Lady Gaga’s meat dress is still in the headlines today, but now it is being talked about in a more graphic way, instead of its style.
The designer, Franc Fernandez, shared his thoughts about the dress and explained how he constructed it, according to MTV. Good meat cuts are what made the dress endure the evening without falling apart, turning rancid, or start dripping off the body of the lady who donned his creation, Gaga.
Many had concerns that the dress would smell and rot under the hot lights, but Lady Gaga said “it did smell, it smelled like meat,” and she apparently just loves the smell, said Fernandez.
The dress was planned over a period of a week, so apparently it was a newer thought on behalf of Gaga to wear such a creation. The prime cuts that made up the meat dress were not treated or “par cooked” to keep it together.
This dress will be talked about as the most controversial dress seen at any awards ceremony. It is topped off by the icon who wore such a creation, Gaga, who is known for her individuality and flamboyance.
I am having a hard time reading all the articles and hearing all the news casts describing the dress as if it were a designer marvel. The dress was made of raw meat and it was worn by a woman whose comments were, “I love the smell of raw meat.” This has to be the first time anyone in the history of any award ceremony was more concerned about the smell of her outfit than the way she looked in it!
Fernandez is talking about his dress as if it is going to take a life on of its own. “It is changing, he said ‘I like the idea of it changing and evolving into something else,” Fernandez tells MTV. Yeah, it is changing, the raw meat is rotting and it’s a rancid heap right about now.
He went on to talk about the dress and how it will not have a demise, and that the dress will live on by taking its rightful place among Lady Gaga’s other dresses. Please tell me this is not going to hang in a closet.
One of the amazing facts that Fernandez left out about his creation is that it has its own abilities to make its own embellishments. Much like how you diamond stud a dress, after this dress hangs in the closet for a while, it will grow its own jewels. These jewels are called maggots.
Oh, the dress that breeds life is what I am half expecting to hear next. Am I missing something here, or is this meat dress just what it was: suet and raw meat sewn together like a rump roast?
This dress upstaged every fashion designer who worked hard and long on their creations to be worn by the stars as they walked the red carpet. Pieces of animal flesh thrown together warrants more press time than that of Giorgio Armani and the late Alexander McQueen? Not to mention now meat is being talked about as if it were fine silk from across the globe. It is being idolized — “the dress will take its rightful place along with Gaga’s other dresses?”
Gaga was nothing more than a walking bacteria-filled hamburger that night; enough about the meat dress, it needs to go into the garbage!
