It’s has 152 beautiful buttons down the back, and it was designer Carolina Herrera that saw all of them essential when creating Bella Swan’s wedding dress for the fall box office hit The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Pt. 1

In a recent interview, Carolina said she wanted the dress to have “simple lines but with one extravagant detail in the back of the dress.” She referred to the style as “traditional” yet “seductive.”

So how did designing a wedding gown for a fictional character differ from how she treats her actual brides?

“I usually treat my brides in the same way,” Carolina admitted. “They have to be very special. … This one, of course, is totally different at the end. … You have to realize that millions of people are going to watch it and it had to be very precise.”

As we all the know, the wedding of Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) and Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) was the most highly anticipated fictional wedding of the year. That could put a bit of pressure on the dress designer! “It had to be going very much with the story of the film which is fascinating. … But I wanted to please the bride because the bride is the most important for this scene.”

She continued, “I worked very specific for that.” What did you think of Bella’s wedding gown: yay or nay? Play fashion critic in the comments!
