Lady Gaga's VMA Meat Dress: $100 Worth of Beef

Lady Gaga's VMA Meat Dress: $100 Worth of Beef-photo

Lady Gaga dropped the collective jaws of the pop world when she stepped onto the VMA stage wearing a dress made of nearly 100% (real!) raw meat. Following the show and PETA's panning of the carnivore couture, two butchers are tossing in their expert opinion on the quality of the dress, telling The New York Daily News it wasn't exactly fashioned from filet mignon.

"It's the cheaper end cuts - not including her," said veteran New York butcher Peter Cacioppo. "You got about $100 of meat there."

Franc Fernandez, the designer of the now-infamous dress, admits the frock was sewn together with raw flank steak. What might that have smelled like in the front row of the Nokia Theatre?

"It ain't refrigerated," Cacioppo said. "It's probably stinking bad. She's in the lights: It's cooking."

As for the specific cuts of beefy that made for Gaga's raw look:

Her bodice looks like the outside of the rib. Over the shoulder looks like it does come from a shoulder. There are no expensive cuts here, no real steaks. The best you've got is the flank steak on her head.

    Dress=Pure Win!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think Gaga would appriciate that it's being talked about *especially* if you don't like it.

    She is amazing and forward. Fierce in every sense of the word.

    That's just disgusting..I bet all people we're running away from her at the VMA-s.

    I didn't like the meat dress at all. It completely grossed me out on many levels. I think Lady Gaga is genuinely talented & I wish she was happy with being recognized for her talent rather than trying so hard to shock people with her outfits. That comes across as fake to me when you're trying to get attention for the wrong thing.

  • OMG
