The Breaking Dawn Bridal Gown

In the latest installment of the Twilight Saga we finally get to witness the wedding of we've all been waiting for.

One of the best things about Breaking Dawn has to be Bella's beautiful wedding dress - designed by none other than Carolina Herrera.

The devil is definitely in the detail of this seemingly simple crepe satin gown. From the front the dress is modest, with only a slight v-neck to seductively frame the neck, but from behind it's a very different story. The entire back is revealed beneath a panel of Chantilly lacework, for a design statement which adds a touch of old Hollywood glamour. The vintage styling encapsulates the description given by Stephanie Mayer in the book, and with her design, Herrera has managed to strike the perfect balance between vamp and virgin.

If you want to take a bite of Bella's style, the gown is set to hit Carolina Herrera boutiques in the new year. If you can't wait that long Alfred Angelo has produced this great version, complete with 152 covered buttons.
