Twilight star Kristen Stewart transforms with contact lenses

By Emily Tait

Twilight fans have been waiting patiently for the final film adaptation of the blood-sucking series to hit the big screens, and the wait is almost over, with new screens from the film revealing star Kristen Stewart transforming into a vampire for the first time.

After marrying Robert Pattinson's Edward Cullen, Stewart's character Bella becomes a vampire herself – a look which required the use of coloured contact lenses and other effects to achieve.

To relocate the pale, red-eyed look that Patterson has sported throughout the series, Stewart had to undergo a lengthy process that involved having her face heavily made up with white fountain, and red contact lenses inserted.

Early screens reveal that she also had prosthetic fangs inserted so that she could truly resemble a creature of the night, and fans are unlikely to be disappointed by Stewarts's efforts to do Stephenie Meyer's female protagonist justice.

The fifth and final instalment in the Twilight series – Breaking Dawn: Part 2 - will be released in November.
