Lady Gaga’s raw meat dress was imitation beef, but very effective for grabbing the attention she often seeks out. Although the meat theme went from head to toe, with her head donning a select piece of imitation sirloin and her feet bound in chunks of grade-A rump roast, she was missing some crucial accessories.
Flies would have really made an impact with her presentation at the 2010 VMAs. They did not have to be real; imitation, like the beef, would have worked just fine, but the flies were missing. Little black flies on the end of wires buzzing around her head would have made her raw meat outfit much more realistic-looking.
Another accessory that was missing was designer fly swatters. She could have held these in her hands or lightly draped them from the belt made of suet she had dividing her ensemble of red meat. To really get creative, miniature fly swatters could have been made into earrings and a necklace.
The sirloin cap was an understatement on Gaga; wouldn’t a large pot roast have made a bigger impact? You know the kind that I mean, all tied up in string with large chunks of fat on each side to add flavor to the roasting beef. Why do a small sirloin cap when you could have brought in the big guns of a pot roast?
Was it a mistake, or were the cut of beef ribs deliberately left out of this ensemble? Small sections of the beef ribs would have made great shoulder pads, giving the Lady draped in meat more of a beefed-up appearance (no pun intended).

The designer of the red meat dress did not take the accessories into consideration, which would have made Gaga more of a conversation piece than she is already this morning. Eye glasses made from the large meat forks, with pieces of imitation beef hanging off of them, would have made an impact on her facial features.
Oh, the accessories that this are missing is beyond comprehension. Her purse should have been made to resemble a large bottle of meat tenderizer. If you are going for the raw meat look, then go all the way.
Anyone who has ever cooked red meat knows the drippings that come along with this. Red blood is always oozing from the fresh meat you get at the grocer. Why not blood-red fishnet stockings with what would resemble bright-red blood running down her leg? This accessory would probably even fool real flies, so there would be no need for the fake ones!
Well, when all was said and done, Lady Gaga’s meat dress did make an impact, but unfortunately, they missed the boat with their lack of accessorizing.
