ZAC POSEN to design Bella Swan’s wedding dress?

04 November 2010

Prepare to swoon, Twilighters. For this morning, we bring happy news...

Although Grazia Daily may not be classified as Twihards (what are the credentials exactly?), we confess a small squeal of delight escaped our lips when we heard this delicious insider gossip. Bella Swan (she of the vampire-loving variety) is rumoured to be marrying Edward Cullen (he of the dazzling beauty) in a gown by Zac Posen! Dun dun DUN!

The fictional couple are set to tie the knot in 'Breaking Dawn', the fourth installment of The Twilight Saga (you might've heard of it?) and of course, there's been many a whispering about THE dress. Kristen Stewart, who will be reprising her role as Bella, has been involved in The Hunt, telling MTV, ‘It’s such a big decision. I have a little hand in having a decision — or having an opinion more — but I think it’s pretty much up to Stephenie [Meyer]’. Described in the book as an early 1900s design that's just 'stepped out of an Austen movie', we're picturing classic vintage elegance, making Mr Posen the perfect fit...

And here's the proof! The US designer most recently created Coco Rocha's fairytale gown for her nupitals (lest we forget that Disney Princess-esque mermaid number) as well as Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi's gorgeous wedding ensembles. What's more, Posen's catwalk designs have long been hailed for their old-Hollywood glamour with a youthful edge, so we’re giddy with anticipation to see his work on the silver screen. But this leads us to our one teeny niggle - will Kristen do the design justice? And will Zac's gown satisfy the salivating fans when she walks down the aisle to RPattz? GULP.

Because here’s the deal. Kristen's become famous for her tomboy, verging on scruffy, style so Grazia Daily is struggling to see the surly 20-year-old in a traditional wedding gown... Perhaps it's because KStew isn't one to sashay down the red carpet in a floating floor-lengthener, Claire Danes stylee. She's more a fierce, leg-flashing Emilio Pucci kinda gal. In fact, browsing through our style archives, this Monique Lhuiller frock with draped trumpet skirt, which she wore for the Oscars, is the only gown of wedding proportions that we can find her in (please correct us if we're wrong, Stew fans).

So before you start throwing crucifixes at your computer screen, why not let us know YOUR thoughts on this morning's news? Is Zac Posen a suitable choice for THE wedding of the year? Or would you prefer a different designer to step up to the challenge? Oh, and - question of all questions - will Kristen pull it off? We wait with baited breath for your verdict...
