Twilight author Stephenie Meyer has a new movie – and an even more dramatic new look!
Wearing a floral dress, a black cardigan and bold red lipstick, Meyer, 39, showed off her dramatic weight loss at Tuesday's Hollywood premiere of The Host, based on her 2008 science-fiction romance novel.
"It's kind of an alien love story," director Andrew Niccol has told PEOPLE.

Those pillow-biting sex scenes are about to get even hotter now that Kristen Stewart's onscreen alter ego Bella Swan is a full-blown, cold-blooded vampire in the final installment of the Twilight saga.
But if it were up to Robert Pattinson, who plays Bella's husband Edward Cullen, the bedroom action would get even wilder.
"I would put [the sex scene] the last day of the schedule," he told BBC Radio 1 of his fantasy turn in the director's chair. "[I'd] say, 'Listen, I've got to have a closed set. It's really, really important. No one can see the monitors or anything,' and then just put like a walrus in or something."

When Breaking Dawn: Part 2 opens this week, Ashley Greene hopes fans can concentrate on the big screen action – and forget about the off-screen drama surrounding the film's two main stars.
Of course, over the last several months Twi-hards have been enthralled with the ups and downs of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson's all-too-real breakup due to her cheating scandal and eventual reconciliation.
Asked if she thinks audiences will be affected by the couple's issues, Greene, 25, tells Seventeen, "I don’t know. Hopefully, it won’t taint it and people will still be able to enjoy the movie. I think a lot of people see us as our characters; I really want them to still be able to do that."

Kristen Stewart is not particularly sentimental about wrapping up years of playing Bella Swan in the Twilight series – but she is saving a few souvenir items from the films.
"I kept the rings. The rings are really important to me," Stewart said in Beverly Hills at Thursday's press day for Breaking Dawn: Part 2, which opens Nov. 16.
One of the baubles comes from when Bella's "mother gives her a moon ring in the beginning," says Stewart. "It fully and completely reminds me of [Twilight director] Catherine Hardwicke."

It was Ashley Greene's time to shine recently, at West Hollywood hotspot Chateau Marmont, where the Twilight star was celebrated for being on the cover of Nylon magazine's denim issue, wearing jean Element Eden "Idol" shorts.
Joined by other folks, including Chord Overstreet, Brent Bolthouse, stylist Johnny Wujek and the magazine's Editor-in-Chief Marvin Scott Jarrett, the actress "seemed in great spirits," an onlooker tells PEOPLE, adding, "She was mingling with guests."
Attendees at the fancy dinner fête were offered wedge salad, steak, fries, grilled branzino and corn polenta. And although the meal had bottles of vodka flowing, a different source says, "Ashley was not seen drinking."
Greene happily discussed fashion with media who stopped her for an interview, but questions related to the scandal between her costars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart were not allowed by the actress's publicist.

The show must go on for Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson.
The Breaking Dawn: Part 2 costars – and exes – who are barely speaking following Stewart's recent cheating scandal with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, are still scheduled to join the rest of their cast to promote the final film in the Twilight saga.
"While it is studio policy not to comment on the personal lives of actors, Summit is moving full steam ahead and looking forward to this November's opening of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 2," Nancy Kirkpatrick, the studio's president of worldwide marketing tells Entertainment Weekly in a statement.

After meeting and greeting throngs of fans waiting for hours outside the San Diego Convention Center, the stars of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz, Nikki Reed and more, headed to Hard Rock Hotel's Float Lounge to party.
While some (like Peter Facinelli and new dad Jackson Rathbone) skipped the red carpet, newlyweds Reed and hubby Paul McDonald walked together, and the former Idol contestant waited patiently, sipping a drink while his wife did interviews. When she finished, he snaked his arm around her waist, then Reed gave her hubby's butt a little pinch before heading inside the party, where the couple mingled with fellow guests.
Lutz seemingly started the night with dessert: he was spotted snacking on frozen yogurt inside a VIP cabana, though he later grabbed a slider from a waitress's tray.

Now that Kristen Stewart's Twilight alter-ego Bella Swan is a full-blown bloodsucker – with perfectly pale skin and red eyes, of course – all should be fang-tastic for the Cullen clan.
But in the latest teaser for the saga's final installment, Breaking Dawn: Part 2, released Tuesday, Bella and Edward (played by Robert Pattinson, 26) are forced to take on the challenges of parenthood and the bossy Volturi coven.
In the 10-second clip, fans get a glimpse of vampire-human hybrid Renesmee, whose birth played out in the last film in grueling detail. (The older Renesmee will be played by model-turned-child actress Mackenzie Foy.)
