Just a boy at the time – Sharkboy in fact – 16-year-old Lautner was all bubbly charm at Twilight's Nov. 17, 2008, opening in L.A. But after a battle to retain the role of Jacob – and 26 lbs. of muscle gain – he left his baby face behind in favor of a more mature look and enviable hard body, which he displayed at The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 London premiere on Nov. 16, 2011.

The 'Bella' of the ball, when Stewart made her first red carpet appearance for Twilight in Dec. 2008 at the film's London premiere, she sported a one-shoulder, prom-like dress befit her 18 years of age. Fast-forward three years, and the little known star has become one of Hollywood's highest-paid actresses, and regularly dons couture like the Roberto Cavalli gown she wore to the U.K. premiere of Breaking Dawn – Part 1.

While he's kept his signature British wit and charm, Twilight's swoon-worthy star has developed into a dashing leading man, trading the disheveled hair and wrinkly suit he wore in 2008 at the movie's L.A. premiere for a tailored charcoal ensemble, trimmed locks and sexy brood at the 2011 Breaking Dawn – Part 1 premiere in London.

What a difference four years makes! When Rathbone made his Twilight red carpet debut in 2008, he was a fresh-faced unknown with an unassuming smile. In the years since, he's fronted a rock band, the now defunct 100 Monkeys, and cultivated his greatest accessory – an outside-the-box attitude he flaunted at the L.A. Breaking Dawn – Part 1 premiere on Nov. 14, 2011, with a red velour suit and arched eyebrow.

When Reed hit the red carpet in Nov. 2008 for Twilight's opening night, she showed off girl-next-door sweetness – a contrast to her diva-esque onscreen alter ego Rosalie – with a knee-length floral frock. Compare that with her 2011 showing at a Breaking Dawn – Part 1 screening, when the actress went full-on glam, pulling her hair back in a slick pony and playing peek-a-boo in a slitty dress with side and back cut-outs.

After four films, Lutz's character seems to have worn off on him, turning the star's 2008 laid-back style into something decidedly darker. For Breaking Dawn – Part 1's Nov. 2011 premiere in Los Angeles, he sported an all-black, three-piece suit that played up his brunette do – another Emmett Cullen influence.

A little old Hollywood glamour has gone a long way for Reaser, who supported Twilight at its 2008 L.A. premiere in an above-the-knee, belted wrap dress Esme would approve of. But for Breaking Dawn – Part 1, the actress revealed her inner vamp, walking the 2011 red carpet in a shimmering, body-hugging gown with plunging neckline.

Did he go shopping with Jackson? Following a preppy showing at Twilight's Nov. 2008 debut, the man behind Bella's high school pal Mike Newton proved he's come into his own at Breaking Dawn – Part 1's West Coast premiere, pairing a velvet blazer with a plaid bow tie that put his personality on display.
