Girls Gone Wild at Arizona's 'New Moon' Premiere Party

Last night, hundreds of teenage girls, moms with wistful romantic longings and a handful of dudes (most of whom were clearly dragged there by little sisters or girlfriends) gathered in Surprise for the Twifans.com and CullenBoysAnonymous "New Moon Rising Over Arizona" party and midnight premiere of the next film in the Twilight saga.

They were actually screaming Kiowa (KAI-uh-wuh), for Kiowa Gordon, the 19-year-old Cave Creek resident who plays wolf pack member Embry Call in New Moon. Gordon arrived early in the day for brunch and meet-and-greets with a few select fans, and "re-arrived" in a white limo to walk the red carpet a little before 8 p.m.  

Gordon was accompanied by mother, brothers and an entourage of security and personal staff. He spent so long mingling with fans and posing for photos that it took nearly a half hour for the entourage to get to the small stage set up outside the theater. How is it to be the sibling of a Twilight star? "It's exhausting," said one of his brothers. "But Kiowa always talks about his fans." Mom chimed in that she'd seen the movie three times already and "it was awesome."

Poor Kiowa's hand was probably falling off after three hours of autograph signing. But at least he had caffeine.
