Gown commission of the year?

Though Sarah Burton landed the ultimate gown commission, designing Kate Middleton's Grace Kelly-inspired lace gown for the April 29th royal wedding, it's Carolina Herrera who's now claiming the gown-design spotlight. This past week, it was revealed that the classic American designer was tasked with creating Bella's wedding dress for the next film in the hugely-popular Twilight series, Breaking Dawn, Part 1.

So far, only teases of the gown have been revealed in film trailers, the dress design a closely guarded secret, as much as the new Duchess' traditional gown with eight-foot train.

Fans of the series are already salivating, anticipating something traditional with a modern edge for the series' no-fuss main character, Bella Swan, portrayed by no-fuss actress Kristen Stewart. And it's possible that Herrera's gown for Bella could garner far more copycats than the Duchess' long-sleeved creation.
