Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Inspired

SimoneNovember 21, 2011

The Twlight Saga: Breaking Dawn has topped the box office by pulling in $283.5M worldwide opening weekend. For those familiar with the series, you know Edward and Bella’s wedding is a major turning point and one of the highlights of Breaking Dawn.

The Twi-hards were worried about how Bill Condon, the director for Breaking Dawn Parts 1 + 2, would bring that moment to life. I saw the film this weekend and I can honestly say as a Twilighter/Twi-hard (I’ve read each book in the series at least 4 times and watched the movies more times than I’d like to admit) he (and the costume director) didn’t disappoint! The ceremony was perfect. The cast looked amazing and it was what I imagined it to be!

Here’s a sketch of the Carolina Herrera gown Kristen Stewart wore in the film.

The dress has a classic silhouette with long sleeves, a gorgeous sheer lace scoop back design with button detailing and a long lace train. She wore almond toe satin pumps w/crystal embellishments on her feet. Here’s a screenshot from the film of Bella practicing in her shoes.

The dress and shoe choices were perfect for Bella.  The dress was my favorite part of the ensemble because it was so simple in the front yet sassy and sexy in the back.  The fit was perfect and she really did glow. Something I’m sure all brides aspire to do on their big day!

Watching the film, I knew I had to try to find an alternative to the designer items worn in the film….and I FOUND IT!!!!

For a limited time, Alfred Angelo is now selling the Bella Swan Wedding dress for $999.00. This is a dead ringer for the one in the film. Neiman Marcus has the Manolo Blanik ‘Swan Embellished Satin Pump’ for $1,295.00. I believe these are the exact shoes worn in the film. A less expensive alternative for the Manolos would be to get a pair of white satin pumps from your favorite formal/bridal boutique and attach a crystal brooch or pin. The larger the pin the better.
