Twilight Stars Style Evolution

Five Years, Five Movies, Four Break-Out stars and a multitude of gorgeous gowns...
To commemorate the end of the Twilight Saga movie franchise this week, we take a look back at how each of the leading ladies' style has evolved since the beginning in 2008. This is a red carpet recap of all the world premiere events. Who has upped their style ante over the years?

Kristen Stewart

Breaking Dawn Part 2 2012 - For the final movie premiere Kristen took a plunge and wore a very racy unlined Zuhair Murad gown. The caramel corseted strapless dress is completely see-though with a narrow waist belt. You either love it or hate it.
Breaking Dawn Part 1 2011 - Bold in blue, K-Stew wowed at the US premiere in a cobalt J.Mendel sequin sprayed gown with thigh-baring slit, along with Jimmy Choo heels
Breaking Dawn Part 1 2011 UK - Kristen was hypnotic at the London premiere in a black sheer beaded Roberto Cavalli gown, styled with a wide leather McQueen belt & Jimmy Choos.
Eclipse 2010 - For the June premiere, the 22-year-old star picked a pristine white embellished one-sleeved Elie Saab dress with nude Christian Louboutin pumps.
New Moon 2009 - Kristen went dainty and feminine in a white tulle Oscar de la Renta gown, specked with metallic graffiti beadwork.
Twilight 2008 - For her very first thrust into the Twilight spotlight, Kristen wore a tri-coloured Balenciaga Resort 2009 one-shouldered dress with black pumps. Edgy and sexy - two things definitive of the starlet's style.

Stand Out Look - The elegant black Roberto Cavalli gown. What I like about Kristen's Twilight style is her confidence to experiment with different types of looks.

Ashley Greene


Breaking Dawn Part 2 2012 - Ashley looks ethereal in a floaty pale one-shouldered Donna Karan gown with draped bodice and layered chiffon skirt.
Breaking Dawn Part 1 2011 - The actress was vampish in a custom made crimson red Donna Karan gown with asymmetrical layered panels.
Eclipse 2010 - The brunette beauty goes Grecian in a blue-grey Alexis Mabille strapless couture gown that's clasped at the side with a capacious silhouette.
New Moon 2009Ashley sizzled in a red haute Prabal Gurung gown, with high neck and off-the-shoulder added straps.
Twilight 2008 - Starting off on a stylish note back in '08, Ashley looked lovely in a black ruffle-tiered dress by Ina Soltani with decorative belt and strappy sandals.


Stand Out Look - 2011's radiant red Donna Karan gown. Ashley has always had a great sense of style, she continues to refine it as time goes by.

Dakota Fanning

Breaking Dawn Part 2 2012 - Dakota debuted her new brunette tresses at last night's premiere, looking regal in a teal blue Elie Saab gown with transparent lace side insert.
Eclipse 2010 - Dakota picked out a fawn shaded Elie Saab dress, beautifully embroidered with a feathered hemline. Her studded bow sandals are by Christian Louboutin.
New Moon 2009 - A much younger Dakota made her Twilight red carpet debut in a black lace Valentino dress with scalloped hem, pairing it with burgundy satin heels.

Stand Out Look - This week's Elie Saab gown was impeccable. For me, Dakota has had the most consistent style over the years, always pretty and charming.

Nikki Reed

Breaking Dawn Part 2 2012 - Rounding up her Twilight style, Nikki looked statuesque in an ice grey Versace gown with metallic trimmed corset.
Breaking Dawn Part 1 2011 - The 24-year-old brought beautiful colour to the carpet in a mint green Grecian inspired Marchesa gown with gold beaded border.
Eclipse 2010 - Nikki chose a fanciful powder blue Marchesa dress with embellished bodice, full feathered skirt and shoulders. This has an ice capades feel to it, don't you think?
New Moon 2009 - Nikki went simple in a icy blue Burberry Prorsum mini dress with drape-pleat detailing, a black belt and strappy Louboutin sandals.
Twilight 2008 - A mediocre start, Nikki's twilight red carpet debut was in a black and white floral Marchesa dress with Rene Caovilla pumps.

Stand Out Look - The finesse and poise of her 2012 Versace gown remains unmatched. Looking back, Nikki's style has definitely evolved for the better over the years.

I've had a weakness for Ashley's style ever since I discovered her all those years ago. She is always very feminine and glamorous, and she's the epitome of gorgeous brunette to me!
Amazing round-up, Sam!

Boy, did Kristen ever evolve!!!!wow!I remember her when she was so young and wearing a pair of converse at the premiere!She really rocks it now!!!I do not particularly like her as an actress, she bites her lip too much when she acts and though very slim she looks like she doesn't have a single muscle in her body!:)My opinion at least...!;)But when it comes to her style, most of the time she is pretty awesome!:))

All of these ladies have definitely come a loooong way but most improved I think is Nikki Reed. Her early outfits are really really bad! lol

Katie Q. said...

It's funny to see how much they've all grown up,Ashely Green has the prettiest style, but I love how each of these young ladies really seems to know who they are and they all have their own, very personal sense of style. Seems rare for Hollywood these days.

What a great post
I'm twilight obsess and love how they've all evolved and changed their style over the length of the series
for me Kristen Stewart has definitely had the most dramatic change, she seems more confident and more prepared to take risks and they pay off!
