‘Watermelon dresses’: the bizarre new social media craze

IT gives new meaning to juicy couture.

People are posing for photos in a "watermelon dress" in the latest craze to sweep social media - and even Emma Bunton is getting in on the action.

Men and women are cutting the red fruit into the shape of a summery outfit and placing it strategically in front of their bodies.

Instagram fans hold slices of the fruit in front of a camera to make it look like they're wearing a dress.

There is nothing seedy about these very sweet pictures.
