I rarely come across a collision of fashion and chocolate so I was pleasantly surprised to find that Lindka Cierach has created a Lindor dress. Linzi Stoppard was photographed in the dress this week, it's made of that striking red chocolate wrapping that's immediately recognisable and Swarovski crystals. It's a bespoke gown that cost £3,500, amazingly the chocolate appears to actually construct the skirt, how she isn't actually eating it while wearing the dress is completely beyond me.

Cierach's clothes are very striking, she shapes the female body in a really specific way and that makes her work surprisingly distinctive. While the Lindor dress is a novelty item it carries the characteristics, the cut of her clothing very well and it is difficult to envisage disliking her clothes because they make bodies look so interesting.
