Now YOU Can Own Bella Swan's Wedding Dress AND Shoes! (kind of)

Have you seen ‘Twilight: Breaking Dawn’ yet? Have you? Have you? Us too. And goodness gracious, how thrilled we were to see The Dress after so much hoo-ha. Yep, as Bella Swan walked up the aisle to R-Patz Edward Cullen, the world finally saw the bridal gown in all its glory. Okay, so it wasn’t as Princessy as we were expecting but it was utterly classic — think Pippa Middleton slinky rather than Kate Middleton poufy.

The figure-fitting Carolina Herrera creation is made of satin and features lace-trimmed long sleeves as well as a flowing train, but the real clincher was when Bella turned to reveal gorgeous lace detailing and 100 buttons cascading down the back. We swoon.

And — deep breath, Twihards — now the dress can be yours! Well, a version of it at least. Bridal retailer Alfred Angelo has collaborated with Summit Entertainment to create an official replica of Mrs Cullen’s wedding dress [above]. OMG.

Naturally, the project was a top-secret mission. According to designer Michael Shettel, the company used undisclosed code names and the confidentiality agreement was “signed in blood” (of course he’s joking…we hope). Only four people were involved in the creation and the ‘Bella’ dress was shipped secretly to stores in the US. And here we were stupidly thinking only ROYAL wedding gowns got this kind of treatment...

Bella wannabes can purchase the dress at Alfred Angelo stores if you have $799 (approx £512) to spare AND can get yourselves Stateside. Quite frankly, it's a bargaintastic option in comparison to the eye-watering £25,000 price tag for the Carolina Herrera original.

While you’re at it, why not pick up a pair of replica heels courtesy of Manolo Blahnik? The shoe designer has got in on the Twi-action by releasing satin pumps featuring a sparkling vine applique and aptly named ‘The Swan’. They’re available from Neiman Marcus for $1,295 (that's a cool £830).

All we need now is a sparkly vampire…

The dress is perfect in every way and the ideal dress I would want to get married in. Please make my dream come true. Netty
