I know that some of my fantastic readers are major Twilight fans, which makes me so glad to share this with you today! The official images of Bella Swan’s stunning wedding dress! Personally commissioned by Stephanie Meyer, author of the Twilight series, Carolina Herrera was given the pleasure of designing Bella’s special gown. The beautifully-intricate dress is valued around $35,000, and was make from French Chantilly lace, crepe satin and boasted 152 buttons down the back of the dress.

In love with this design??? Not to worry! Alfred Angelo has created a beautiful replica of the dress, selling for under $800! Herrera is also rumored to be adding this design to her Fall 2012 Collection…

What a week of beauty! Speaking of beauty… how beautiful are these images of Lauren Bush (niece of the President) and David Lauren (Ralph Lauren’s son)!!!! They are just stunning! Of course her fabulous wedding dress was designed by her father-in-law (would you die!) and all the beautiful clothing in the engagement images are Ralph Lauren as well. Is she our Kate or what!!?? They had a Western Union theme wedding and I will anxiously await the rest of the images!

We’re looking at wedding photographs. “Any experience of a girl picking out her wedding dress is amazing,” Lauren says, “but I have to say it was really special to work with David’s dad, to see him in action with his team.” She and Ralph had a few casual conversations at family meals and holiday weekends about what sort of dress she’d like. In late June they met at the Ralph Lauren studio for their first official design meeting. “I walked in, and there were these beautiful illustrations of the looks we’d discussed with my face on them,” she recalls. “It was like a dream come true. We sat together and arrived at this silhouette. It isn’t Victorian exactly. I wanted something modern as well, so there is the high-necked collar and puffed shoulders with the large open back.” Made of richly embellished fabrics, the dress’s top layer is featherweight tulle in antique ivory. Some 100 craftspeople spent more than 3,000 hours hand-embroidering the tulle with delicate motifs of small flowers and Renaissance-era scroll designs in ivory silk and metallic thread, Swarovski Elements crystals, and off-white pearl beads. – Courtesy of Vogue

I never thought much of long sleeve, lace dresses until I saw breathtaking Kate step out of that car. My favorite designer of lace sleeve wedding dresses has to be Manuel Mota, whose dresses can be found on
