Just days after Twilight: Breaking Dawn part 1 hit cinemas, replicas of Bella Swan’s wedding dress have gone on sale. And they’ve already been a big hit with fans around the world.
Venezuelan fashion designer Carolina Herrera was responsible for the original design, and bridal retailer Alfred Angelo was brought onboard to get the dresses ready for stores. There was a huge amount of secrecy about the operation, with even staff at Alfred Angelo stores not being in on the news until the last moment.
The dress costs $799, which is pretty low for a wedding dress. Although many of the franchise’s fans might be too young to need a wedding dress, this is one item that could become a fashion statement in its own right.
