(CBS News) An Alexander McQueen-inspired gown made entirely out of gummy bears was constructed for a photo shoot for the first issue of TWELV magazine.

The magazine's editor-in-chief, Hissa Igarashi, and designer Sayuri Murakumi created the dress out of the chewy candy to pay homage to the late designer Alexander McQueen. 

Steel wire was twisted into the shape of the dress then covered with a sheet of vinyl. Then 50,000 gummy bears were glued onto the dress one by one, taking three weeks to complete.

At its completion the dress weighed in at 220 pounds and required the strength of three people to move, according to the magazine.

The dress was inspired by the rainbow-colored gowns from McQueen's Spring/Summer 2008 collection.
