If you were a fan of Twilight, then you'll probably remember the moment you first saw Bella's wedding dress.

It was legit the dress of dreams, and came on the scene just before backless dresses became popular.

Well, now it could be yours.

This November will mark eight years since the Twilight films first hit cinema screens (yep, that long) and true Twilight fans can celebrate by owning a piece from the film franchise.

With over 900 props and costumes from the movies, Prop Store and Summit Entertainment have teamed up to sell all the pieces in only two days.

The Caolina Herrera-designed wedding gown will go on sale on November 19 and 20 in Hollywood, but you can also check out the auction's website here.


It's been four years since we saw Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 on the big screen (WOW we feel old), which means it's been roughly four years since we saw the little vampire-hybrid known as Renesmee.

Mackenzie Foy, who was 10 when filming Twilight, has certainly grown up, and she is an absolute beauty! 

Now, we are not saying she wasn't lovely back in her younger days, but she has grown into a really gorgeous young woman. 

Mackenzie started acting and modelling when she was just three-years-old. 

Mackenzie has also been killing it in her acting career since the Twilight days.

Following her memorable role as daughter of Edward and Bella, the 15-year-old went on to play Matthew McConaughey's daughter the hit movie Interstellar.

Mackenzie won a Critics' Choice Award for her role in Interstellar, and has just landed herself a role in Disney's live action re-telling of The Nutcracker and The Four Realms.

Slay girl! 



Can you believe it's been ten years since Twilight?! 

Yep, it's been a decade since Edward Cullen and Bella Swan's love story became a worldwide hit.

And now author, Stephenie Meyer, is hoping Twihards will fall in love with another story of star-crossed lovers, Beau and Edythe.

Yep, Ms Meyer is after gender-swapping the characters!

Stephenie and Little Brown Books released a special edition of the novel, which includes a completely gender-swapped version of the story called Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined

In it, Beau Swan moves to Forks, Washington and falls in love with the mysterious Edythe Cullen, who just so happens to be – you guessed it – a vampire. 

And as you can imagine, Twitter went wild following the news:

If you want to get your hands on the tenth anniversary edition, it's available NOW. 


The first novel in Stephanie Meyers Twilight Saga is turning 10 years old this year. 

If that doesn't make you feel old then we don't really know what will. Although, maybe we should take a leaf out of Bella Swan's book and find ourselves a centuries old boyfriend because that definitely keeps a gal feeling young. Not that it was creepy or anything, not at all. 

In honour of the multi-million euro series (and it's cinematic masterpiece counterparts) hitting the big 1-0 we at SHEmazing took a trip down memory lane and realised that despite it being 10 years on, Twilight hasn't answered many questions. 

While the novels only expanded in length as the series went on, we realised once the films were released that there were some aspects that nobody was talking about. We want answers!

Why does everyone fancy the Cullens when they are the #1 models of 'Resting Bitch Face'?

How do the entire Cullen family manage to avoid all of those speeding fines? Their driving is ridiculous.

Why does Bella not find it exceedingly creepy that Edward watches her sleep? They weren't even a couple!

Why isn't Bella more freaked out when she learns that Edward has been watching her sleep?

Did Jacob never find it annoying that his hair got in the way while he was getting super buff? We find our ponytails annoying at the gym, what gives, Jacob?

Why did Jacob take the time to get buff if he wasn't also going to fix his hair?

When Bella and Jacob went on that terrible 'date', who decided to go and see Love Spelled Backwards is Love?

What is the movie Love Spelled Backwards Is Love about?

Remember the werewolf that mauled his girlfriend's face because he "was a little angry"? That was not ok, not even a little bit.

Are we supposed to just accept that Emily's werewolf boyfriend Sam mauled her face because he was pissed off? How is this even remotely OK?

If Bella's dad was a detective, how did the Cullen family and their giant mansion house that appeared in the woods not make him curious?

How did Bella find the motivation to keep going to school and get amazing grades if she knew she was going to become an immortal vampire immediately after she graduated?

What is the point in Jacob getting dressed at all if he's just going to go running around in the rain and rip his clothes off anyway?

Was Bella not kind of creeped out by the fact that everyone she knew was really interested in her virginity for most of her teenage years?




It should all be relatively simple: you're definitely a catch of sorts – reasonably good-looking, with a 2:1 degree in your back-pocket and a dry sense of humour that you're particularly proud of.

OK; you're not everyone's cup of tea (no one can please everyone) but you've plenty of great friends and your major flaws are relatively limited (a-jar-of-Nutella-in-one-sitting habit aside). 

