Cape Town - A replica of Bella Swan's Carolina Herrera wedding dress, as seen in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1
, has hit the shelves just days after the movie's release, reports Daily Mail
Bridal retailer Alfred Angelo has advertised its replica of the silk long-sleeved gown on its website
The replica features the same seaming, sheer back panelling and lace detail of the original.
Daily Mail reports that the Alfred Angelo replica dress is priced at $799, while alfredangelo.com merely prices it at under $999.
The replica of the gown worn by Kristen Stewart in the movie is available in US sizes 0 to 30. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1
hit cinemas in South Africa on Wednesday November 16 and opened around the world on November 18. Speedy or spied?
Alfred Angelo is not in any trouble though, and their designers didn't have to watch the movie
to get a glimpse of the dress and then speedily replicate it.
The retailer worked with the Breaking Dawn
producers at Summit Entertainment since May in order to have the dress ready in time for the movie's release.
The original dress featured in the film was created by Venezuelan designer Carolina Herrera and Bella's look was completed with jewelled Manolo Blahnik pumps.
