Designers dream up Bella Swan's wedding gown

Design by Christian Siriano

Exciting news for all you Twilight fans!

InStyle reached out to several designers to see how they would envision Bella Swan's wedding gown.

In the third installment of Stephenie Meyer's saga, Eclipse, Bella's dress is described as an early 1900s design (with some modern tweaks made by Alice Cullen) that complements her antique engagement ring.

Check out the gowns, along with descriptions from InStyle, below!

My favs are Siraiano's, Badgley Mischka's, and Erin Fetherston's.

Zac Posen
This pink gown 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.

Badgley Mischka
Badgley Mischka's vision is a strong silhouette with vintage details like full-length lace sleeves and bodice, and a high-buttoned neck.

Lela Rose
Rose focused on the rear view of her off-white, handcrafted dress. The simple body gathers at back into a sweet lace bustle.

Prabal Gurung
Gurung had the most modern interpretation. The dress has a dramatic train, low-cut back and features a unique neckline with red embellishments for a touch of color.

Max Azria
Azria focused on the vintage lace detail for his Victorian inspired gown. The dress is complete with lace peaked shoulders, full sleeves and a high neck

Brian Reyes
Reyes envisions the fabric as a slightly tarnished bone color. The silhouette is a long skirt with a ruffled blouse and lace diamond inserts. The inspiration is a youthful spin on early 20th century Edwardian era elegance.

Erin Fetherston
This interpretation has a high-neck, puff sleeves and lace bustier. Fetherston put her signature ethereal touch on the two-tiered body with a tulle and lace underlayer.

Monique Lhuillier
Lhuillier's creation is a mermaid-style dress with lace detailing. The reworked take on a gown from the 1920s features a silk sash and high neck with cap sleeves.
