Last night, Bono cohosted a Coachella party that drew stars ranging from John Legend to Joe Jonas. Bono's clothing company, Edun — which he cofounded with his wife Ali Hewson in 2005 — teamed up with Diesel to throw their Studio Africa soiree on the first official night of the 2013 festival. The brands launched the Studio Africa project this year as an effort to spotlight fashion, music, and other arts from the continent.
Solange Knowles played DJ for the night at yesterday evening's bash, and Congolese-Belgian musician Baloji performed for the crowd. While plenty of the attendees have a musical pedigree of their own, such as John, plenty of actors and other celebrities hit the party, which was held at a private estate in La Quinta, CA. John and his fiancée, Chrissy Teigen, were spotted hanging out with stylist Brad Goreski, while Kellan Lutz, Theresa Palmer, Joe Jonas, and Mad Men's Jessica Paré rounded out the VIP crowd. Check out our roundup of all the celebrities at Coachella to see all the stars who are in the desert for this year's festivities!

Fans of Twilight will finally get to see the whole saga comes to an end with this week's release of Breaking Dawn Part 2. But before you catch Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and the rest of the film's stars acting out the highly anticipated scenes, I thought it would be fun to take a look back at what the red-hot actors were doing before they were cast in the series. Some were unknown, others were child stars, so let's take a look back at their careers.
Stars came out for the gala opening night of The Book of Mormon in LA yesterday. Busy Philipps chose a floral dress for the special occasion while Zoe Saldana, fresh off promoting The Words, wore black Stella McCartney. Christina Hendricks was back on the West Coast after a visit to Toronto while Kellan Lutz popped up following multiple NY Fashion Week appearances. Viola Davis stood out in a purple look as she hit the red carpet alongside Malin Akerman, Shailene Woodley, Neil Patrick Harris, and Julie Bowen. Joy Bryant, whose Parenthood premiered on Tuesday, smiled big, as did Lisa Kudrow, Perrey Reeves, and Alicia Silverstone. The Broadway play is settling in Hollywood until the end of November, when it then moves on to a five-week engagement in San Francisco.
It's the last year at Comic-Con for the Twilight crew, and the Cullen family got their own press conference to talk about Breaking Dawn Part 2. Cast members Elizabeth Reaser, Jackson Rathbone, Ashley Greene, Peter Facinelli, Kellan Lutz, and Nikki Reed sat down to discuss their last film as the vampire clan. Like their costar Robert Pattinson mentioned during the other press conference, they had some funny ideas about a possible reboot, and they shared cute stories from their overall Twilight experience. Here's what they talked about:
On their character development over the course of the series:
Jackson Rathbone: "When we first see Jasper, he was kind of tweaker, like a heroin junkie going through withdrawals. He's like a guy on a diet seeing a bunch of donuts. [In Breaking Dawn Part 2] it's the first time we see Jasper at ease a little, but then all hell breaks loose.
Peter Facinelli: [joking] "In Twilight I started dying my hair blond, then wigs, and the wigs went through transformation. In Breaking Dawn it's longer."
Nikki Reed: "Rosalie finally smiles. . . . The audience roots for Rosalie a little more."
On the future of the series;
Jackson Rathbone: "Maybe they'll reboot it and call it The Amazing Twilight."
On the future of the cast:
ER: "I hope we're all healthy and nobody's on Celebrity Rehab."
Find out what else the cast spilled about, including what they're fans of, after the break.
The fun at Comic-Con kicked off last night with a special Breaking Dawn Part 2 party. Many of the film's stars, like Nikki Reed, an Oscar de la Renta-clad Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz, and Peter Facinelli, gathered at San Diego's Hard Rock Hotel for a VIP celebration with fans. Nikki, in Etro, had husband Paul McDonald on her arm, and Peter posed for photos with his big-screen wife, Elizabeth Reaser. Jackson Rathbone, who's a member of the Cullen clan, too, hit the red carpet just days after becoming a new dad. He and girlfriend Sheila Hafsadi welcomed a son, Monroe Jackson Rathbone VI, one week ago. There's more work in store for the Twilight clan today. They're expected at a press event this morning, hopefully along with the series' stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner. We're covering all the action in San Diego, so check back for news from the event and make sure to follow BuzzSugar on Twitter for even more.
Twilight will take over Comic-Con for a fourth and final time this year. The arrival of Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, and the rest of the cast will be bittersweet as they promote the final installment of the saga, Breaking Dawn Part 2. Before this year's festival kicks off in San Diego today, we're taking a look back at the adventures of Twilight at Comic-Con. The cast members made their first appearance in 2008, returned for New Moon promotions in 2009, and got back in the action in 2011 for Breaking Dawn Part 1.
