New Moon: Exclusive Behind-the-Scenes Secrets!

The Star-Crossed Lovers’ Style

1. EDWARD’S TWI-LIGHTS: Colorist Stuart Gavert of Gavert Atelier salon in Beverly Hills offers clients the same low-maintenance highlights he gave Robert Pattinson for New Moon. But you don’t have to be a guy to pull off the look—90210 star AnnaLynne McCord recently popped in to boost her blond tresses with a set of Twi-lights.
2. BELLA’S RING: Our heroine’s moonstone ring “is a carryover from the first film,” says wardrobe stylist Tish Monaghan. “The props department had it copied—there were three of them.”
3. STYLISH SHEETS: Bella’s comforter set is from Target’s Modern Home collection. While the exact pattern is sold out—though one enterprising eBay auctioneer has it up for bids—a similar style is available at Target stores.

The Look of the Volturi

1. CONTACTS: Special effects designer Cristina Patterson Ceret hand-painted each set of the contact lenses worn by the Volturi. She has also created ocular illusions for films like Memoirs of a GeishaSuperman Returnsand the upcoming Alice in Wonderland.
2. NOT-SO-BASIC-BLACK FASHION: “I carefully color graded the shades of black on the characters in the chamber to show the ascent of power, with Jane [Dakota Fanning] and the other leaders being the darkest shade of all,” says Monaghan. “Jane wears a custom cloak that is sweetness and sinister combined.”

New Moon: Exclusive Behind-the-Scenes Secrets! - Jacob's Transformation

Jacob’s Transformation

1. TINY TEES: “Jacob [Taylor Lautner] was supposed to have grown taller and reallyfilled out, so we tailored all of the T-shirts he wore to make it seem like he was busting out of them,” says Monaghan. For added effect, Lautner wore lifts in his shoes to exaggerate the height difference between Jacob and Bella.
2. TRAINING REGIMEN: “I hit the gym, got myself a personal trainer and started eating a lot,” Lautner told us about becoming the bigger, buffer Jacob. “I had to be eating a minimum of 4,000 calories a day, so my trainer was always bringing me snacks.” He also did strength-training exercises in his downtime on set.
