Designer Carolina Herrera: The ‘Breaking Dawn’ Wedding Dress ‘Had to Be Magical’
Reviews of the film are in, but how about reviews of the wedding dress? So far, not much has been said about the much-anticipated Breaking Dawn wedding gown, but designer Carolina Herrera certainly hopes fans love it.
“I worked on that dress for like six months going back and forth,” she told E! on Monday night at the film’s Los Angeles premiere. “I still have all the sketches and everything because it was so special.”
Herrera partnered with Twilight author Stephanie Meyer to design the gown, staying true to her description. “I think she did a fantastic job, and I respected what she wanted,” Herrera added to FabSugar at the premiere. The designer met with Kristen Stewart for fittings — “I think she’s fabulous,” she said — and really thought about the otherworldly subject matter as she sketched.
“You had to really take into consideration the whole story, which was this innocent girl with the first true love of her life,” the designer, who’s created wedding gowns for Christina Hendricks and several other stars, explained. “It had to be magical.” Tell us: Have you seen Breaking Dawn? Did you love the gown?
