Michelle Trachtenberg Talks About Almost Being Cast as Bella

According to Celebuzz, Michelle Trachtenberg told Us Weekly that she had the part of Bella, but her schedule didn’t allow for it:

We can never imagine Twilight without our girl Kristen Stewart, but Michelle Trachtenberg told Us Weekly the role was almost hers but “schedules never worked out.” 

“There was definitely interest here and there because there’s only so few pale girls in Hollywood,” she explained. “I’ve known [director] Catherine Hardwicke since the movie Thirteen. I was actually supposed to star in that, but I was on Buffy at the time.”

Shoe Designer Brian Atwood talks Kristen wearing his velvet heels at Grauman’s

Kristen Stewart is a huge fan of your platform designs. Earlier this month, she wore a pair of your Marcella heels to her Hollywood Walk of Fame handprint ceremony and she was photographed swapping them out for a pair of checkered Vans. What was going on there?

“She had to take them off. She didn’t want to ruin them, because they were velvet.”

Ohhh, we’re glad you cleared that up. So it wasn’t because the shoes were uncomfortable?

“No, no, no. Not at all. She didn’t want to ruin the velvet. I thought she would have gone barefoot, but I guess they had to be in shoes. She didn’t want to put cement feet [in the heels].”

For those wondering what the ‘Marcella’ shoe looks like up close, here it is! I didn’t realize they were velvet! LOVE. Although, I have a feeling Kristen put her vans on because she felt more comfortable in them because that’s who she is. ;)
