In a brand new interview, the designer of the infamous, ‘Breaking Dawn’ wedding dress opens up for the first time about K-Stew’s reaction as she took on the role of the blushing bride — and apparently, she was a natural!
There’s no denying the fact that the Breaking Dawn wedding was one of the most magical moments in the highly-anticipated film — and Kristen Stewart looked ethereal in her custom-made Carolina Herrera gown! The designer opens up in a new interview, saying K-Stew was truly touched by her role as a bride. “We did three fittings. When she initially put on the dress and looked over her shoulder into the mirror, she was very moved,” Herrera told Town & Country Weddings. “In that moment she was not an actress or a character in a film but instead a bride, and a happy one at that.”
The designer worked closely with the author of the Twilight novels, Stephanie Meyer, to come up with the perfect look that embodied Bella’s character. “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,” she said of the dress. “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.”
The dress was truly one-of-a-kind, and Kristen’s portrayal of Bella was stunning!
