The costume designer for ‘Breaking Dawn’ reveals why Bella’s wedding dress in her nightmare was REALLY everything she detested!
Michael Wilkinson says he was thrilled to try out different looks and designs for the wedding, MTV Style reports.
“The script gave us a great opportunity to get inside Bella’s thoughts about the impending wedding,” he said. “There’s a nightmare wedding and her perfect wedding. For the nightmare, we chose something that was a version of the dress that she would hate to wear. Something that’s uncomfortable and a dress Bella would be embarrassed in. It was stiff and had a boned bodice that showed a lot of bare skin which she’d be horrified by because she’s a bit of a tomboy.There’s nothing very girly about her style so we had a huge, cumbersome, puffy skirt. We just tried to picture everything she’d find difficult to deal with and import that into a dress. The real dress fit Bella like a second skin and I was really glad about how all that worked out. It reflects her simplicity and elegance. It’s not too girly, I thought it really hit the right note of having some vintage elements while working well for a modern woman.”
