“Fashion is really about a darker mood this season, and this movie suits that,” Jason Wu told Style.com last night at Finale club on Bowery, where he was celebrating the release of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn—Part 2 with his pal Dakota Fanning. “She was with me the other night at the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards, so I really wanted to come here to support her.” The vampire wore midnight blue Valentino for the occasion.
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson were no-shows at the screening hosted by the Cinema Society with The Hollywood Reporter and Samsung Galaxy, but otherwise, the cast was out in full force. Peter Facinelli, Elizabeth Reaser, Maggie Grace, Mackenzie Foy, Lisa Howard, and Casey LaBow mingled with designers like Rachel Roy and Nanette Lepore. And while the press tour for the final movie in the Twilight saga will likely go on for weeks, the actors were dwelling on endings. “I think part of coming into myself is just growing up, and becoming more comfortable in my own skin,” said Ashley Greene, who wore a corseted Donna Karan gown, also midnight blue. “Over the course of time I’ve figured out what works for me and what doesn’t—being on a lot of carpets helps me navigate that.” For Kellan Lutz, celebrating in the Big Apple had special significance. “When you do five films, all of which are meaningful, it’s a long road trip with lifelong friendships, and to have this be the final premiere here in my hometown means a lot to me.”
