So like, no big deal or anything, but The FABlife will be live on the Eclipse premiere red carpet next Thursday, mic and camera in hand, chatting with any and every Eclipse star that strolls by. We’re nervously sweating already, but that’s why our doctor hooks us up with prescription strength deodorant. *Crickets*
But we need your help! Sure, we’ve got some questions we want to ask the cast (‘Kristen, will you bake us a pie?’) but we want to be sure to ask as many questions from the fans as possible. So get typing! Post your questions – no matter how silly or ridiculous – for the Twilighters in the comments below and we’ll do our best to get them to the cast on the red carpet in Los Angeles next Thursday.
We’ll also be here that night (June 24!) live-blogging the premiere with a live chat, photos, galleries and polls galore. Join us, your FABlife Twi-hards, for a night of squeeing even more epic than Robsten’s hand holding episode in Paris. For reals, guys.
Don’t forget to hit up The FABlife on Twitter: @thefablife.

How we wish we could share a giggly group hug with Kristen Stewart (photos) and her stylist today. Oh and while we’re at it, let’s throw in her hair and makeup team too. While she’s ultra-casual in person (which we love) the girl takes it up a notch – or ten – every time she steps on to the red carpet, and she’s been stone cold killing it during the Eclipse press tour. She and Taylor are currently in Rome, where she showed up in a dress that is both sexy and classy, a combo so rarely pulled off in Hollywood.
The lady is quickly becoming a total fashion icon in our eyes. Don’t believe us? Let us count the ways.
1. She dresses for her age – 20 – and keeps her own style in mind, embracing her edgy, rock n’ roll, glam side. But she never, ever skanks out.
2. It never looks like she’s donning some desperate get-up just to get attention (cough, Kim Kardashian, cough) and she lets the clothes speak for themselves, keeping her hair, make up and jewelery to a minimum.
3. She also doesn’t compromise her taste for the red carpet – she’s been wearing her special necklace, for example (we’re sure Rob can tell you all about it) at every photo call and she took her ridiculous Joan Jett hair cut and embraced it, turning it into something cool and distinctly her own.
4. Kristen is risky, but she never so much that she’d grace a bad fashion list, and her shoe choices are consistently both timeless and on-trend.
5. She always – always - looks like herself.
In short: swoon.
Thanks in large part to the teen-savvy directorial acumen of original Twilight helmer Catherine Hardwicke, the film adaptations of author Stephenie Meyers’s series of pro-abstinence vampire novels have always come equipped with a killer soundtrack. Meyer herself has often acknowledged that Muse — a band she has personally acknowledged in the credits of her books New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn — stands above all others when it comes to serving as inspiration for the forbidden romance between Edward and Bella. Therefore, it surprised no one when the British threesome’s songs appeared on the soundtracks of the first two films in the series.
However, for the release of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (only 48 days away, people!), Muse decided to repay Meyers for all of the unwavering support she has shown them over the years by writing an original track for the film. The song, entitled “Neutron Star Collision (Love is Forever),” is just as grandiose, majestic and lovelorn as, well, puppy love itself. And although the official video for the song won’t be released until May 20th, we’ve managed to get our hands on a 30-second preview of the highly dramatic song for you, which ought to whet your appetite for the next few days. Enjoy!
Cast members of the uber-popular Twilight movie series have begun arriving in Vancouver to start rehearsals for the third flick of the franchise, Eclipse. Fan favorites including Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz, and Nikki Reed (who has moved on from Rob Pattinson to Paris Hilton dumpee, Paris Latsis) were joined at the airport by cast newbies Xavier Samuel and Bryce Dallas Howard. For a group of hot twenty-somethings with millions of obsessed fans at their fingertips, the crew appeared sullen and low-key as they sulked around the baggage claim. Ashley even made a poor attempt to hide behind her iPhone. Could they be overwhelmed by the recent re-casting drama plaguing the flick?
Noticeably absent from the group were the movie’s mega-stars, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart. Tay-Tay’s been busy shooting the rom-com Valentine’s Day, while one RPattz-obsessed Twitter claims the British actor will finish shooting Remember Me in NYC on Friday and then supposedly head to L.A. before landing in “The Couve” sometime next week. Think he and KStew are heading off on a romantic getaway before jetting to Canada for work? [Photo: Splash News Online]
Shooting hasn’t even begun on the third Twilight Saga flick (Eclipse), but drama is already plaguing the film. Just days after the cast got cozy in front of fans at Comic-Con, Summit Entertainment has dropping actress Rachelle LeFevre (pictured, left) and replaced her with Bryce Dallas Howard (right). LeFevre, who portrayed the vampire Victoria in the first two flicks, is a fan favorite, and is known for her friendly demeanor and her breast cancer fund-raising on Twitter. In a statement released last night, she said she was “stunned” and “saddened” by Summit’s decision, adding, ” I am hurt deeply by Summit’s surprising decision to move on without me.”
Summit responded by accusing LeFevre, who had also accepted a part in the movie Barney’s Version, of creating unresolvable scheduling conflicts. “Ms. Lefevre took a role in the other film that places her in Europe during the required rehearsal time, and at least 10 days of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse’s principal photography. This period is essential for both rehearsal time with the cast, and for filming at key locations that are only available during the initial part of production,” Summit said in a statement. “The fact remains that Ms. Lefevre’s commitment to the other project—which she chose to withhold from Summit until the last possible moment—makes her unfortunately unavailable to perform the role of Victoria in [Eclipse].”
Fans of the uber-popular series are freaking out across the web, and an online petition has been started in support of LeFevre reclaiming the role. But E! Online reports that Summit insiders – who allegedly wanted to drop LeFevre due to her gigantic salary for Eclipse – don’t care what the Twi-hards have to say. When asked if their protest would have any effect on their decision, one Summit source replied, “I don’t think so.” Ouch. Hurts almost as much as a vampire bite. [Photos: GettyImages]
