'Twilight' Did You Knows: Bella's Wedding Dress


Hey Twi-Hards, as most of you know, leading up to the premiere of Breaking Dawn Part 1, I had a weekly post titled "Twilight Did You knows." So when I found these awesome facts the beautiful dress we all wish we could have, I knew that I had to bring it back!

Did you know...

1. Carolina Herrera designed the dress exclusively for Breaking Dawn Part 1 based on input from Twilight author Stephenie Meyer and Breaking Dawn director Bill Condon. They chose from ten sketches that Carolina Herrera created.

2. The dress was made by hand by Ms. Herrera and four seamstresses, and took a total of six months to complete.

3. The dress was custom fit precisely for Kristen Stewart.

4. The dress was created from crepe satin and French Chantilly lace.

5. 152 buttons line the back of the dress.

6. There are 17 buttons on each sleeve.

7. Herrera designed the back to be a surprise, considering it romantic. I'd say it's a pretty dramatic reveal in the movie!

8. The dress will be in Carolina Herrera's 2012 collection and available at CHNY boutiques.

9. The estimated value of the dress is a whopping $35,000.

10. Alfred Angelo will be selling replicas of the dress starting at $799 if you want the look for less. Big spenders could even get one to be the belle of the ball for a Twilight Convention!
