The dress took first place, worth $10,000, at the 12th Annual Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest presented by Cheap Chic Weddings and Charmin in New York City last month.

Tran's gown, which comes with a toilet paper shawl, is held together by duct tape. Contestants were only allowed to use toilet paper, tape, glue and a needle and thread.
