You won’t believe what outfits came from these foods
Chocolate Lindor Truffle Dress
Vintage Grapefruit Dresses
This getup is an oldie but goodie. The fresh-dressed beauty pictured here in a 1939 edition of National Geographic is wearing a gown made mostly of grapefruit peels. The frock was conceived to celebrate the harvest season of Rio Grande Delta, a town found at the southernmost point of Texas, which produces a large portion of the country's citrus fruit.
Gold Pasta Flapper
Who knew ziti could be so extravagant? This hand sewn flapper dress is a metallic ode to Italian fare that any carb-lover can appreciate.
Gummy Bear Gown
Famed fashion designer Alexander McQueen is the inspiration behind this weighty masterpiece. The color scheme mimics a rainbow motif straight out of Candy Land. We're getting a sugar rush just looking at this thing.
Wedding Cake Dress
If your mouth doesn't start watering at this sight of this much cake, you simply cannot be a living, breathing human.
Lady Gaga's Meat Dress
One of the most infamous dresses in history was the one worn by Lady Gaga to the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards. It was designed by Franc Fernandez and styled by Nicola Formichetti, and Gaga wore the outfit (a dress, hat, boots, and purse made entirely of raw flank steak) to accept her Video of the Year trophy for "Bad Romance," and later to press conferences and a visit to the Ellen DeGeneres Show. Afterward, the dress was preserved (it was basically made into jerky) and has since been archived after a visit to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Cream Puff Dress
It took two months and 1,500 cream puffs, but Ukranian pastry chef Valentyn Shtefano made a 20-pound dress entirely out of cream puffs, for his wife.
One would need legs much longer than this lady’s in order to actually wear this gown (seriously, are they just hanging there?), and you’d need to make sure that no dogs would be crossing your path, but this gown made entirely out of cupcakes is very cool.
Artist Ted Sabarese’s creations are beautiful, well-designed, and in several cases downright hilarious. In a series of photos, Sabarese dresses models in everything from cooked pasta to challah to a pair of pants made entirely out of waffles. You’ve gotta see it to believe it.
Artist Sung Yeonju created several non-wearable dresses made entirely of clothes, and they’re stunningly gorgeous. Who knew tomatoes, banana peels, eggplant, bread, and shrimp could be transformed into something so uniquely cool?
