Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, and J.K. Rowling Bid Farewell to Harry Potter With Their London Fans
Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, and the extended cast of Harry Potter came together in London's Trafalgar Square today to premiere the final installment of the saga, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. Emma arrived in a beautiful floor-length Oscar de la Renta gown and raced over to greet fans and sign autographs before taking her place on the red carpet. Her best friends in the film, Rupert and Daniel, followed closely behind, also thanking fans and posing for pictures. The principle cast took the stage with J.K. Rowling and spoke to the audience of millions watching across the globe. Daniel first thanked fans and the cast and went on to say, "This isn't the end as fans will carry this story with them through the rest of their lives."
Emma then took to the podium and professed her love for her costars and especially Rupert and Daniel, saying, "Dan didn't get lucky, you were and are the perfect Harry and will be forever" and thanked "Rupert for making me laugh, I'll miss you so much," then broke down into tears before thanking J.K. for playing such a "great role model" in her life. Rupert was the final of the trio to take the mic, saying a simple "I love you" to the fans and crew and thanking J.K for everything she's done "for ginger people." It was a day full of mixed emotions for all of those involved with the franchise, and J.K. even joked, "I should write another one!" before wrapping up the event with her final words, saying, "Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home."

Kristen Stewart bared those legs once again this morning when she stepped out for the Burberry show during London Fashion Week. She also showed off her stems in another short dress at last night's Elle Style Awards, where Kristen was named Woman of the Year. Joining Kristen today were fellow fashion lovers like Mary-Kate Olsen, Kate Hudson, and her New Moon costar Jamie Campbell Bower, who brought girlfriend Bonnie Wright. Sunday's BAFTAs gave Kristen another opportunity to wear a minidress, while fellow attendee Robert Pattinson stuck with a classic tux. The pair attended an afterparty together, and according to The Sun — therefore, take with a grain of salt — he confirmed their romance to a friend.

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart kept their distance on the red carpet at last night's BAFTA Awards in London, but they moved on to the official afterparty together with their fellow Twilight star Anna Kendrick. There was some celebrating for the friends to do, as Kristen took home the evening's Rising Star award and thanked all the Twilight fans for the honor. Robert also had a moment on stage presenting during the show — check out the video. They were joined by other winners like Carey Mulligan and Colin Firth for the bash at the Grosvenor House Hotel, but it was just Robert and Kristen who were spotted heading home in the same car. It's the first time since their New Year's getaway in England that we've seen the lovebirds together, and hopefully there's even more to come before she heads back to the US.
