Now that the Academy Award nominations are out, Hollywood actresses are debating whether to wear Versace or Valentino on the red carpet. But in Korea this week, fashion taste has a definite sweet tooth.

During the chocolate trade show Salon du Chocolate, which kicked off in Seoul, models walked a runway wearing fanciful frocks made with the sweet treat for the Chocolate Fashion Show. Designers and chocolatiers teamed up to create each masterpiece, which pairs fabrics with chocolate for the tasty look.
