Wear Bella Star's Breaking Dawn wedding gown

Venezuelan designer Carolina Herrera designed Bella Swan’s bridal gown for the movie “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1”, released in November 2011.

The gorgeous white gown, worn by actress Kristen Stewart who plays Bella, has long sleeves with button detail from neck to hem, and a cut out back with lace embellishments. And now you have the chance to wear this design at your own wedding!


Herrera has said she will make reproductions of the crepe satin and French Chantilly lace dress by hand for customers of her New York, Los Angeles Bal Harbour, and Dallas boutiques. The original took six months and four seamstresses to make it, which would explain the hefty price tag of $35,000.

The designer herself says: “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. 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.”

Here are some images from the movie, not forgetting the to-die-for Manolo Blahniks...


If you are inspired by the Breaking Dawn movie and want to dress like Bella on your big day, but don’t have $35,000 to spend, more accessibly priced replica of the dress in white or ivory is available from Alfred Angelo stores in sizes 0 to 30W, retailing at $799.
