This dress was crafted using Swarovski crystals and Lindt Chocolate's Lindor truffles. It is the perfect holiday cocktail dress for those with a sweet tooth (and an eye for the finer, sparkly things in life). Just make sure not to sit down all night long.  Fashion over function, right?

Rhubarb Wedding Dress

This ethereal frock employs delicate rhubarb paper to create a whimsical wedding dress. The entire "Taste the Unwearables" collection of fruit and vegetable-based fabrics revels in lightweight design complemented by vibrant hues. Summer salad, anyone?

The Salon du Chocolat Fashion Show

The Salon du Chocolat is a world-renowned affair celebrating, you guessed it, chocolate in all its forms. This festival would be incomplete without a chocolate-themed catwalk showcasing only the finest in cocoa-inspired fashion.

M&M Dress

At this point, it should be very evident that chocolate is the way to a woman's heart, and wardrobe. All the colors of the M&M rainbow are represented in this impressive candy-coated gown. She looks like the perfect movie date in a snackable ensemble like that.

Cheese Dresses

While daring couture and dairy products seem like polar opposites, these British fashion and textile students found a way to bring them together with stunningly beautiful execution. One ton of cheese and over a thousand hours of work went into these elegant designs. Now, who brought the crackers?

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.

Lettuce Dress and Chili Pepper Necklace

This vegetable-friendly style is the antithesis of Lady Gaga's infamous meat dress. And even though cabbage is the main component, we imagine it smells much better than a dress that consists solely of raw beef.

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.

Cupcake Gown

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. 

Ted Sabarese

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. 

Sung Yeonju

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?
