'Twilight' stars attend charity screening in Tenn.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - November 18, 2009

The 19-year-old star told The Knoxville News Sentinel that she brought two fancy dresses, but they didn't seem to appropriate for the Tuesday night screening benefiting the philanthropic organization Variety of Eastern Tennessee.

Minutes before walking out before a crowd of hundreds of fans, she changed into a simple black-and-white strapless dress.

The appearance by Stewart and co-star, 17-year-old Taylor Lautner, raised a little more than $440,000 for the charity.
