Steal the Look

So if you’ve been living under a rock, then you probably know nothing about Twilight. The franchise drives millions of girls wild, probably because it’s a Victorian gothic romance wrapped in the trappings of a cheesy horror movie. Supposedly, Stephanie Meyers named Edward Cullen after Edward Rochester (even though we all know Mr. Rochester could totally take Edward Cullen in a fight). If you don’t know how badass the Brontës were, check out this video:

These are the kind of action figures I’d totally want as a kid.

But I digress. Back to sparkly vampires. They’re currently filming Breaking Dawn, and pictures have been released. And the dress Kristen Stewart is sporting? I wants one. It’s perfect for a honeymoon with your vampire husband, or you know, a fashionable soiree downtown. The cut and structure are simple and flattering for almost any shape. The belt ties together nicely with the shoes—girl, or rather the costume designer, knows how to accessorize.

Unfortunately, it’s vintage. But my super Internet sleuthing skills have turned up knockoffs.

And those fantastic accessories I was talking about? The belt’s Prada and pumps are MICHAEL Michael Kors.

$355. For realz.

ON SALE AT ZAPPOS for $98. Boom.

How I’m supposed to believe that some 18-year-old girl is supposed to afford these things, I’ll never know. But if I’m supposed to believe that vampires sparkle, then I’m sure I can get over a teenager spending hundreds of dollars on a one-of-a-kind outfit. Either way, a nice sheath dress is just the way to round out my closet.
