Bella Swan weds Edward Cullen in the latest Twilight installment

Grazia Daily is pant-wettingly excited. Why? We give you three words: BREAKING. DAWN. PREMIERE. Yep, we’ll be hitting the red carpet for the London premiere of ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1’, which is taking place TONIGHT at Westfield Shopping Centre (what glamour!). We’ve had confirmation the beautifully haired Robert Pattinson will be in attendance as well as the impossibly abbed Taylor Lautner and – joy of joys! – rumours have emerged that Kristen Stewart will also be making an unexpected appearance. We're beyond hyperventilating.

If the L.A premiere is anything to go by, it’s going to be immense. Yesterday, we were cooing over the cast’s glad rags, from K-Stew’s J-Mendel dress to Nikki Reed’s Marchesa number and Ashley Greene's Donna Karan gown. And, as we mentioned, Carolina Herrera was also in attendance.

As the lucky lady honoured with designing Bella Swan’s wedding dress, she was grilled about the highly anticipated creation. ‘The inspiration became a little bit by the book,’ the US designer revealed. ‘And the description of the book, and the magic and the moment that is the wedding and also about her [Bella's] personality which is very important in a wedding gown. She is this very innocent girl that is believing in her first true love and there is romance and there is fantasy and mystery. Everything so I took all that into consideration.’ So basically it’s going to be the dress of every teen’s dream then.

Although the exact details are still Top Secret (the dress was protected by military-like security during filming), we do know it's made of lace and satin, features 100 buttons down the back and has long sleeves. How tantalising! What’s more, the book describes Bella’s bridal gown as an early 1900s design that's 'just stepped out of an Austen movie' while Herrera’s concoctions are suitably classic in style. Just take a look at the designer’s recent bridal collection for Autumn / Winter 2012 [above] where gowns were princess perfect without being too frou-frou-ey thanks to nipped-in waists flowing into full skirts.

So how will The Dress compare to Kate Middleton’s, Kim Kardashian’s and indeed, Blair Waldorf’s, we wonder? Only time will tell and mercifully, it’s just TWO SLEEPS until the grand reveal – ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1’ is released on Friday so get those tissues at the ready.
