the actress who usually keeps it quite short and funky for red carpet events but clearly had decided that tonight was a big occasion that was worthy of a grown-up glitzy frock.

It was also nice to see a beaming smile on her face, as they actress is usually one to keep rather straight-faced and serious for the cameras.

But tonight was a big deal for her as she and her co-stars start to say goodbye to a global blockbuster franchise that has brought the Stephanie Meyers books to the big screen.

Like the Harry Potter cast, they will have to do this all over again next year for the very last time when part two of the final chapter is released.

But for now, it was all about the first part, which witnesses the wedding between Bella and Edward and her falling pregnant with a half-vampire baby.
