11:10 That’s a wrap, folks. Thanks for joining us on our journey to the “New Moon”!
11:08 The crowd is chanting “TAYLOR! TAYLOR! TAYLOR!” as the carpet winds to a close.
11:07 Taylor is wearing Calvin Klein. Kristen is wearing Oscar de la Renta.
11:06 Taylor is telling Larry he’s “sticking to the diet and trying to get into the gym as much as possible,” but it’s been hard with everything going on lately.
11:05 Kristen confirmed what Joan told us, by the way, that she is definitely doing her own singing in “The Runaways” movie.
11:04 “We put a lot of hard work into this film, and I’m dying for it to come out!” SO ARE WE TAYLOR!
11:03 Kristen was chattier than usual. What’s the best thing about being her? She says she knows she’ll never get to experience anything like this (pointing to the fans) no matter what kind of movies she’s in. “Definitely this is the coolest thing.”
11:01 Kristen is talking to Larry about how great it is to have Taylor here after all the questions about whether he’d return. “I’m so proud of him … I think he’s the most centered of anybody here.”
11:00 Here she is! Wait… she’s taking pictures with those three sneaky fans!
10:58 A security guard is checking their credentials… again!
10:57 Meanwhile, Taylor is taking pictures with three sneaky young fans who somehow have credentials.
10:57 She was headed our way but then her folks realized she passed E!. She was almost to our platform then redirected with an about-face to our neighbors.
10:56 An excited and hurried publicist just ran over and asked, “Will you guys be ready for Kristen?” HECK YEAH!!!!!
10:52 Kellan just walked by with his arm around a fan wearing a “Nutz For Lutz” t-shirt. Pretty sure he pulled her out of the crowd!
10:51 We can see Kristen! Gorgeously porcelain.
10:48 Yup, It looks like Taylor is getting closer.
10:45 It’s quiet at our end of the carpet as we wait for Kristen and Taylor!
10:39 Adam Shankman is telling Larry about his involvement in the movie version of the “Rock Of Ages” musical, which was just announced in the trades.
10:35 Robert is wearing Gucci, by the way. Wherever he is now.
10:33 And he’s gone! Dragged away by a publicist as quickly as he arrived.
10:32 What’s the best part about being Robert Pattinson? He laughs and thinks for a minute. “I couldn’t really tell you,” he says with his wide smile. What’s the worst part? “You’ve got to work every single day.” Which he hasn’t gotten used to.
10:31 Robert just said he loves how our mics are always “scuffed.” Uh, thanks? Haha!
10:30 “Two questions. Nothing personal, please.” The order has been decreed. We’re close. He’s here!
10:29 Our busy platform has ground to a halt in anticipation.
10:28 We are all frozen waiting for Rob. It’s pretty funny.
10:27 C’mon dude… We can’t wait to see you!
10:26 Robert is making time for a few smaller outlets before he comes over to us. He hasn’t forgotten the little people.
10:26 Robert is talking to E! right next to us. Next stop… MTV, son!
10:25 Let’s all pause for a moment to ponder how kickass it is that Kevin named his daughter after the Joker’s radical cartoon sidekick.
10:24 Kevin Smith is walking the carpet with his daughter Harley Quinn as Michael Sheen comes on up to talk to us.
10:23 Dakota is wearing a black Valentino. She’s also wearing a really big ring that looks kind of like the ones that allow vampires to walk in daylight in “The Vampire Diaries.” Hmmmmm. Her D&G shoes made her really tall!
10:22 I wonder if Armani would make a suit like his small enough for a gummy bear. Speaking of small, Dakota Fanning is growing up but she’s still so cute and little. And here she comes! She’s only got time for two questions so let’s hope Larry makes ’em good. Aw, who are we kidding? He always does.
10:21 What smell drives Kellan as crazy as the smell of blood drives his character? “The smell of gummy bears.”
10:20 Kellan just called the crowd “amazing,” but we think his pocket square is pretty amazing, too. Just sayin’…
10:19 Kellan is on our platform!
10:18 Ashley said she just got an email saying that “we broke the presale” record. She definitely predicts the opening weekend will be “bigger” than Twilight.
10:16 Ashley Greene’s red, flowing Prabal Gurung dress requires an extra person to help her walk the carpet. It’s worth it. She’s also wearing Brian Atwood shoes, but we can’t see them. Accessories: Loree Radkin jewelry and a Jimmy Choo clutch.
10:15 Kristen Stewart has arrived!
10:14 The “ROBERT! ROBERT! ROBERT! ROBERT!” chant just went off. It… Was… Loud!
10:13 ROBERT is definitely here and inching closer to where we’re at!
10:12 Edi Gathegi and his very cool gray/ black/red Moschino suit just left as Nikki Reed heads our way. She’s in a soft comfy looking Burberry with Christian Louboutin heels.
10:07 Chris says he thought about publishing a book, but decided against it because by a month by now he’ll be sick of talking about this movie. He may give some stuff like that for free at some point if it’s OK with the studio.
