All eyes were on Chloe Grace Moretz at Wednesday's If I Stay premiere.
The film's leading lady arrived at Hollywood's TCL Chinese Theatre wearing a strapless Schiaparelli Spring 2014 Couture dress and Van Cleef & Arpels jewels. Though she's been in show business for years, Chloë still gets "excited" for red carpet events. "You work so hard in these little dark rooms for months on end, and you're freezing and you're crying and you're doing all these emotional things, and then, you know, a year later you show up at these premieres and it's this amazing homecoming," Chloë, 17, told E! News.
The actress added, "It's really just a beautiful experience."
Chloë's rumored boyfriend, Brooklyn Beckham, showed up to share that experience with her. Though they didn't pose for pictures together on the red carpet, a source tells E! News that David Beckham and Victoria Beckham's 15-year-old son "missed Chloë so much when he was at sleep-away camp." In fact, the California-based teen "cut his stay short and came home early" to spend more time with the actress.
"He is planning on making the most of his time here, staying behind when the family heads back to the U.K. to start school," the source says of Brooklyn. "He has a bit more time off before [school and soccer training begin], so he wants to continue to soak in the sun, skateboard, Soul Cycle, see movies and hang out with Chloë."

Chloë, no doubt, appreciated Brooklyn's presence.
"It's about the support of your family and your friends and your co-stars," the starlet told E! News. "It's really one big huge congratulatory experience to kind of welcome everyone back into our little circle."
If I Stay is in theaters Friday.
