Portland style, shopping, trends.
Regardless of your opinion on the worldwide tween phenom known as “Twilight” (personally, we’re on team “True Blood”), chances are you or someone you know will want to sink your teeth into the “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” events taking place at Nordstrom in Downtown Portland. Even better, you might get some up close and personal vampire action with Twilight cast member Cameron Bright!
In order to guarantee some face time (and bragging rights!) with the cute young actor (he’s also been in “X-Men: The Last Stand,” “Thank You for Smoking” and the film gem “Juno”), you need to stop by Nordstrom to pick up a VIP Pass starting at 8 a.m. this Saturday, June 19. The passes will secure spots for 200 customers to come back on Saturday, June 26 and have their photo taken with Bright, who plays the vampire Alex and twin brother to Dakota Fanning’s character in the series.
Nordstrom is doing a great job keeping up with all the “Twilight” mania, launching an exclusive clothing and cosmetics collection inspired by the Twilight films to promote the latest, “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” which opens in Portland theaters on Wednesday, June 30.
Nordstrom’s Twilight collection is based on the style of the film’s two lead female characters, Bella and Alice. Pieces include screened tees and hoodies, fashion tops, mini skirts, dresses, skinny jeans and cardigans ranging in price from $30-$58. The cosmetics line, called Luna Twilight, features the super popular Twlight Lip Venom (below right).
Win “Eclipse” movie passes! Nordstrom also is holding a contest you can enter for a chance to win 10 movie passes for you and your friends for a special screening of “The Twilight Saga: New Moon,” followed by an advance screening of “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” on Saturday, June 29. See Nordstrom Official Rules for details on how to enter.
By the way, if all of Nordstrom’s vampy fashion and beauty paraphernalia isn’t quite enough to satisfy your bloodlust, they’re also selling exclusive life-sized cutouts of the most popular Twilight characters. But, uh, that might be taking things a little too far. (Not that we’re judging, we’re still waiting for our Colin Firth cutout to arrive in the mail).
