Oh boy, here come the Lady Gaga knock-offs.

The NY Daily News is reporting that designer Jeremy Scott dressed a model in a matching bustier and skirt made of what appears to be prosciutto during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Milk Studios.

To quote the Vegetarian Star: “The dried ham look isn’t flattering on anybody, but with so many models aiming to be stick thin, why would any of them agree to look like a pig?”

    i dont agree with wearing leather however it’s a by product (i hope) plus there are plenty of materials and damn good alternatives. it shouldnt be the very reaon to kill. whats wrong with these people…? i mean whats with the constant consumption and greed.. even animals are more civilised.

    before commenting on lady gaga i read-up to see if there’s any deeper meaning behind her choice of the meat dress.. but her response to the attacks don’t make sense because her logic is flawed… the only thing i see is that it was an attention seeking thing and her naivity, ignorance, and perhap her young age is reflected.

    we are the dominant species at the moment so have a large effect on the future of our world, likewise this little girl (lady gaga) has a platform and it should be used wisely as she has the potential to bring real insightful knowledge to the youth. first though she needs to recognise that artists are artists because they express insightful and true perspectives in their unique way – this is the geniusness of the great artists. its not a craze for fame and ‘do-what-it-takes-behaviour’ that makes them an artist. these real artists have a core philosophy and they are able to share the implications of their philosophies. i.e their ideas in their great creative ways.. it seems she is hollow but with talent which is a stupid and as we see hazardous combination.
