WASHINGTON - You wouldn't expect newspapers to turn heads at the Newseum.

But when one of the visitors is wearing them, they just might.

Fifteen-year-old Jennifer Tran got quite a bit of attention recently when she toured the Newseum in a homemade dress made entirely of copies of The Washington Post and The New York Times.

Tran even made the Newseum's Facebook page. The McLean High School student tells the Post she made the dress as a Halloween costume last fall and was glad to get one more use out of it.
