PARIS CHOCOLATE FASHION SHOW

Models took to the Paris catwalk this passed Tuesday in couture dresses made out of chocolate.

In a spectacular showcase of intricately designed ball gowns, fun short dresses and Avant Garde pieces, well-known French chocolatiers teamed up with stylists to create the pieces for an annual event celebrating chocolate.

Corsets decorated with chocolate roses or butterflies and chocolate-splattered skirts sashayed down the runway, the crowed gasping in awe when the showstopper- a dress made from fluttering chocolate butterflies, glided through the room.

French chocolatier Jeffrey Cagnes spoke of his design, a chocolate corset covered in red and gold chocolate coins tied up with red ribbons, was inspired by ladybirds.

"The dress is all in chocolate, it is a true sweet," he said.  "The difficulty with it is to keep it in place for a long time, it is hot in here, it lasts a short while and starts to melt."

The fashion show marked the opening of the Salon du Chocolat, which gathers top chocolatiers, pastry makers and confectioners to show off their work.
