Carolina Herrera: Kristen Stewart Was 'Moved' by the 'Breaking Dawn' Wedding Dress

We knew the gown Carolina Herrera created specifically for the Breaking Dawn wedding took six months to design and that it left Robert Pattinson floored, but in the new issue of Town & Country Weddings, the designer reveals Kristen Stewart‘s very personal reaction.

“We did three fittings. When she initially put on the dress and looked over her shoulder into the mirror, she was very moved,” Herrera tells the mag, on stands Wednesday. “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 dress seen in the sketch (left) is what the designer calls a “union between Stephenie [Meyer's] description in the book and the Herrera bridal aesthetic” — something she has been perfecting for 25 years.

“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 explains of the masterpiece, which retails for $35,000. “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.”

It was an absolutely STUNNING gown. I can’t think of any gown more beautiful. The back just took your breath away. Of course, very few bodies can get away with carrying that gown – and Kristen Stewart was one of them. She looked breathtaking, and I’m sure that’s why Rob loved it as well.

No 18 year old would pick this dress in reality.

Not to sound like a twilight fan but I have read the books and for those saying it was too old fashioned or too conservative for an 18 year old, that’s the point. It was “inspired” by edward’s era, the 1910′s.
