Summit Entertainment's Nancy Kirkpatrick talks about Kristen

The Hollywood Reporter: Kirkpatrick, the company's president of worldwide marketing, had something in her office that trumped any movie or television set: the Carolina Herrera wedding dress worn by Bella Swan, played by Kristen Stewart, in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 1. She invited the trio in, and together they marveled over the gown, made of crepe satin and French Chantilly lace with 152 tiny buttons down the back. Kirkpatrick also let them try on the Manolo Blahnik wedding shoes.

Kirkpatrick says her favorite Twilight moment came on the franchise's first Comic-Con panel in summer 2008.

"I've still never experienced anything like it. The decibel level was incredible. I remember Kristen came off the stage shaking because it was so overwhelming. She was a baby then," says Kirkpatrick.

"I always kept a mother's eye on her and am so proud of the way she handled everything since Twilight began," she adds.