So why are you still single? Why are so many guys out there a serious let-down?

It's not that you're DYING to do the whole wedding and babies and mortgage thing any time soon. And granted, your mam heralding the arrival of your 26th birthday with cries of 'I'll never have any grandkids,' was embarrassingly OTT.

But somewhere at the back of your mind you know it's probably a good idea to start keeping an eye out for your lucky chosen one (lest Zac Efron not be available for marriage circa 2023).

Now US author Jon Birger has released a no-nonsense, full breakdown of why you're single: Date-onomics: How Dating Became A Lopsided Numbers Game.

He says he was compelled to research and write the book after noticing his single gal pals were always complaining that “guys were ignoring them or were toying with them”.

New York resident Jon is a financial writer for the likes of Fortune and TIME. He crunched demographic, census and other data to show that you're not just imagining it: it really is historically rough out there for the ladies.

In conclusion, and after much investigation, Mr Birger reckons there are eight reasons why women can’t find a man.

The book is definitely directed more specifically at an American readership, AND while we're don't necessarily agree with everything he says, here at SHEmazing! we also reckon there's a lot us Irish gals can learn from Jon's observations…

 So, without further ado, here's why you're single…


1) You live in Dublin

The divorce rate is higher than anywhere else; you’re more likely to be single in your 30s, AND there are just more women knocking around. In fact, in all urban areas in Ireland, men are outnumbered – meaning you want to consider a day-trip to the countryside (if not an actual change of address) to meet that special guy.


2) You do the wrong college course

When it comes to education, females trump the boys pretty much every time: last year girls did better in 50 out of 59 Leaving Cert papers.

That means our third-level colleges and universities are disproportionately full of women – by a ratio of 57:43, in fact.

“Facebook did a study a few years ago on how couples met, and it turned out that 25 percent met their significant others in college or grad school,” Mr Birger says.

So, you want to increase your chances of finding The One? Opt for courses such as computer science, engineering and agriculture – which are still male-dominated.


3) The men are playing you

As reported by numerous publications, Jon highlights that dating is out with younger people and hookup culture is in. He also reckons that with the gender imbalance on college campuses, men are “having a field day”.

And so he issues a warning: the longer a girl settles for casual sex as opposed to a long-term relationship, the more chance she has of ending up alone.


4) You’re not issuing an ultimatum

“Ultimatums work in business and politics,” Mr Birger reckons. “This notion that the only area of life you shouldn’t issue an ultimatum in is romance doesn’t make sense.”

Indeed, researcher John Molloy interviewed 3,000 couples right after they got married and found that 60 percent of the women were prepared to walk away if their guy suddenly declared he wasn’t ready.


5) You’re not making the first move

Go-get-em women are the ones more likely to get the guy. Mr Birger cites a premarital counsellor who told him that “of the nine couples he had in counselling, seven of them shared a similar story: the guys all had several options, but they married the women who pursued them the most”.

And ladies, don’t worry about turning off guys by being too pushy. “It’s a myth that men enjoy the chase,” the author adds.


6) You’re working in the wrong job

Slaving away in PR, education, nursing, event planning or other female-dominant fields? Time to get a new job!

That’s because around one in ten of us meet our spouse at work.

Some careers to consider instead: mechanical engineering, IT, and financial advising.


7) You’re too religious

“People who leave organised religion are disproportionately male,” Mr Birger reckons. “Atheists and agnostics are also disproportionately male.”


8) You’re too picky

“For the women who wait [to settle down], the dating pool gets much, much worse,” Jon warns.

He likens it to a game of musical chairs. In the first round, fresh into the dating market, nearly every woman gets a chair. By the final round, the chances of losing soar to 50 percent.

The author actually says if we were all more “open-minded about who we dated,” it would be less of an issue, but these days “both men and women have become more rigid about dating across socioeconomic boundaries”.

So to find a mate, women with a Masters degree should consider dating someone from a working-class background with limited formal education.



Celebrating their one month wedding anniversary, Nikki Reed has posted a video clip of her tying the knot with beau Ian Somerhalder.

The Twilight Saga actress and Vampire Diaries star are no strangers to publicly declaring their love, with almost daily Instagram posts of adoring messages to each other.


The short wedding montage is packed full of PDA and the couple are looking totally loved up and adorable.


And luckily for us, their wedding video is no exception. Nikki captioned the post with a short poem:

“You are my every dream brought to life. We are a cosmic collision. This is a lifetime felt in every moment I’m by your side. My love, my human…happy one month.”

