The 25th Paris Chocolate Fair, or Le Salon du Chocolat, saw models take to the catwalk in outfits made from the sweet treat.
The show on Tuesday celebrated chocolate-producing countries worldwide including Peru, Ivory Coast and the Philippines, featuring traditional music from and outfits inspired by each country.
The First Lady of Ivory Coast, Dominique Folloroux-Ouattara, was among the audience watching models including this year's Miss France, Vaimalama Chaves, strut their stuff. Chaves, who hails from French Polynesia, wore a traditional outfit made of Tahitian chocolate.
Designer Elsa Muse described the level of work which goes into such a dress. She made 2,000 individual chocolate pearls and covered them in different textures using cocoa powder and crushed cocoa to create a pattern, before threading each pearl on to an elastic string to be attached to the dress.
The Paris Chocolate Fair, which runs until 3 November brings together 500 participants and chocolate from 20 countries. Visitors can attend chocolate-making demonstrations, an exhibition on the history of the chocolate fashion show, or sample the creations of 230 different exhibitors.
