The Twilight Saga: “A Thousand Years” Song by Christina PerriOct 28, 2011 @ 11:00 am
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 premieres November 18th, and there’s a new music video to get you even more excited to watch Bella Swan marry Edward Cullen on the big screen—“A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri. The tune is one of the leading songs on the movie’s soundtrack, and the just-released music video features new shots from the film interspersed with the singer wearing an elaborate black gown that mirrors the lavishness of Bella’s Carolina Herrera wedding dress. “This video really called for something grandiose,” Perri tells InStyle.com of her look. “The dress had to be as dramatic as the setting.” To get something just right, Perri worked with her stylist Alejandro Peraza, who custom-designed her outfit. “I felt like Cinderella,” Perri says. “It’s definitely the most over-the-top thing I’ve ever worn and I can’t imagine having worn anything else.” Peraza completed Perri’s look by dripping her in diamonds from Friedman Beverly Hills—the white gold chain link bracelet she wore features 1,547 round brilliant-cut stones totaling 30 carats, a piece worth over $160,000. Watch the video above to get closer look at Perri’s Twilight-inspired look, and see more scenes from the upcoming movie!
