Lady Gaga's Meat Dress Turning Into Beef Jerky

09/23/2010 at 09:10 AM ET


One of the obvious problems with a dress made entirely out of meat is that it’s perishable. So, after Lady Gaga premiered her fleshy outfit at last week’s MTV Video Music Awards, fans had to wonder: What would become of the famous meaty fashion after the show? No, it wasn’t grilled up and served with a case of red wine. “The dress will go through a process where it becomes a sort of ‘jerky,’ ” the designer, Franc Fernandez, tells E! Online. But before you start salivating, be apprised that the jerky will not be available for tastings. It will be “archived” for posterity, Fernandez says, telling MTV Style that he bought 50 pounds of meat and designed the dress over three days, refrigerating it in between sessions. Over time, the metamorphosis into jerky is natural, he adds. “The meat dries out, rather than rotting,” he says. “But it shouldn’t be worn again.”And he’s not planning on designing another one. “There’s not going to be meat dresses in the future,” he says. “This was made for a specific purpose. It’s what it is.” –Tim Nudd

Please tell me that I am not the only one that finds this outfit disgusting? I eat red meat, but I certainly do not want to wear it. Why on earth???…

She even wears a meat headpiece. Wow. Meaty fierce!

Jacqueline on

It’s her style so we cannot judge what she wear. Everyone is different so we are not going to like the same style as others. If she like i love it.

Where are all of the PETA people calling her out on this? Did I miss something? Is it not offensive coming from the Queen of Declasse?

Jon on

Huh, interesting, good luck with that!

Lady Gaga loves to shock people I get that. But, I just feel she went way too far, it is disturbing to me. She is a great singer and artist why go this far, she does not need to, she is too talented for this.

Lauren on

They should sell pieces of it!!! i would buy one.

Lady GaGa is one sick person and to who ever thinks its allright to wear what she wore especially out in the public eye like she did you have issues your self.
