This is one catwalk style that's probably not going to filter down to retail.

The Salon du Chocolat Beirut, part of the Beirut Cooking Festival running 16-18 November, included a fashion show full of stylish chocolate dresses.

Lebanese designers and leading pastry chefs worked together to create 13 outfits to a Winter Wonderland” theme, including fashion and bridal designer Jean Louis Sabaji and Lebanese master consultant chef Charles Azar.

After the show, the dresses were put on display to entertain more of the 15,000 or so visitors expected at the festival over the three days. 

We're still wondering how they avoided embarassing meltdowns underneath the catwalk lights.
