Twilight wedding dress: romantic beginnings
Writer Stephanie Meyer and director Bill Condon chose this stunning Edwardian-inspired gown for Bella from 10 different sketches bridal designer Carolina Herrera showed them.
Once all the design work was complete, the dress was lovingly handmade by Carolina and four seamstresses, taking six months to complete. It’s worth an estimated $35,000.
