The Duchess of Cambridge was not the only celebrity bride that everyone was talking about last year. The wedding of Bella Swan, the star of the fictional Twilight series, also caused widespread interest in 2011. Bella’s bridal gown designed by Carolina Herrera definitely took everyone’s breath away. The dress donned a combination of crepe satin and French Chantilly lace with a sheer oval-shaped back. The 152 buttons lining the back of the dress along with the 17 additional buttons on each sleeve completed the romantic look of Bella’s bridal gown.
In a recent interview with Town & Country weddings, Carolina Herrera described actress Kristen Stewart’s first reaction to the bridal gown. Herrera stated, “We did three fittings. When she initially put on the dress and looked over her shoulder into the mirror, she was very moved…In that moment she was not an actress or a character in a film but instead a bride, and a happy one at that.”
While Herrera’s design is reportedly worth $35,000, you can achieve the same look at a more affordable price with the Bella Swan replica dress created by Alfred Angelo. Check out the photos of this lovely replica below:
