2 words I never thought would go together: MEAT and DRESS.
But then you add these 2 words and it all makes sense: LADY and GAGA.
Need I say more? Okay, maybe a little bit more.
This past weekend at the VMAs pop singer, Lady Gaga, wore a dress entirely made out of raw meat. Also constructed out of of raw meat were her purse, wedge shoes and head slab… I mean “hat.”
According to New York Daily News the dress was made by Franc Fernandez. Instantly, I was in mutual awe and dismay of her attire. Maybe I’ve been watching too many episodes of Project Runway and have Michael Kors in my head, but I feel like this dress is just… blah.
While I applaud the unconventional fabric choice, I feel like it’s a one note outfit. The monochromatic look of the uncooked meat is boring head to toe. My suggestion for jazzing it up? How about adding bacon as boning on the bodice? It would have broken up the “meat-o-chromatic” look. It could have also been used as jewelry, mayhaps even a belt. And why not use our little round friend, Canadian Bacon, for the hat slab? I feel like if Project Runway judge, Michael Kors, were looking at this he’d quip: “It looks like she met Hannibal Lector for a dinner date and he got bored half way through.” Yes?
Either way, (meat) hats off to Lady Gaga for pushing the envelope. And PS – Watch out Mood Fabrics, Whole Foods is knocking at your door!
