LOS ANGELES — What started as a random pick by a harried wardrobe stylist for the blockbuster “Twilight” movie has snowballed into momentum for growth at BB Dakota Inc.
In early 2008, under orders to buy a colorful cover-up to enliven a heartfelt scene between a hunky vampire and his doe-eyed human girlfriend amid a grove of moss-covered trees, the stylist for “Twilight” plucked the young contemporary brand’s lake blue cotton canvas jacket from Nordstrom Rack for actress Kristen Stewart, who portrayed the love-bitten high school student. Some months later, the film became a pop culture phenomenon, grossing nearly $400 million worldwide and spurring demand for the BB Dakota jacket among frenzied teenage girls.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
