'Twilight': How Bella and Edward Got Their Look

    EW.com caught up with "Twilight" costume designer Wendy Chuck where she explains why she didn't put Kristen Stewart and Rob Pattinson in a single big designer creation in "Twilight."

    In order to dress Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) in a manner befitting the teen idol that author Stephenie Meyer envisioned, Chuck says she turned to the royals of the early 19th century: ''His name personifies his look, which to me was English Edwardian. He's the embodiment of an Edwardian gentleman — very proper, has manners, and is very charming.'' The vampire's clothes weren't all inspired by history, though. As Chuck points out, ''He wears a pair of shoes that are lace-up and of the early 1900s, but then he also wears more current sporty clothes.''


    ''I wanted to dress Bella (Kristen Stewart) apart from the Forks kids because she arrives there as an outsider [from Arizona],'' explains Twilight's costume designer, Wendy Chuck. ''She's in lots of warm earth tones, with some Southwestern elements thrown in.'' Being the new girl in school wasn't the only obstacle Bella faced: ''Having come from a warm, sunny climate to the rainy gloom of Forks, we wanted to make her unprepared for the cold and the rain.'' Which is why, Chuck explains, we don't see Bella in a raincoat until later on in the tale.
