Breaking Dawn Part 2 Bella Cullen has a new spot!

Bella is seen sporting off the Bailey 44 T Rex Tab Sleeve Henley with Velour Trim in the scene where she and Edward are opening the gift box the Volturi had sent to them.

This beautiful top is stunning with its intense V-cut collar, shirt tail hem, and cotton/ polyester material blend.

It is no surprise Bella would be spotted wearing such a top, seeing as how she had worn the American Eagle Military Henley in Breaking Dawn Part 1, with similar chest pockets, and the Splendid Tab Sleeve Striped Henley from the end of Breaking Dawn Part 2, with the same tab sleeve design.

Though this lovely top is definitely a Bella Swan clothing junkie’s must have, it’s just about sold out on every website (including this one) and retailed for about $152.00. Time will only tell if this item will ever return, but until then… Happy Ebaying!

Bella Swan’s BD2 ‘Black’ Jacket with Gold Buttons

After being in complete shock from the final installment of the Twilight Saga, it was time to get down to business and find some Breaking Dawn part 2 wardrobe! I had noticed Bella in specific had so many jackets this film, no doubt thanks to Alice Cullen . One jacket in specific people had been trying to spot prior to the release of the film was a black jacket with golden studded buttons seen here:

My good friend Vee, creator and moderator of IBC’s sister blog, Go Ask Alice Cullen, had traveled here to the US to visit and see the movie with me! of course she wanted to hit up all the malls in the area (what Alice cosplayer wouldn’t?). We walked by H&M, J. Crew, and just about any other store you could think of that has had clothes featured in the saga. We had nearly walked passed Banana Republic when she decided she wanted t go in. I followed, spacing out, knowing anything I saw would be out of my price range for the month, and then locked my eyes on a jacket on the end of a sale rack….. This jacket –

This jacket is the Banana Republic Belted Pocket coat. It retailing in the store for $130.00, I was able to get it for $60.00 on the clearance rack, and the SKU number is 416134-00-1

Vee and I were able to match up all the seams and buttons to those on Bella’s coat, even the buckles on the collar. The only thing I’m still a bit stumped about is the color.

The color of this jacket is technically a navy blue though it could pass as a dark charcoal. the collar on the inside is made of a corduroy which would explain the contrast of the two “blacks” on Bella’s jacket, the actual coat looking black and the collar looking an even darker black. On this coat, it is a maroon color.

A couple of different theories I have:

– this is the jacket, just shot in a dark lighting

– this is the jacket but they dyed the collar black because the maroon was too distracting and eye-catching for the scene (They have altered clothing in the past)

– the navy jacket with the maroon collar this years jacket, and Kristen Stewart’s jacket was actually last years jacket. I was told, last year they had this jacket in black, this year they did not. I tried finding picture of it i black, but unfortunately I could not find the exact jacket in black. I did however find black jackets made by Banana Republic similar to the make of this one, but instead of the gold buttons, they were silver. I wonder if last years buttons were silver on this coat as well.

Although the colors are questionable, I believe this is the same make and brand as the jacket Bella is wearing in Breaking Dawn part two. I will however, keep an opened mind to anyone who thinks they have spotted the jacket with another brand!

Let me know what you all think!

UPDATE:

Bella wears the 2010 version in ‘Oiled Cotton”

It takes a lot of guts to walk into a public area swarming with twilight fans, dressed as Bella Swan. Not only will you catch people pointing and talking about you, but they will be judging you on your outfit. It’s a good thing we have some guide lines here to go off of!

Bella’s Entertainment Weekly Shoot Wardrobe Causing Confusion?

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?

 


Bella Swan’s Heirloom Hair Comb – Where To Buy The REAL DEAL

When MTV released the unforgettable Breaking Dawn 1 official teaser trailer, about 3 things stuck out to me. One, Bella Swan and Edward Cullen’s wedding invitation (I told my self I would definitely be recreating them for no reason at some point), two, the cut of the top of Bella Swan’s wedding dress (as a Bella Swan impersonator and cosplayer, every detail counts, and no matter how small the clues were, I grasped on to every bit of them) and three, Bella Swan’s heirloom bridal comb.

Seeing the hair piece, I KNEW it would be out in stores before the movie would be out in the cinemas. There was no way NECA (the licensed collectables company that produces prop replica jewelry for the Twilight Saga, among other things) would pass up this incredible opportunity. What twi-girl WOULDN’T want that comb?

A couple of months later, Necca did in fact release the comb in stores as well as online. At the time, I myself was unsure of whether or not I wanted to purchase it right away. In the end, I was obligated, being hired to work a Breaking Dawn wedding event for Fandango, but that’s another story for another time.

I was very impressed by the quality of the comb, and thought it a nice touch to add the blue velvet box. After seeing the movie, I couldn’t help but to think how Summit acquired THEIR comb. There could have been so many possibilities.

The answer lies with The Gilded Lilly, a jewelry store known for their pearls and unique styles, located in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.The Gilded Lilly was commissioned by Summit Entertainment to create the bridal comb, and actually worked with studio representatives. To read more about it, click here!

So now I’m sure you are all wondering if we can buy it. I’m pleased to say that the Gilded Lilly has made it possible to buy THE EXACT style used in the movie made with all of the same materials. Though the store offers different versions of the bridal comb from $29.99 – $36,000.00, the one used in the film goes for $399.00, and is called Bella’s Bridal Comb – Heirloom Edition. You can check it out here!

In The Car – Bella’s Cream pullover Sweater

I have had many people ask about this one sweater in particular. It is a very simple yet elegant piece. The scoop neck rests gently on the shoulders, and the slight ridges in the material give it a subtle texture. 

I for one, am curious about the costume designer’s motives. It is a lovely sweater, but If I had just found out I was having a half vampire baby no one knew anything about, and my husband was not too happy about it… a beautiful sweater would not have been my first choice. Perhaps that was the closest thing to appropriate and comfortable that Alice Cullen had packed, or perhaps it was just something that would work well with the shot. Either way, it is obvious Alice is one amazing fashionista.

This Sweater is known as the Hive & Honey Open Neck Lurex Pullover Sweater American Eagle Short Sleeve Sweater. Unfortunately, it isn’t being sold any more, but it has been spotted a couple of times on eBay. It has also been spotted at Plato’s Closet. If you live near one, I suggest you check it out, you may find more than one Bella Swan piece there!
