Jori Phillips and her "novel" fashion sense

Bookworm and actor Jori Phillips had a novel idea.
Take an old thesaurus and and turn it into a dress.
And not just any dress.
The strapless frock is an intricate thing of beauty, with layers of ruffles and folds.
And it's an internet sensation.
Since posting her creation online a few days ago, Jori has enjoyed thousands of hits to her site, and international media attention.
She joins guest host Margaret Gallagher live in the studio.
