Get A Closer Look At Bella’s Wedding Dress

Seeing Bella’s wedding dress come to life in this installment of The Twilight Saga was one of the more highly anticipated moments of the franchise. Stephenie Meyer says, “My favorite designer, Carolina Herrera, did the wedding dress. I wanted the dress to be something special, not something that you’re going to see every day. I love what Carolina did with it, she came up with a stunning concept. It’s similar to what I envisioned, but with added elements.”

Here are some interesting facts about the wedding dress:
·         Stephenie Meyer & Director, Bill Condon selected this design out of ten sketches that Ms. Herrera submitted.
·         The wedding dress is handmade and took Ms. Herrera and four seamstresses six months to complete.
·         The wedding dress was custom fit for Kristen Stewart.
·         The dress is made out of crepe satin and French Chantilly lace
·         152 buttons line the back of the dress and there are 17 buttons on each sleeve
·         Ms. Herrera designed the back of the dress to be a surprise, and she considers it very romantic. 
·         Ms Herrera plans to include the design in her 2012 collection and it will be available at her CHNY boutiques next year.
·         The estimated value of Bella’s wedding dress is $35,000.  
·         The bridal dress company Alfred Angelo will be selling a replica of the dress in select stores retailing at $799.


Robert Pattinson Opens Up About Twilight Sex Scenes With Kristen Stewart

Summit Entertainment

In a press conference in Stockholm, Sweden on Friday, Robert Pattinson opened up about filming sex scenes for Breaking Dawn with real life love Kristen Stewart. Admitting that they both found the scenes “difficult,” Pattinson said the set was “crazy” with everyone giving different opinions on how Bella and Edward should act.

“The sex scenes were difficult. The set was crazy and you have about 20 people in the room and someone saying things like: ‘No, Bella would not have made that noise. Can we do it again?’” he said.
“It was very charged, but a very tender and sentimental scene. It’s not a scene from the book, so everyone was nervous about doing it right,” Pattinson said. “A ton of other people were nervous. And, Kristen and I were both worried about the shape of our bodies would look on camera. We felt vulnerable.”
“It’s funny that all three movies portray sex as something scary and then, when they have sex in the fourth movie, they have a child with really rather devastating consequences,” he added.
