It's one of the more unusual fashion shows you'll see this year. Featuring sweeping floor gowns to short eye-catching dresses.... Models dressed up in chocolate outfits in Belgium. It was all for the Salon du Chocolat - a chocolate fair in the Belgian capital. One model said it was just like wearing any other dress - except for the smell. (SOUNDBITE) Model, Cynthia Bolingo, saying (French): "The smell is strong because we can smell chocolate, so perhaps I might be tempted to eat my own earring, otherwise the feeling is not really special. It's more the smell that strikes me." Different kinds of chocolate in all shapes and sizes were used to decorate the dresses. One metal number even had donuts sticking out the side of it. Some 80 chocolatiers are presenting their work at the fair, which has similar shows across the world.
