Kristen Stewart, who has famously swapped her heels for trainers on the red carpet, completely stole the show. Despite being spotted earlier on in the day wearing her usual jeans-t-shirt-trainers combination, she dazzled in a statement Zuhair Murad sheer black backless jumpsuit. The couture outfit came with embellishments in all of the right places to preserve her modesty along with intricate lace details along the legs. This came just two days after she donned another sheer outfit by the Lebanese designer at the film’s world premiere in Los Angeles.
The boys held their own too with Taylor Lautner opting for a modern suit from Z Zegna teamed with a simple t-shirt, while Robert Pattinson chose a wool check Burberry suit for the occasion.
The presence of the stellar cast made Leicester Square come to a standstill as 6,000 fans filled the square with some coming from as far as America and Dubai to be amongst the crowds waving them goodbye. The three main characters spent over two hours signing autographs, posing for photographs and greeting fans, some of which had camped for 72 hours in the hope of catching a glimpse of their favourite stars. Other guests at the premiere included The Saturdays, the contestants on the X Factor and Olympians Victoria Pendleton and Gemma Gibbons.
