Zac Posen Ain't Dressing Up Bella for Her Wedding

A rumour recently surfaced about Zac Posen designing a wedding dress for Bella in Breaking Dawn. Zac posted on his Twitter page about this matter:

Interesting. BDMovie pointed out that Zac designed dresses for three characters (not actresses) from Sex and the City movie. He could have just said 'the rumour is untrue'. Duh *facepalm*

Bella to Keep Her Clothes On, and That Dress is Vintage

A few weeks ago, a rumour floated around the web that in Breaking Dawn, there will be scenes where Bella would be wearing a little bit of nothing. Gossip Cop investigates this matter.

“The script actually has Kristen practically naked in it, a lot,” claims an E! source, and while that site is careful to point out that Breaking Dawn will be PG-13, other outlets have seized on the “naked” detail and suggested that director Bill Condon might push the boundaries with a bare Bella.
Gossip Cop spoke with a source who’s seen the script and tells us that if people think they’re going to see Stewart naked… it ain’t gonna happen. The scenes will be “romantic,” but the script does not call for nudity, and moviegoers won’t see any parts of Stewart they haven’t already. So while Breaking Dawn will be the most sexualized film in the series, don’t expect Stewart to spend “a lot” of it naked.
On another note, that beige/white dress Bella (Kristen) wore in the Lapa street (left) scenes is one-of-a-kind v…

Special Release of 'Eclipse' Clip in Japan

Nothing we haven't (obviously) seen. Still, the clip gives too many spoilers. Eclipse will be released in Japanese cinemas this month (wow!).

Uh-oh! Dawn Trouble in Rio

Looks like locals are not into vampires that much. Reports surfaced that the filming of Breaking Dawn has caused outrage amongst locals.

RIO DE JANEIRO (AFP) – Filming of the final installment of the "Twilight" vampires-and-werewolves movies in Rio de Janeiro has sparked protests by locals fed up with the inconvenience, media reported Monday. Some residents in the central Lapa district where scenes from "Twilight 4: Breaking Dawn" are being filmed set fire to a crew's portable toilet Sunday and demonstrated over not being able to easily access their homes. Tough security measures were thrown up around the production after an incident in August, when cast and crew from the movie found themselves in a deadly shoot-out between criminals and police in the hotel where they were staying. Filming of the finale of "Twilight," starring Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, was estimated to inject around a million dollars into Rio's economy.

Edward's Missing Wristcuff is Planned

After the first set photos appear on the net, fans are buzzing on the non-existence of the Cullen wristcuff worn by Edward.
Sérgio Sá Leitão, the director of Rio Filme, the organization that is working with Summit in Brazil says:
“The island, the beach, and the house will all be beautiful for Breaking Dawn. Don’t worry about the missing bracelet (we assume he means wrist cuff). Everything is going according to plan. Even if Brazil is only in the movie for five minutes after they edit all the footage together, it’s going to be a spectacular five minutes.”

Day Two of Dawn in Brazil!

Production is moving real fast down in Brazil! After scenes in the streets of Lapa, the production crew moves on to Paraty, where a few scenes were shot. The scene includes a waterfall scene, as well as the Isle Esme scenes.

Twilight Lexicon sums it up:
* Filming in the waterfall area began early today * The area is not accessible barriers and security have the area sealed off * The most you can see are crew trucks * Stephenie Meyer is not at this location but it is believed that Rob and Kristen and their doubles are * Filming should shift later today to the Isle Esme location * It is believed that Stephenie Meyer will be at the Isle Esme location * There is a veritable flotilla of boats piled with photographers and fans anchored off the island at the 200 yard perimeter established and patrolled by the Brazilian navy. Anyone attempting to break the perimeter will have to deal with the Brazilian navy

Official 'Breaking Dawn' Synopsis Released

Summit released the official synopsis of Breaking Dawn: Parts 1 & 2 at the American Film Market (AFM), as well as a teaser poster. It's nothing new, really (at least, nothing we don't already know), but still worth posting, IMO. The poster is the book cover, but with a Summit logo at the foot of the poster. Hmm ... hope that can come up with a teaser like they did with Eclipse.

In the highly anticipated next chapter of the blockbuster The Twilight Sage, the newfound married bliss of Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) and vampire Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) is cut short when a series of betrayals and misfortunes threatens to destroy their world. After their wedding, Bella and Edward travel to Rio de Janeiro for their honeymoon, where they finally give in to their passions. Bella soon discovers she is pregnant, and during a nearly fatal childbirth, Edward finally fulfills her wish to become immortal. But the arrival of their remarkable daughter, Renesmee, sets in motion a per…

Zac Posen (Possible) Designer for Bella's Wedding Dress [UPDATED]

Will this potentially be Bella's wedding dress? A while back, before Eclipse, InStyle featured wedding dresses for Bella by top designers. The one pictured is by Zac Posen.

Now, reports have surfaced that Zac Posen will be designing Bella's wedding dress (for real!) for Breaking Dawn: Part I.

ET Online is profiling top celebrity wedding designers and in the Portia de Rossi/Ellen DeGeneres wedding photo (Portia's dress was designed by Zac Posen), it's stated: "the designer is also reported to be making the wedding gown for the character of Bella Swan in the 'Twilight' films."

The design above is a "pink gown (which) features a turn-of-the-century corset, bustle, full skirt, high-neck and dramatic detailed sleeves. Posen keeps to the vintage theme by finishing with lace-up boots."

Hmmm ... hopefully this ain't the final dress if he really does design the dress.
