We’re not sure if award shows have a policy regarding fashion sanitation, but after this little reveal on Lady Gaga’s meat dress, they may want to.
We had previously heard that the dress wasn’t real — and was just made to look like the raw meat Gaga slathered on for her Vogue Japan photo shoot. Turn out, in a rather disgusting twist, that it was the real deal.
The designer, Franc Fernandez, told MTV Style that the dress was made with meat from the local family butcher. As we wrote about earlier, Gaga told Ellen Degeneres that she did not mean to offend with the outfit, but instead intended to make the statement that she is not a piece of meat.
Yea, ok. But a real meat dress with matching real meat purse and chapeau? That’s just disgusting. As one commenter hilariously wrote over on US Magazine’s site, “PETA congratulated GaGa by sending her 2 lions and a bottle of A1.”
