We've found the future winner of Project Runway. When it came time to decide what to wear to prom, Elizabeth Rasmuson ditched any thoughts of Vera Wang for Wrigley. That's right, the gum - Wrigley's 5 gum to be exact..

"I heard about someone [who] made a dress out of duct-tape or something one time, so I just was like, 'What's something cool?' and I always liked the colors of the 5 gum," Elizabeth says.

To make the dress, she bought tons of gum, passed it out to friends, and collected the wrappers back. She stopped counting after 200, but had enough to make a matching vest for her boyfriend, too.
The Iowa teen's mom fully supports her daughter's creativity. "She's a junior in high school and in today's world a lot of the girls are so worried about fitting in and being like the next girl. I just think it's really, really cool and really awesome that's she willing to put herself [out there] – especially with an event as special and one time as prom."
