Tim Gunn Disses Lady Gaga’s Meat Dress, Slams Suri Cruise
The Project Runway fashion mentor piped up about the “Alejandro” singer’s carnivore-friendly VMAs ensemble during an appearance on Lopez Tonight on Thursday. Gunn gave Gaga’s fleshy fashion statement a thumbs-down—not so much because it was in bad taste, but because it’s old hat.
Opining that the outfit was “shock value pure and simple,” Gunn cited similar examples from “the profound fashion revolution of the 1960s,” such as clear plastic vinyl dresses, and proclaimed,
“I respect Lady Gaga and her work, but we’ve been here before. So, Lady, it’s been done…be more creative.”
Gaga is far from the only recent victim of Gunn’s acid tongue. He also took time out during an appearance on Access Hollywood to lash out at Suri Cruise, the 4-year-old daughter of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes:
“Suri is, she’s her mother and father’s dress up doll and I feel in many ways she’s a fashion victim and it’s just very inappropriate…I think it’s unsafe too. She’s a little kid and [she’s] tottering around on these stilettos or quasi stilettos. It’s really inappropriate and I feel bad for her in a manner of speaking.”
Yikes; we’d suggest that Gunn treat the poor little toddler with kid gloves, but he’s probably not a big fan of those either.
