Xavier Samuel Flaunts Girlfriend, Creates River of Twilight Tears


If you’ve seen Eclipse then you know that the Twilight gods dropped a new piece of vamp ass in the laps of Twi-hards, causing them (er, us?) to froth at the mouth. Xavier Samuel plays the blood-thirst Riley (RIP sweet newborn), and he’s Australian, boyishly handsome and generally beefier than Robert Pattinson (photos) but without Taylor Lautner‘s Jersey Shore-esque muscles. In other words, perfs.

With Rob off eating Kristen Stewart‘s (photos) loquat pies and Taylor making out with a picture of his own abs, we thought our chances of landing a Twilight boyfriend were long gone. But with Xavier, hope blossomed in our delusional heart and we knew it would not be long before we were walking red carpets in Marchesa gowns as his better half. Until, that is, we were confronted with these pictures of him and his girlfriend strolling hand in hand in New York City.

You can imagine the kind of scribbling that went down in our journal last night. We wept, we mourned, we blasted Lykke Li‘s “Possibility” on repeat and destroyed our Xavier Samuel shrine while shoving Edy’s Cookies n’ Cream ice cream in our mouth. But then we came across these pics of Xavier and our new enemy hand in hand this weekend and glanced down at his atrocious man sandals and felt a little better about letting go. Rob may be taken, but at least we know we’ll never have to see his pasty white toes pressed up against tight leather anytime soon. And that makes it all okay.

Kristen Stewart’s Top 25 Hottest Outfits Ever


Since taking on the role of Bella Swan in The Twilight Saga in 2008, Kristen Stewart (photos) has not only generated frenzied fan worship but also established herself as a mainstay on Best Dressed lists. Over the years, and especially after portraying Joan Jett in The Runaways, KStew has defined her style as rocker chic. Often in black and always flaunting her enviable legs, she works the red carpet in the hottest labels from Prabul Gurung to Marchesa to Elie Saab. She consistently completes the look with sky-high designer heels, though is notorious for having Converse within arm’s reach for the moment the paps stop snapping.

Just as the films of The Twilight Saga continue to improve, Kristen’s style keeps evolving as she takes more risks and gains confidence in front of the cameras. She’s been on a fashionable roll throughout the Eclipse press tour, inspiring us to once again collaborate with our fellow fashion lovers and KStew admirers at Kristen Stewart News to chronicle Mrs. Robsten‘s Top 25 Hottest Outfits Ever.

Robsten Confirmed? They’re A Couple!


We KNEW it. Well, everyone knew it, but HAH. Robsten(photos) are real! Bring out the tissues, get some ice-cream, keep all breakables away, get a new haircut or buy some new shoes… whatever you need to do to deal with the heartbreak. Eclipse producer Wyck Godfrey has pretty much outed Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson as a couple in an interview with Time. No more acting coy! Months of speculation have come down to this!

He was flat-out asked what he thought about their down-low relationship and responded, “The thing I do think about is, Oh my God, I hope they stay together. Because it could be awkward on set in the next movie if they have a huge falling out. It’s like, Wow, they have to portray this love story through two more movies. God, I hope they stay together; please stay together. That’s what affects my day-to-day.”

Did you read that? Right there… they’re real! They exist!

And that’s not all he gabbed about. When the interviewer asked him about the intense media coverage on them, he commented, “I don’t feel it’s out there anymore. Do people still report on it? If you look at people who have a stable personal life, the rags get tired of them. I think we’re heading to that place where they are together and that’s their life and we better find someone new to create drama out of.”

Awww, they sound cozy. Bella and Edward for real!  Now somebody hand us a tissue.

SPOILER ALERT: Nine Reasons Eclipse Is The Best Twilight Flick Yet


Last night, FABlife editor Kate Spencer and I had the privilege of attending an advanced screening of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. Being the shameless Twi-hards that we are, we arrived to the theater unacceptably giddy for our age, even snapping a fangirl photo with a cardboard Edward Cullen. After being somewhat let-down by the first two adaptations and covering the sh*t out of Eclipse, we were really hoping the third movie lived up to its growing hype. Crappy wigs aside (ahem, Bella and Rosalie), David Slade‘s film did not disappoint! Here are nine reasons Eclipse knocks the other Twilight flicks out of the newborn-filled water.


1. Intense newborn beheading! Thought the only way to kill a vampire was by setting them on fire a la James? Wrong! Apparently you can also violently snap off their heads! During the ultimate Cullen-werewolf-newborn throw-down, heads were crackin’ off left and right! 


2. The Cullens toned down their cakey makeup. Something about our precious Edward looked “off” in New Moon. His handsome face looked flat and overly powdered. It looks like the makeup crew was revamped (pun intended) for Eclipse, because the Cullen clan was the perfect level of pasty. Read more…

Kristen Stewart’s New ‘Do: Love It Or Meh?

Do we love this? Do we? Do we? Kristen Stewart(photos) debuted this new look at a taping for the Late Show with David Letterman in New York City.  Apparently, Kristen’s new hair is for her role as MaryLou in a screen adaptation of Jack Kerouac‘s iconic novel On the Road.

