To be fair, it was mostly vamps, but not all vamps at the 2010 Teen Choice Awards. Look at the hosts: Glee studs AND Katy Perry, who visited various high-school stereotypes through the show. Cue a gazillion costume changes (we like geeky Katy the best). And watching them were young Hollywood’s finest, including Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, approximately 3 million peeps from Twilight, Megan Fox, Channing Tatum, Sandra Bullock, Selena Gomez, Leighton Meester, Ellen DeGeneras, David Beckham (wtf?), and The Kardashians. And my oh my, didn’t they look pretty? And some, well, didn’t.
Twilight: Eclipse is a summer blockbuster. The movie about vampires, wolves and virgins tallies up an impressive 175 million f**king dollars (?!) in merely 6 days since its release. Twitanic indeed. To celebrate this movie’s unbelievable success and the people that made it all possible, we bring you 50 Photos of Terrifying Twilight Fans. Get your Michael Jackson Thriller contacts on and enjoy.

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.

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…
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.
A couple days ago our editor Kate Spencer reported live from Tent City where over 7,000 Twi-hards awaited their chance to catch a glimpse of Rob Pattinson‘s luscious mop and Kristen Stewart‘s tiny bird legs at the premiere of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.
As we patrolled the live stream tonight for any sign of Robsten (photos), the deafening waves of shrieking girls only increased – we’re certain at times their anticipation caused them to yelp at passing production assistants. While we’re sure having gazillions of devoted (and we mean, devoted) fans is beyond flattering for probable-couple Rob and Kristen, there’s got to be moments of claustrophobia mixed in with those gracious autographs and fan pics. Fans of the Twilight franchise are an openly emotional kind, shamelessly making bite requests, and snapping thousands of blurred photos with their cell phones. (Disclaimer: We’re not denying we’d do/have already done any of these things.)
Maintaining a cheerful, grateful disposition amidst all the commotion cannot always be easy, and while Rob and Kristen seemingly pulled off another madhouse premiere tonight, there were some funny face-producing moments of them almost losing their sanity. But for each shot of Rob looking befuddled there were five of the pair gazing into each others’ eyes, smiling, and cracking each other up. Looks like our favorite secret lovers are more likely to breeze to Breaking Dawn than reach their breaking point.
In what many would consider a major red carpet faux pas, Twilight stars Dakota Fanning and Christian Serratos arrived to the Eclipse premiere in the same dangerously studded Louboutin peep-toes. While Fanning paired them with an expectedly girly Elie Saab dress, Serratos wore a corseted black dress with a full tulle skirt. Who wore the fierce footwear better? [Photos: Getty Images]
Two members of the Cullen clan arrived to the Eclipse premiere in decidedly non-gothic gowns – a recurring trend at Twilight premieres. Nikki Reed donned a blue feathered Marchesa dress that left little the imagination – lots of cleavage, leg, and back! Ashley Greene took the opposite route (suprise!), covering up in a mature gray floor-length frock by Alexis Mabille Couture. Which powdery look do you prefer? [Photos: Getty Images]
