Beautiful Bella girl in Nylon magazine. Im definitely the only one in my office who likes Twilight for Bella. She is my favourite character. I think she has the most beautiful face ever. I cant stop looking at it.
I must admit, being a typical girl I do very much enjoy a good wedding. Im addicted to TV shows like ‘Don’t tell the bride’, ‘Four weddings’ and just every now and again, ‘Bridezillas’. There are tonnes of reasons why I love these kind of shows, firstly, to assess and judge. I want to see what the couple are like, whether or not they’re sweet together, deciding pretty early on whether it will be a ‘aw’ episode or a ‘ew’ one. (The thing that annoys me and my best the most is when lovely men marry psychotic women, see my earlier post.) Secondly, how they met. It always makes me smile, its nice hearing how people met and fell for each other, all be it a little bit sickening at times. Thirdly, the DRESS. The BEAUTIFUL BRIDE. 9 out of 10 times, I don’t like the dress, but i’m fussy, and like most girls have had an idea of my perfect dress in my head for about 15 years. Admittedly the design has changed over time, and it changed dramatically so after watching Mama Mia. I thought she looked beautiful, and i’d love a wedding somewhere like that. IF I ever get married, and that’s a very big IF. (I want to, don’t get me wrong, but judging by the kind of people I end up meeting its not looking likely.) So, they eat cake, they dance, they cry their way through the vows, they drink champagne, they get congratulated, and ultimately, they’re smug. Ok, now I totally am just bitter and jealous.
So…first it was the ring, and now its the Twilight wedding dress. I love Kristen Stewart. I think she’s beautiful. She has that sort of innocent child like face, and almost looks strange walking around in short dresses and heels, but I think that looks cute, and dare I say it, endearing. My favourite word. That weird twitchy thing she does with her mouth when she stares at Edward is really cute too, its as though she is so desperate for him that she cant get the words out, and the way that she looks at him with those amazing big brown eyes…it makes me hope its not acting. I know you can look at people differently when you love them, but god, she looks good doing it. For the record, I think I probably look crazy when i’m looking at people I love.
The ring- I wasn’t so sure personally. It was lovely, but not something I myself would go for. The dress on the other hand, I thought it was BEE E A YOUUTIFUL. I love a bit of long sleeves, the lace, the buttons at the back. It was so simple and elegant, and her body looked absolutely slammin. I would definitely wear that dress, i’d maybe just add a bit of lace detail to the bottom of it (getting carried away again) but the shape of it and the way it clung to her body. I loved it. Maybe ill just marry some weirdo so I have an excuse to buy this, OR, just finally get round to going wedding dress shopping with Amy. We’re going to literally just lie so we can try on dresses and see what we look like as brides. I think we would both make nice brides. Realistically, there’s a reason i’ve never bought anything white- but if I can refrain from clumsy behaviour for one day, we’ll be A-OK. Cant wait to try one on, take a picture, and promptly put it on facebook. You would too…don’t lie…
£1,300 for a Twilight engagement ring? Oh god. People are spending that money on a 14 carat, diamond encrusted TWILIGHT engagement ring. But just because you can buy a Twilight engagement ring, it doesn’t mean that you should. At £1,300, it’s clearly aimed at people who should know better. People who should realise that wearing an engagement ring based on a ridiculous story about a floppy-haired vampire will one day look as silly as wearing an engagement ring branded with the New Kids On the Block logo. People who should realise that they’re one small step away from sending out wedding invitations requesting that guests turn up dressed as Hobbits or members of Starfleet. People with fiances who understand that they’ll always play second best to Robert Pattinson but still stick around anyway because they don’t have any self-esteem left.
The Twilight engagement ring is such a bad idea, such a catastrophic waste of money, that it effectively eclipses every other piece of tacky movie merchandise ever made. So now is the perfect time to hold something of an amnesty. If you’ve ever bought or received a piece of bad movie merchandise, I want you to come clean about it here. And you don’t have to feel embarrassed about it, either – whatever it is, it won’t be as bad as a £1,300 Twilight engagement ring. I mean, I had a Spice Girls ring; but I was 5, and I wouldn’t be making a life long commitment to someone with it, whilst swishing around to 2 become 1 for my first dance.
Saying that, it is quite a nice design that ring, good taste R-Patz. For the movie.
