It’s been a royally gigantic year for weddings, and now you can own a little piece of two of the highest-profile nuptials of the past 12 months! Pippa Middleton’s infamous bridesmaid gown and the dress actress Kristin Stewart wore as her Bella became the Mrs. to Robert Pattinson’s Edward Cullen in the fourth Twilight film are currently up for grabs.
So if you consider yourself a TwiHard or a Royalista and you’re about to get married, dust off that checkbook.
The Alexander McQueen cowl-neck silk-crepe gown Pippa Middleton wore as maid of honor at her her sister — Duchess Catherine’s wedding — in April is now available on Net-a-Porter.com.
While many a replica – claiming magic behind-enhancing-powers – has gone on sale, this particular $3,100 dress is the McQueen real deal. Our prediction? It could be sold out before you finish reading this sentence.
Next up, there’s a replica of Bella Swan’s The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 Carolina Herrera wedding dress is also being prepped for purchase. Bridal design house Alfred Angelo worked with Carolina to create an official, licensed, accurate copy of the button-down satin gown priced at about $800. Twilight fans can now purchase this replica for their own special day at Alfred Angelo stores nationwide.
The original dress design is about “the magic and the moment that is the wedding, and also about her [Bella's] personality, which is very important in a wedding gown,” Carolina explains. “She is this very innocent girl that is believing in her first true love and there is romance and there is fantasy and mystery. I took all that into consideration.”
