Teen's Prom Dress Made Out Of Starburst Wrappers
MARY LOUISE KELLY, host:
Good morning. I'm Mary Louise Kelly.

The dress took six years and countless bags of the candy to complete. And there's even a matching vest for Tara's boyfriend, who, when asked whether he likes it, said simply, I don't really have a choice. Oh, and the dance's theme: Candyland.
It's MORNING EDITION.
