The pressure’s on to look top-notch on the night of the Oscars. And there’s nothing worse than showing up to a gig and spying someone else in the same get-up. Dressing in one of these frocks made entirely of chocolate is a surefire way to make sure that won’t happen.

Foodies and stylists can rejoice in these (slightly ridiculous) cocoa creations from German bakery Lambertz that hit the runways in Munich. Pairing one of these with Christian Louboutin’s champagne flute stilettos would be a knockout. The look may not be stylist Rachel Zoe’s idea of ‘bananas,’ but who needs fruit when you have chocolate?

The cupcake-looking number might be a bit risque for the Oscars, but maybe someone daring like Anne Hathaway could pull off the dress studded with red shiny wrappers.


If neither of their selections suits your taste, perhaps there’s something in the Salon du Chocolat’s line that tickles your fancy? Either way, you’ll look good enough to eat.

Of course, there are some issues with functionality. Body heat and movement might be an issue, but that didn’t stop the Fame Monster from her artistic Grammy get-up.

What does your inner Joan Rivers think of these confectionery creations? Is it only a matter of time before Gaga gloms onto the idea of a full-sensory wardrobe?
