Want Your Very Own Carolina Herrera-Designed Bella Swan Dress?
For a mere $35,000, you got it!
People magazine reports that designer Carolina Herrera will now be reproducing Bella Swan's dress from 'Breaking Dawn, Part 1.' Each handmade dress will be sold for $35,000. Ouch.
Twilight fans can’t marry Edward Cullen, unfortunately, but they can look like Bella Swan when walking down the aisle. Designer Carolina Herrera recently announced that the dress she created for the Breaking Dawn wedding will be reproduced, and according to instyle.com, it’ll be available at her New York, Los Angeles, Bal Harbour and Dallas boutiques.
It won’t be so easy to get the gown, though; Herrera plans to make every crepe satin and French Chantilly lace dress by hand, so they’ll each come with a hefty price tag of $35,000.
Not that it’s an unreasonable price, though; Herrera, who’s made wedding gowns for celebs like Christina Hendricks and regularly clothes Renée Zellweger, spent six months creating the Breaking Dawn gown. “It had to be magical,” she said at the film’s premiere. I still have all the sketches and everything because it was so special.”
If you want that magic without the bank-breaking price, check out Alfred Angelo’s replica — the $799 gown looks similar to the dress Kristen Stewart wears in the wedding, and features the same cut-out back and lace embellishments.
Honestly, if I had $35,000 to drop on my wedding dress, I would want a completely unique and special one, and not the one Bella wore already. That's just me. How about you? Would you spend that on Bella's dress, or would you just get the $799 copycat?

I am sorry but under no circumstances would I pay $35,000 for a wedding dress!!! Not even $35,000 for a wedding. It is a waste of money. Marriage is a symbol of love between 2 people who want to spend the rest of their lives together,it is not for putting on a movie production. Yes we want to celebrate our weddings but it does no mean you need to go overboard and put yourself in debt for years.
Yeah, I would rather spend that 35k on the wedding and not on the dress. Plus, that dress looks too simple to be 35k and it does not looks mysterious at all.
Actually, neither one! Either price tag is not affordable by everyone. Your wedding day should be one-of-a-kind, not copycatting!!!
i told my fiance that if she wore a dress that ugly we wouldn't be getting married. sad part is that she agreed with me. How pathetic of a dress for such a big movie.
