Kristen Stewart charms in sexy-backed Edward-approved dress
Did you catch the vampire wedding? I know – Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) and Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) finally tie the knot. Vampcitement to the max, just ask the fans.
We all cried a little the day he proposed. Or maybe that was just me. His pale face looked so earnest, so sincere. Then, the words: Marry me. My face was suddenly a soppier version of Bella's.
Last weekend, fanpires finally got to see The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 in its completed glory. And Bella's highly-anticipated wedding gown along with it.
K-Stew and R-Pattz charmed in their ceremony garb. But our eyes were mostly on the vampire-to-be. Stewart looked simply gorge in her Carolina Herrara designed dress made out of crepe satin and French Chantilly lace, with 152 buttons trailing down the back.

A similar button pattern could be seen on Pippa Middleton's maid of honour dress at the Royal Wedding in April, the Mail pointed out. Want to compare? See photos here.
Stewart really vamped it up in her $35,000 custom-fit gown and jewelled Manolo Blahnik shoes. "The rear of the dress features a sheer panel with delicate scrolled embroidery and was designed by Carolina to be a 'romantic' surprise," Mail Online reports.
"I loved the sleeves of the dress, not too fond of the front, but it's an Edwardian-approved dress. Loved, loved the back – it was sexy," our favourite Montrealer Twilight fan Mallory Proverbs enthused.

The dress is now available for purchase. The dress company Alfred Angelo is already selling the $799-worth dress replicas in select stores.
And that dress looks to be in high demand: Breaking Dawn grossed $62.3 million from Wednesday to Sunday. $42 million of that came in over the regular three-day frame, Entertainment Weekly reports. "That gives the vampire drama a ten-day total of $221.3 million, ahead of the $214.3 million Eclipse had earned at the same point in its run."
Twilight junkies camped out to catch the premiere, and Proverbs was one of them. Here are photos from the movie premiere by Mallory Proverbs:
