What would you do with 50,000 gummy bears?

New York-based magazine Twelv decided to create a ballgown made entirely of Haribo's finest as an homage to the late designer Alexander McQueen.

The magazine's Editor-in-Chief, Hissa Igarashi and Fashion Editor, Sayuri Marakumi, spent three weeks constructing the 220-pound dress for its debut issue.

The dress, modelled by American Jessica Pitti, above, was so heavy it required three adults to move it.

The multi-coloured jelly sweets were "painstakingly glued on by hand" to the dress base, which comprised steel wire and vinyl sheets.

The pattern was inspired by Alexander McQueen's own design, below.

A wonderful homage or a waste of good Gummy Bears? Let us know on Twitter or in the comments section below.