The stunning bride wore a beautiful lace wedding dress custom-made by Claire Pettibone, while Ian wore a matching white suit.

Soon after they jetted off on a romantic honeymoon to Mexico, which was followed by a stop-over in Brazil, Chile, and Costa Rica before arriving in the French Riviera.


Salty…sandy…sticky…sunburned. The best. I love this human. My human.

The pair announced their engagement in January, after just 10 months of dating. Nikki Reed’s divorce from former husband, singer-songwriter Paul McDonald, was finalised the same month.




One thing has to be said for Kristen Stewart: the girl is never shy about giving her raw, honest opinion on a subject.

So when the topic of Twilight was raised during her recent appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers, we were all ears.

Given how ex-boyfriend and co-star Robert Pattinson has hinted of his semi-regret over the franchise (he once said Edward looked like a creep when he smiled), it’s good to hear that Kristen is proud of her work on the movies.

When asked if her pattern of picking independent movies comes down to a desire to distance herself from The Twilight Saga, Kristen said: “Oh man, honestly, those are my high school years. In no way am I choosing little indie movies to step away from it.”

Twilight blew up and I still look at it as something that made me who I am,” she admitted, adding, “In no way am I distancing myself…I’m just trying to do cool stuff.”

Fair play Kristen. Let’s face it, those movies and books got us through a lot of break-ups and lonely nights in on the couch!



Twilight fans everywhere must be pinching themselves this morning!

While Breaking Dawn Part 2 was billed as the final movie in the blockbuster franchise, it has been revealed that a new series of short films based on the popular books is in the pipeline.

Deep breaths, everyone!

In an interesting twist on author Stephanie Meyer’s bestselling series, the new films will be directed by five separate female directors, with the shorts focusing on the world of the Twilight characters.


While few details of the project have been released as of yet, the new series will be titled The Storytellers – New Creative Voices of the Twilight Saga.

A delighted Meyer expressed her excitement for the project, saying that she is especially thrilled to be giving a platform to “the female voice”.

In a statement released today she said: “I’m honoured to be working with Women in Film, Lionsgate and Facebook on a project dedicated to giving more women a chance to be heard creatively.”

The Twilight movies have grossed a staggering $3.3 billion worldwide, making household names of lead actors Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson.

How exciting is this news? We can’t wait to see where the directors take the story.      



A woman has married Robert Pattinson in a Las Vegas ceremony!

Or at least, a version of him. A cardboard one…yes, really.

But don't worry, she had a good reason!

Laura Adkins married the cardboard cutout of Robert as Twilight’s Edward Cullen for her university thesis.

This just gets weirder and weirder, doesn’t it?!

The 25-year-old explained the unusual project, saying: “I’m going through all the steps a normal bride does. It’s absolutely real.”

Her thesis touches on “the female escapist fantasy [of] finding true love” as she describes: “Because of personal attachment to and experience with this fantasy or quest, which took a particularly strong hold of me when I discovered the intensely popular Twilight Saga, my thesis exhibition will touch on romantic expectation primarily through the main love interest, Edward Cullen.”

This brings a whole new meaning to the immature phrase: “If you love [item] so much why don’t you just go marry it?”

Well, maybe we will!




Robert Pattinson is living in ex-girlfriend Kristen Stewart’s LA home after admitting he is now homeless.

Rob – who split from his Twilight co-star Kristen in 2012 –  is said to be back in touch with his ex after he was booted out of his own digs.

But Twihards needn’t get too excited just yet – as this doesn’t mean the pair are back together again.

Robert is just using his ex-flame’s house while she is away so he can spend time with their dogs, Bear and Bernie.

Rob revealed he doesn’t have anywhere to live after his parents moved into his home in LA when while he was away filming in Toronto.

We would take you in if we could Rob!

Hmmmm…we’re just not convinced there isn’t still a spark between these guys.

Emma Power reports.



Robert Pattinson is known all across the world for his acting roles, especially the movies that made him famous in the first place, the Twilight film franchise.

But apparently the 28-year-old wants stop acting for a little while, so he can focus on his music instead.

A close friend of the star has revealed that Robert is currently putting his new album together.

“He’s been busy producing his first album, which will be coming soon.”

But this isn’t the first time that Robert has hit the music scene, as the British star provided two of his own songs for the Twilight Saga: Never Think and Let Me Sign.

We’re not going to lie, we can’t wait to see what Rob has in store.
