Anna Wintour wasn't in the front row at this fashion show, but the frocks were certainly more appetizing than anything seen at the tents in Bryant Park. The Chocolate Show was back at the Metropolitan Pavilion, and a chocolate fashion show kicked off the event for the fifth year with designs from top pastry chefs and fashion and costume designers.

A crowd of journalists sipped hot chocolate, coffee and champagne prior to the show, which showcased 15 chocolate designs that ranged from a skimpy chocolate teddy to a fun wedding gown in the shape of a three-tiered cake. (NYC & Company director of communications Keith Yazmir even took a spin on the catwalk in a chocolate pajama outfit designed by Go Silk and Bill Yosses of Citarella.) Hosted by Sylvie Douce and François Jeantet of Event International, the chocolate show attracted more than 20,000 visitors by the end of its three-day run.