10:05 Chris Weitz just stepped on our platform wearing Tom Ford.
10:04 Word is that Taylor is here!
10:01 Peter’s best accessory is the adorable little girl holding his hand — his daughter
10:00 Peter Facinelli is saying this is easier to enjoy this time because he knew what to expect. It can all be pretty overwhelming!
9:57 And it was for Kellan! (We thought maybe Robert was here, it’s almost movie time, where is he?!?)
9:57 There is a HUGE CHEER that just passed through EVERYWHERE like a wave!!!
9:56 How did Joan react the first time she saw Kristen dressed up a her? “Big smile, man!”
9:55 Joan just confirmed that Kristen will “DEFINITELY” be doing her own singing in the Runaways movie!!
9:54 Joan’s biker boots would put Billy Idol to shame. And they even have a little sparkle, Edward Cullen style!
9:53 Joan decided to see “Twilight” after hearing Kristen was cast as her in “The Runaways” movie. She “really enjoyed it” and found it “entertaining.”
9:52 Joan Jett is headed up our steps. Holy crap she looks cool.
9:51 50 is saying “maybe in the future” in regard to contributing to one of the soundtracks.
9:50 50’s wearing John Varvatos. He’s also wearing a very large pinky ring.
9:49 Chaske Spencer says “at the end of the day I’m just some lucky guy.” He says various members of the wolf pack are betting “dinner” with each other over box office predictions. And here’s 50 Cent! He’s still here! And shook hands with Chaske on his way up.
9:46 Word has it 50 Cent was here but may have already left.
9:45 Kiowa’s blue tie is matched by his blue cuff links. Now THAT is style, people.
9:44 Jennie Garth is here. (“Dun-dun-dun-dun, dun-dun-dun-dun: cha! cha!” – that’s our phonic approximation of one of the greatest theme songs ever… from “Beverly Hills, 90210” people!)
9:43 Larry just complimented Kiowa Gordon on his Hugo Boss suit. And rightfully so!
9:41 “KELLAN! KELLAN! KELLAN!” the chants over yonder are THUNDEROUS!
9:40 Charlie just described shooting Eclipse as “a magical experience.”
9:39 Our second shiny black suit of the night is being worn by Charlie Bewley (Demetri). The suit is by Jean Paul Gaultier.
9:38 Kristen P is wearing Marciano.
9:36 Kristen Prout, who’s in “Eclipse,” says Jackson Rathbone did a great job riding his horse.
9:33 “There’s a lot of cuties out here. I’m a single guy!” insisted Bronson. You heard it here first, ladies.
9:32 Bronson Pelletier literally came BOUNCING onto our platform, exclaiming, “MTV! Wassup!”
9:31 It turns out they are his own line! “Cameron Bright by Ula” Wow!
9:30 Ladies and gentlemen, Cameron Bright is officially wearing the coolest shoes we’ve seen on a dude tonight.
9:29 “These films are just getting bigger, better and more exciting,” says Alex, while telling us about the “fast-paced” fight scenes.
9:28 Alex Meraz (pictured above) is also wearing a D&G suit — popular choice tonight!
9:24 We just asked Colossus (er, Daniel Cudmore) to stand down a step on our platform. Otherwise he’d be too tall for our camera angle while we interview him. For real!
9:21 Michael Welch, a.k.a. Mike Newton, is wearing a sharp looking Theory suit. Tonight will be the first time he’s seen “New Moon, “just like the last premiere was the first time he saw “Twilight.” He’s talking about how great it was to meet and work with Taylor. “He’s a really good guy, man.”
9:18 Emma Roberts said she’s read the books. Good girl!
9:16 Booboo Stewart, who’s in “Eclipse,” is telling us how amazing and incredible it is that the fans camp out for days.
9:15 Melissa doesn’t know if she’ll be writing the fourth movie yet but she’d be honored to do it.
9:14 “New Moon” screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg (pictured above) is telling Larry she tries to shut out the rest of the world when she’s writing.
9:13 OK GO were all wearing Italian brand (fitting, eh?) Costume National.
9:11 Two more fans snuck between our platform and E!’s. Security just kicked them out, too. Yikes.
9:10 “This is nuts, this is incredible!” Damian (from OK GO) is saying. “Twilight is for children of all ages.” Right on Damian!
9:09 We love you Chris Walla! And these fans love your music even if they don’t recognize you as quickly as they should. Continuing on our music theme (hey, we ARE MTV!), the gentlemen of OK GO are up here now.
9:08 Gil, for those of you not sure at home, plays Billy Black (Jacob’s papa).
9:07 Gil Birmingham just left our platform and now Chris Walla from Death Cab For Cutie is joking about the less than crazy response he got when stepped out of the car.
9:04 Justin hasn’t seen “New Moon” yet. Tonight will be his first time!
9:03 Security is kicking out some fans who snuck behind our platform. Sorry girls!
