There was an unusual star of the catwalk at a fashion show in Paris - chocolate.

A packed crowd were dazzled with designs good enough to devour as the 19th annual Salon du Chocolate officially opened in the French capital, with dresses adorned with cupcakes, truffles and other edible treats.

Numerous French television personalities, as well as current Wimbledon champion Marion Bartoli, graced the catwalk wearing designs made by world famous chocolate makers.

Bartoli, who recently retired from women's professional tennis, said she really enjoyed being part of the show.

"Honestly, It was a real pleasure to do a part of this show. The dress was amazing and to see all the work done by the chocolate maker and also by the designer," said Bartoli.
