First we had the bountiful gift of Kristen Stewart‘s ubiquitous Sundance presence -- and the awards and appearances are going to keep rolling in before ‘The Twilight Saga’ trots out the actress and her costar Robert Pattinson in support of June’s ‘Eclipse.’

Last night it was the U.K.'s version of the Academy Awards, the BAFTAs, that awarded Stewart the Orange Rising Star award

Although her acceptance speech has drawn mixed reviews, Stewart looked adorable in a white mini and Roger Vivier pumps. Her pal Pattinson wasn’t half bad either, in head-to-toe Gucci. He presented the prize for best screenplay, his signature north-pointing hair replaced with a gelled down ‘do.

The pair didn’t walk the carpet together but were spotted getting chummy at the Grey Goose after-party at the swank Grosvenor House hotel.

Not surprising. They’re usually more comfortable being together in Rob’s native U.K. -- like their quality time over New Year’s.
