This August Vanity Fair photograph for a feature on the women of Twilight: Eclipse reminds me of that American Beauty overhead shot of Mena Suvari on a bed of red rose petals. With the exception of blonde Dakota Fanning in the middle, they're fairly unrecognizable with their 40s crimson gashes.
In the behind-the-scenes video below, Fanning cops to being sweet 16. She and New Moon and Eclipse co-star Kristen Stewart became best friends on The Runaways. Nikki Reed says the Twilight books "suck you in," without irony. Julia Jones plays werewolf Lea Clearwater. She does have a great head of hair. Bryce Dallas Howard--who has finally shed her baby fat to be as rail thin as every other starlet-- plays an "evil vampire." She used to intern at Vanity Fair. For once, Vanity Fair vet Stewart got the day off.
