The new issue of Town & Country Weddings has an interview with Carolina Herrera, the designer that created Bella’s wedding dress. People has a preview of the story. In the interview Herrera reveals what happened when Kristen Stewart first put on the gown.
“We did three fittings. When she initially put on the dress and looked over her shoulder into the mirror, she was very moved,” Herrera tells the mag, on stands Wednesday. “In that moment she was not an actress or a character in a film but instead a bride, and a happy one at that.”
She also talks about the design of the dress.
“I took into consideration the character of Bella and Kristen’s portrayal of her, and what this fantasy character would choose to wear for the most important day of her life,” she explained. “It’s made of a crepe satin with two inserts on the front and beautiful silk thread topstitching. The neckline is a slight V, just enough to see the collarbones. The back is oval-shaped, with a Chantilly lace border veiled in tulle. It’s very romantic, and when all the details come together, it creates a vision specific to Bella’s style and personality.”
If you’d like to wear the dress for your own wedding, it won’t come cheaply! Herrera will hand make all the gowns that will go on sale. According to People, the estimated price of each dress will be $35,000!
