Lady Gaga made history at last year’s MTV Video Music Awards when she turned butcher’s cuts into high fashion. Lady Gaga went from rocking a rack of meat to having it preserved for the ages. You must wear have leather coats, leather skirts, leather jackets, leather bags, leather shoes, leather hats—but did you wear meat dress ever?
When pop star Lady Gaga turned up to the MTV Music Video Awards ceremony wearing a dress apparently made of meat with matching bag, fascinator and shoes millions were left baffled and intrigued in equal measure. “Bad Romance” singer Lady Gaga later explained the provocative fashion statement asserting, “I am not a piece of meat.” She also said that “I keep everything and dream of having a museum of all my clothes. I have an archive house for all my clothes,” she said. “[The dress has] been jerked.”
Lady Gaga’s meat dress is created by Franc Fernandez and Nichola Formichetti—and the special thing about Lady Gaga’s meat dress that dress was hand-sewn. Lady Gaga turned up to the MTV Music Awards wearing an outfit made entirely of real animal cuts on last September.
Lady Gaga’s meat dress will be on display until February 2012. Her meat dress will become an exhibit in America’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum. Hall of Fame spokeswoman Margaret Thresher says the dress took on a “dark, beef-jerky” look while dehydrating.
Hall of Fame chief curator Jim Henke told MTV New, “It’s going to be in a case and we are putting some canisters in there to control the humidity, and then we have this other canister that soaks up the glutens”. Lady Gaga’s meat dress made up of actual slices of Argentinian beef, has been preserved and should be relatively inoffensive.
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is dedicated to archiving the history of some of the best-known and most influential artists, producers, engineers and others who have, in some major way.
