June 12th 2012, Entertainment Weekly released a “sneak peek” photo of Bella, Edward, and Renesmee Cullen clad in outfits that seemed to compliment each other. We were told to check back the next day for a complete release of official movie stills as well as a couple of new EW Magazine covers.
For some reason, when I read breaking dawn, one outfit in particular stood out in my mind (yes, spoiler alert!). When Bella goes to pick up the ‘legal (…not so legal..) documents’ for Jacob and Renesmee, she is describing an outfit Alice, no doubt, had picked out for her. The main piece being a cashmere dress.
I obviously cannot say for sure, but it seems as though the dress Bella Swan is wearing on one of two EW covers COULD be the dress. I was so excited to see this dress as well as all the official stills, I COMPLETELY overlooked something rather important.
I was having a very quick one on one chat with John Henson ( The Hillywood Show costume designer and owner of the official Twilight Costume Collection), when he brought up the main photo of Bella, Edward, and Renesmee.
Most of us, if not all, are very familiar with the outfit displayed on Twi-tour:
Incase a couple of us are a bit rusty, lets review. The Belstaff Double Breasted Zip Leather Blazer, Michael Stars Kasia Jobpur Pants, and finally, Steven by Steve Madden Isolate Lace Up Booties.
Having a quick glimpse at the Entertainment Weekly photo, we’d all assume it was the same outfit…
Belstaff Double Breasted Zip Leather Blazer, Michael Stars Kasia Jobpur Pants, and finally,
Steven by Steve Madden Isolate Lace Up Booties. !?!?!?
John had brought it to my attention that those boots though at first glance look the same, may in fact be a completely different pair, if not altered.
Coming from a man who owns a pair of the Isolate boots, he states that the ones from Twi-tour have a thick sole, while the boots’ soles in this picture have a thinner sole. The laces also seem to start further up on the [EW] boots.
“They seem custom or altered. The back leather guards are very battle fantasy…”
John went on to explain there seems to be an extra leather piece wrapping around the back that lace into the front, and the boots may not even have a heel. He then joked and said the designer could be toying with us twifashion fans.
So… if these aren’t the Isolate boots… what are they? And if these aren’t the Isolate boots… will they be showing them in the movie at all?
A bathing suit? No problem! Banana Republic sweater? Sure, why not! A Belstaff New Greenford Blouson Lady Jacket?… PARDON!?
It’s blatantly obvious that with the anticipated wedding of the century, it wouldn’t be friendly to our bank account as we take into consideration the top secret wedding dress Mrs. soon to be Cullen wears to meet Edward down the isle to finally say “I Do”. Though it was announced Alfred Angelo will be re-creating Bella’s dress in time for the premiere, it’s not expected to come cheap!
In this scene alone, Bella Swan is spotted wearing the Belstaff Jacket, 7 For All Mankind Skinny Second Skin Jeggings, Vans – Wellesly Hiker Skate Shoes, Manolo Blahnik shoes, with custome design and beading believed to be by Carolina Herrera, The James Perse Contrast Panel Shirt, and a beautiful dainty new four leaf clover ring.
taking certain things into consideration, like the custom design shoes, This single outfit comes out to around $2,000.00!
