#BLACKGIRLMAGIC: #BLACKGIRLSROCK - BLACK MODEL WEARS WINNING DESIGN At 2016 TOILET PAPER WEDDING DRESS CONTEST!!!



First choice: Wedding dresses, flower crowns, veils and bouquets made from toilet roll were showcased at the Annual Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest, won by Van Tran, whose design is pictured left and right

Each year, professional and amateur designers create wedding-ready bridal gowns out of CHARMIN TOILET PAPER in hopes of being chosen for an actual runway show in New York, where models don the, well, toilet paper before an excited audience!!!

WASHINGTON POST  reports it began 12 years ago as the brainchild of sisters Susan Bain and Laura Gawne as a means to generate buzz around their wedding website, cheap-chic-weddings.com.

For the past six years, though, Charmin and Ripley’s Believe It Or Not have sponsored it, and real money is at stake.
The winning designer receives $10,000, second place gets $5,000, and the third place winner walks away with a cool $2,500.
The 12th ANNUAL TOILET PAPER WEDDING DRESS CONTEST Presented by CHEAP CHIC WEDDINGS And CHARMIN took place at the HAVEN ROOFTOP At The SANCTUARY HOTEL in MANHATTAN, NYC. 
Designer VAN TRAN of BROOKLYN, NY, was crowned the winner, with JUDITH HENRY of WOODLAND HILLS, UT, and DONNA VINDER of BRENTWOOD, TN, placing second and third