9:02 Justin Chon is talking to Larry right now! And looking dashing in a “Reservoir Dogs”-looking Dolce & Gabbana suit.
8:58 Attention “X-Men” fans (like us!): Daniel Cudmore, a.k.a. the mighty metal mutant Colossus, is here!
8:56 As Kevin points out, “Twilight” isn’t just for teenage girls. “It appeals to everybody… The books are romantic and epic, everything.”
8:55 Kevin just called this premiere “unreal. It’s massive.” (He should just wait till “Glee” takes off even more!)
8:54 Another “Glee” cast member, Kevin McHale, is hanging with us now. He’s wearing a very shiny Top Man suit. Very friendly guy.
8:51 What’s Mark wearing? Black v-neck, jeans, sneakers … and his mohawk. Very red carpet casual cool.
8:48 Mark Salling from “Glee” is headed our way.
8:43 Richie Sambora is here. I wonder if he rode a steel horse.
8:39 Justine isn’t sure she’s in “Breaking Dawn” yet, but she has her fingers crossed she’ll be cast.
8:37 Justine Wachsberger, who plays Gianna in “New Moon,” is in a very pretty strapless green Issa dress with a Swarovski clutch. She’s telling Larry it was fun to play her character because she’s Italian (Justine grew up in France). She’s only in the movie briefly, but has a big part in the book.
8:35 Lykke Li said she’s “independent” — she can’t pick Team Edward or Team Jacob.
8:33 Lykke Li is on our platform in “stripper shoes from a store in London” (her words!), a very sheer black dress (vintage Jean Paul Gaultier) and an an Opening Ceremony jacket.
8:30 Julia (pictured above) looks absolutely stunning in a strapless dress by Norwegian designer Leila Hafzi
8:26 Michael Welch and Justin Chon have arrived.
8:24 Julia is telling Larry all about her character in “Eclipse”!
8:19 Julia Jones — who is in the wolf pack in “Eclipse” — is headed our way!
8:08 A radio station DJ is on a loudspeaker hyping the crowd now. Like we need it!
8:07 Also Joan Jett is on the tip sheet!
8:04 We can now confirm: Stephenie will be here tonight!!!!
8:01 We are taping down marks where the celebs will stand while we interview them. getting closer!
7:54 Reporters are showing up at the E! platform next to us. Once I accidentally called Guiliana Rancic “Guiliani.” She smiled warmly and said, “It happens.”
7:52 The fans just cheered for a celebrity arrival — Ryan Seacrest! He has now disappeared into his giant Lego lookalike booth.
7:50 Our own Larry Carroll has been asked to sign a few autographs. Seriously! We all love the fans intense love for Larry. You guys rule!
7:49 We were just told the fire marshall won’t let us off our little platform while things are happening. We’ve worked a lot of carpets and that is a very unusual instruction. This thing is GOING TO BE CRAZY!
7:47 Other than the increasingly sparse screams (seems like every news crew has gotten their requisite “everybody scream!” shots by now), it’s the calm before the storm. SO PUMPED! This thing is gonna go off soon.
7:45 Our handsome production manager is pretending to shoot reporter standups. He’s helping one of our camera guys figure out his shot. It doesn’t look nearly as weird as it sounds.
7:42 It’s surprisingly warm out still. Maybe Rob and Taylor will take their shirts off.
7:40 Red carpet placement FYI, we’re between E! and MySpace. Where the real party is at.
7:34 The soundtrack is currently cranking on the red carpet (though it’s hard to tell which song is playing!) and man, is it cool. Chop Shop has been killing with music supervision ever since “The OC.” From “Gossip Girl” to “90210” to the “Twilight” franchise, Alex and her team know how to pick ’em!
7:32 Director Chris Weitz’s publicist just asked if we want to talk to him later. Duh!
7:31 The Kiss FM booth looks like a giant rectangular soundproof Lego. Or a hall of mirrors at a carnival.
7:30 Kiss FM “On Air With Ryan Seacrest” has a soundproof booth. Great idea, but aren’t the deafening screams of the fans part of what makes tonight so memorable?
7:23 Larry just introduced the crew to Kaleb Nation from TwilightGuy.com — he’s great!
7:16 A list of the funniest (and more creative) sayings on fan posters: “Kellan makes good girls go bad” ; “From Coast To Coast we love the Cullens the most!”; “I wanna be a stupid lamb” ; “traveled from Florida to be dazzled” and OUR FAVORITE: “Jacob Black?I’d hit that. With a Volvo!”
7:12 It’s getting too dark to wear sunglasses. But plenty of media folks still are. You know who isn’t? THE FANS. They need to see everything!!
7:08 A fan definitely just yelled “I want to have Rob’s baby!” to a news camera. And now the cameraman is having her repeat it. Again. And Again.
7:07 Swarms of news cameras are walking up and down the carpet pointing their cameras at fans, knowing it’ll elicit some lively screams. Over and over and over, one after another, the cameras keep milking it and the fans don’t tire. And nothing’s happening yet!
