Bella (kristen Stewart)'s stunning $35,000 Twilight wedding dress
The Duchess of Cambridge's wedding gown wasn't alone in causing widespread anticipation this year. In fact, Bella Swan - the fictional star of the Twilight movie series ran her a close second as fans of the money-spinning franchise clamoured for information about the design of her dress.
Now newly released images from the box-office smash show Bella's Carolina Herrara dress in all its glory. And it appears to have taken a little inspiration from a familiar quarter.
Bella (Kristen Stewart) is seen with husband Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) in the stunning custom fit gown which is made out of crepe satin and French Chantilly lace. And from behind the Carolina Herrara designed dress is studded with buttons from the neckline to the hemline - 152 - in total, in a remarkably similar style to Pippa Middleton's now famous maid of honour dress.

The rear of the dress features a sheer panel with delicate scrolled embroidery and was designed by Carolina to be a 'romantic' surprise. Stephenie Meyer and Breaking Dawn director Bill Condon selected the final design out of ten sketches that Carolina submitted.
The handmade creation- which was custom fit for Kristen Stewart, took Ms Herrera and four seamstresses six months to complete.
