The Most Iconic Pics Of 2014
2014 was a big year for Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 was one of the biggest films of the year and the couple got married in the summer.
They made history as the first celebrity couple to wed in a same-sex marriage. As well as making headlines for their personal life, they also made headlines for their on-screen relationship. Here, we take a look at some of the most iconic pics from 2014.
As the first couple to wed in a same-sex marriage, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson made headlines for their wedding day. The Twilight Saga actress walked down the aisle in a stunning pale-blue dress designed by Louis Vuitton. The 29-year-old actress exchanged vows with her 36-year-old costar in front of family and friends at the Justice of the Peace Office in New York City. The ceremony was followed by a reception at the Hotel Astor in New York City.
Ahead of their marriage, the couple had already begun dating privately. They were later spotted holding hands in Mexico City in January 2014. And just a few months later they were married in a romantic ceremony at the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City.
Robert Pattinson Grooms Kristen Stewart In A Lavish Wedding
One of the most anticipated celebrity weddings of the year was that of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. The Twilight Saga star, who plays the role of Edward Cullen in the films, said he chose the venue because it was in the heart of New York City. It was also close to the venue where the wedding party was staying. And it offered a spectacular view of the Brooklyn Bridge.
The couple exchanged vows in a stunning wedding that was filled with romance and elegance. The 29-year-old actor wore a custom-made suit, and his groomsmen wore suits as well. And just as in the trailer for their wedding, the attendees were treated to a performance by Pattinson and Stewart during the ceremony. They shared an intimate moment as husband and wife after the ceremony, and the guest of honor even got toasting with the couple during the cocktail hour.
Kristen On The Cover Of Vogue
Kristen Stewart made history yet again when she became the first celebrity face on the cover of Vogue. The Twilight Saga star graced the May 2014 issue of the fashion magazine, alongside a story on Dior’s new fragrance, Diorsignature. On the cover of the magazine, Stewart is wearing a custom-made Dior dress. In the magazine, she talks about how she prepared for the shoot, which involved getting a spray tan, sculpting her eyebrows and wearing prosthetics to resemble a chimp. She later tweeted about the shoot, writing, “So honored to be featured in @vogue and on the cover of such a historic magazine!”
Kristen Stewart And Robert Pattinson On The Set Of Clouds Over Coachella
One of the most anticipated films of 2014 was Clouds Over Coachella, which follows a group of music lovers who travel to the annual music festival to spend a romantic weekend. The movie was shot during the last two weeks of April in Indio, California. While the event had to be canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the production team were able to salvage some of the footage and share it with audiences online. The music-themed film also features appearances from Jessie J, Demi Lovato and Maroon 5’s Mark William Herbert. CloudyOverCoachella was released on June 10, 2014.
The movie marks one of the first times that Stewart and Pattinson were seen together on screen since Breaking Dawn – Part 2. And it was also the first feature-length film to be directed by Robert Pattinson. Although much of the footage was shared online, a cut of the film was shown in theaters before the end of the year.
Escape To Paris
After their wedding, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson headed to Paris for a honeymoon. The couple walked down the aisle at Le Bourgoin Wedding Millesime in a ceremony that was also officiated by Rabbi Avi Shafran. Following the ceremony, the newlywed couple stayed in the French capital for a couple of days before heading off on a trip to Italy. They then continued on to Istanbul for a week before returning to Paris. They had a pretty packed itinerary, but this was just the beginning for this newlywed couple.
The trip to Paris was filled with beautiful outfits and plenty of romantic moments. The city of lights became their home away from home and it was there that they began exploring the city’s culture, arts and its food. They even rented a vintage car and drove all over the city, hitting all the main attractions. In a blog post from the trip, Robert Pattinson wrote, “Never have I driven so much in such a short period of time. Never have I been on such an adventure.”
The Year’s Biggest Comeback
Another big news story in 2014 was Justin Bieber’s comeback. The 19-year-old singer-songwriter had a huge year in which he released a new album, Purpose, and embarked on a world tour. The year was also marked by a tumultuous relationship with Hailey Baldwin. The 24-year-old model married Bieber in December 2013 and they got engaged at the end of the year.
While many thought that Bieber’s career was over after he sustained injuries in a car accident this year, the pop star proved everyone wrong. He began the year with a bang, releasing his new album, Purpose, in March. The album was inspired by his life and career. On his 28th birthday, Bieber released a handwritten letter apologizing for his erratic behavior and announcing the title of his next album.
In July, Bieber kicked off his Purpose World Tour in Vancouver. Along with his collaborators, the 19-year-old singer-songwriter opened up about the themes and messages on his new album in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.
“This album is about having fun and enjoying life,” he said. “It’s not about being miserable. It’s about finding the joy in life. That’s what this album is about. So many bad things happened in the last year, but it made me who I am today. It forced me to grow up. It made me realize how much I need my family. This album is about finding peace within yourself.”
The album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart, selling over 144,000 copies in its first week. By November, the album had sold over 500,000 copies in the United States.
The Year’s Highest-Grossing Film
The top-grossing film of 2014 was Gone Home, which opened on August 7, 2014. The psychological thriller was followed by another hit for director James Gunn, The Lego Movie and American Ultra. While Gone Home was directed by a woman, it was scripted by a man. And it is estimated that over 47.7 million tickets were sold worldwide, making it the year’s highest-grossing film. The British period drama film, Richard III, was also among the year’s top ten highest-grossing films.
Most Anticipated 2015
Looking ahead to 2015, fans can’t wait to see what projects Stewart and Pattinson will be involved in. Twilight Saga: New Moon was released in theaters on October 31, 2014, with the director’s cut arriving on DVD and Blu-ray a week later. In January 2015, Stewart will reprise her role as Bella in the next instalment of the Twilight Saga, Twilight Saga: Eclipse. The next day, it was announced that the director of The Grand Budapest Hotel, Wes Anderson, will direct a movie adaptation of Roald Dahl’s The Wonderful story of Henry Suggs. And in March, Stewart and Pattinson will be seen in the comedy, The Night Before, based on the short story “The Night Before Christmas” by Clement Clarke Moore. In addition, it was announced that Anderson and F. Murray Abraham will write and produce a television series based on their film, The Grand Budapest Hotel.
The Grand Budapest Hotel and Mr. Turner are both scheduled for world premiere screenings at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival in September. The first public screening of The Grand Budapest Hotel will be held on September 12. And on September 22, Mr. Turner will premiere at the Venice Film Festival. The Toronto International Film Festival and the Venice Film Festival are both regarded as the world’s top film festivals. This could mean that the couple will finally meet the press after all these years.
