InStyle invited some of our closest friends—Nikki Reed, Emilie de Ravin, Sophia Bush, Malin Akerman, and Erin Wasson included—to toast to the season at our annual Summer Soiree last night, held the London Hotel Rooftop in Los Angeles. “It is lovely,” Bush said of the atmosphere, which included a Gordon Ramsey-designed menu, Starbucks-infused drinks, and a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream bar. ”I mean, what can I get my hands on first? I try it all!” But there was something she had to do first: “I have a couple girlfriends [here] that I am going to hug. That is always the priority, hug the people I like.” Like Bush, the evening acted as a catch-up session, with the stars reminiscing about the days and nights that made summer 2012 unforgettable.

Kristen Stewart made a blink-and-you-missed-it appearance at the premiere of Robert Pattinson’s new movie, Remember Me, but his current co-stars were more than happy to dish on the gorgeous Brit when they hit the red carpet. “We were very professional,” said Emilie de Ravin of the rumors that the pair started a real-life romance while filming on location in New York City last summer. And how does the Australian actress explain the duo’s onscreen chemistry during their kissing scenes? “It was just acting…but I wasn’t complaining!” de Ravin laughed. Pattinson’s other leading lady, 11-year-old Peyton List, happily admitted that her co-star was totally crush-worthy. “I don’t have posters of him on my wall, but I did have a crush on him,” she said. “I’ve read all the Twilight books and seen both the movies. I’m Team Edward!“
