Models typically stay away from McDonald's before a runway show, but these fashionistas are going where no fashionista has gone before. According to, models at Funkshion Fashion Week in Miami strutted the runway in designs made from McDonald's sandwich wrappers, french fry boxes, and drink cups. The collection — appropriately named McDCouture — included 20 designs created by fashion students at the Miami International University of Art. As inspiration for future burger-loving brides-to-be, there was even a wedding gown made of more than 900 white and yellow wrappers.

The whole thing was a bit of a McDonald's PR stunt. The collection used "more than 4,600 McDonald's sandwich wrappers, 1,770 fry boxes, 1,100 straws, 600 to-go bags, 500 sandwich boxes, 200 soft drink cups, 500 ketchup holders, and 100 McFlurry cups." These dresses are not available for purchase, but they will be on display at the Miami University of Art and Design. Fortunately, you can still make your next prom dress from Taco Bell wrappers or — if your prom years are behind you — create a ball gown instead.
