French Designer Constructs Gowns That Are Seriously Out Of This World.

Sylvie Facon may not be Cinderella's fairy godmother, but you'd swear that she has magical powers. The French designer creates some amazing fairy-tale style gowns that turn fiction into reality, but you won't believe what she uses for materials. We're not just talking fabric here. Facon uses the spines of old books, and a violin, to craft the most amazing dresses that you've never seen before. In fact, many of her works represent the best of French fashion and history like the Hommage à Arras, which pays tribute to the historic French town of Arras.

We can only imagine that Belle, the bookworm from "Beauty and the Beast," would love this dress.

It's ironic that this dress is next to spineless books since the dress itself has book spines added in the design.

Read any good books lately? Well, Facon clearly studied book spines to find the right one.

The words in a book can be lovely, but so can the spine, which acts like a corset in this design.

Facon's dress took 250 hours to complete and incorporates elements of fabric, book spines, and pages of books.

This marriage of literature and fashion looks good enough to... read. But don't touch, please!

The designer has clearly thought of everything, including the string in the back of the dress.

It really does look like something a Disney princess would wear to a ball to meet her prince.

While fashion is art, you'd never consider associating it with something like music.

Facon broke all barriers and apparently some violins to create this melody-inspired gown.
