Nikki Reed joined Ashley Greene on the red carpet for ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2′ VIP Comic-Con Celebration at the Hard Rock Hotel in San Diego, California, yesterday.

We don’t often see Etro on the red carpet – I’m guessing that’s because stars aren’t so keen on their difficult-to-pull-off prints – but Nikki manages to make this Spring 2011 look work for her.

Her dress, which was more like a long top on the runway, reaches just above the knee in her much longer version.

The part gold chainmail, part black-and-white beaded striped cocktail dress was styled with a black-and-gold trimmed python clutch, Melinda Maria ring and simple black peep-toes.

On this occasion the simple heels are perfect for a look with so much detail.

Should Nikki have gone shorter, or is this the perfect length?