Those are the facts, but they don’t help us in deciding what we think of it. It’s short, wavy, soft and strawberry-blondish. Or a light brown-tad-of-red? Or… light brown with hints of blond? GAH…we can’t even decide on a color. We’re so used to seeing our KStew rocking jet-black because she’s our fave goth-ish rockstar. But at the same time, her skin is flawless and her make-up is aces. And she’s still the same person underneath the follicles. So yes… it’s growing on us already. What say you? Comments away!

Our 11 Most Epic Moments From The Eclipse Red Carpet

You guys. YOU GUYSSSSSS! The Eclipse premiere is officially over, and we’re soothing our broken heart with some In N’ Out as we sit here reflecting on the night that was. Before we recap our 11 Most Epic Moments From The Eclipse Red Carpet, let us set the stage for you. We got to the Nokia Theater at 2PM, up-do secured on our head with 108 bobby pins, decked out in a wrinkled Old Navy dress and Haviana flip flops. We never did switch into our heels, because it wouldn’t be fair to dwarf Taylor Lautner on his big day (nor would it be fair to our feet).

We hung out at press check in with the lovely gals from Twilightish and Team Twilight until we finally made it to our spot on the red carpet, directly across from a group of Wolf Pack lovers who howled every time anyone wolf-related was mentioned. It got old fast but you know, they camped out for 4 days to earn the right to howl at the Eclipse premiere…more power to them. We were hoping one of them would imprint on us, but alas – they were saving themselves for BooBoo Stewart.

From that moment on, the red carpet only got wilder, weirder and more wonderfully insane. Behold our 11 Most Epic Moments From The Eclipse Red Carpet. Every single one of these things is true – we’ve got the video above as proof. Awkward, awkward proof.

11. Meeting the world’s horniest Twilight fans. We get it. They’re hot. Yes, we want to spoon with Robert Pattinson while catching up on Modern Family too. But we met some of the most x-rated Twi-fans in the world on the red carpet, with the signage to prove it. We chatted with one girl who referenced Rob and her “itching ovaries” and another who wanted to do illegal things to Kellan Lutz that involved whips and whipped cream. We’re not saying Twilight fans need to get laid (we think they got that covered),  just that we’re jealous of they people they’re doing it with because you know there are feathers and broken beds involved.

Eclipse Cast Predicts Next Big Sexy Monster Trend

We polled the experts – the Eclipse cast and a few of their close personal red carpet pals – about what they think the next big sexy, supernatural-y monster trend is going to be and we’ve got their ridiculous (and ridiculously adorable) answers above. Yes, we hate to even imagine a world without Edward Cullen, but we also can’t deny the truth – vampires and werewolves have almost jumped the shark. By the time Breaking Dawn Part 2 rolls around in 2012 Taylor Lautner will be dating Miley Cyrus, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart will have a couple of kids and Peter Facinelli will be President. They’ll be over slicing their eyes up with red contact lenses and bathing in white make up and we’ll be forced to move on. Can someone pass us our box of Twilight-themed tissues? We, uh, have something in our eye. Okay, both eyes. Fine! They’re tears.

Face it, Twi-hards – all vampy things must come to an end…except eternal life. Check out the cast’s predictions – and our ridiculous red carpet hairdo – above.


Robsten: Keepin’ It Casual And Cute As Ever At Eclipse After Party


After kung-fu gripping each other as they made their way down the scream and flash-filled red carpet, Robert Pattinson (photos) and Kristen Stewart (photos) looked relaxed and giddy at the after party. In true KStew form, she swapped her pumps and mini skirt for jeans and sneakers the first chance she got – and we love her 10X more for it. Needless to say, she looked just as adorable in her casual wear as her glamorous red, er, black carpet duds. 

Much to our delight, the blissful pair made zero effort to squash rumors of their romance as they leaned into each other and posed for the paps. See Robsten enjoying the party below with cast mates Taylor Lautner, Dakota Fanning, and Nikki Reed.

The premiere may be over, but there’s still plenty of Twilight coverage to tide over the hardest of Twi-fans ’til the 30th. Tomorrow night is “Twilight Night,” when MovieFone will be sponsoring screenings of the first two chapters of The Twilight Saga in cities across the country, with cast appearances and fun activities. Don’t wanna leave your couch? Watch their live stream starting at 10PM EST.


Robert Pattinson Fully Morphs Into Morrissey At Eclipse Premiere


Robert Pattinson and Morrissey: Separated at birth! Are we right or are we right? RPatzz has been vaguely reminding us of some God-like celebrity from another era. But we couldn’t put our finger on it — until now. The bouffant hair. The English charm. The pronounced jawline and the well-endowed eyebrows. Come on! They’re practically twins. Rob’s  purple suede jacket at the Twilight Eclipse premiere reminded us of the album cover for Morrissey’s  You Are The Quarry (note the similar duds). Is RPatzz intentionally modeling himself after Morrissey?

Either way, Rob’s striking similarity to Morrissey leads us to two predictions.  1) That Robert Pattinson’s career will be extended at least two decades by the fandom of Mexicans, probably thanks to his near pompadour.  And 2) That Robert Pattinson is a shoo-in to play Morrissey in what we’re guessing is an inevitable Hollywood biopic. More pics after the jump …
