The ‘Breaking Dawn’ costume designer reveals how he got Rob ready in a custom-made, vintage-esque tuxedo for literally the wedding of the century!

We now know every little detail and stitch that went into preparing Bella (Kristen Stewart) and her custom-made Carolina Herrera gown for the Breaking Dawn wedding — but what about Edward (Robert Pattinson)? Breaking Dawn costume designer Michael Wilkinson was given the task of finding the perfect tux for the highly-anticipated wedding — and it certainly wasn’t off the rack!

Michael told MTV, “No off-the-rack! Never. I drew up my ideal ideas for all the tuxedos. We wanted them to have a vintage feel, that sort of Edwardian turn-of-the-century vibe. Edward says, “I’ve been waiting a hundred years to marry you,” so we thought Alice would have fun riffing off of that. But at the same time we didn’t want it to look theatrical, we wanted contemporary, young, and fresh. I drew up something that combined the lines of Edwardian formalwear and we made it up in beautiful contemporary Italian wools and gorgeous shirting materials. We had a fantastic collaboration with Brioni. I sent my drawings over to the incredible tailors at Brioni in Italy and they sent back these beautiful suits. That was a really fun.”

He wasn’t only enlisted to craft the perfect look for Rob, but the men in his wedding party were also outfitted in the finest duds! “We put a lot of work into that too because we wanted to have them display a special, made-to-order feel. We didn’t want people to feel like you could just go out and buy them.”

Did you totally love Rob’s wedding look?
