Pop star Lady Gaga Meat Dress Outfit Transformed to Beef Jerky After VMA. Designer behind Gaga’s controversial “meat dress” says that the infamous outfit will be preserved and archived for posterity.
Franc Fernandez recently told E! Online that “the dress will go through a process where it becomes a sort of ‘jerky’ and will be archived.”
“I think it’s just that — it’s just the meat dress,” Fernandez added. “There’s not going to be meat dresses in the future. This was made for a specific purpose. It’s what it is.”
Gaga wore to the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards. Fernandez had modeled the dress on matambre, a rolled flank steak dish from his native country.
“The dress will go through a process where it becomes a sort of ‘jerky,’ and it will be archived,” Fernandez revealed to our partners at E!.
“The meat dries out, rather than rotting,” he explained. “But it shouldn’t be worn again.”
According to MTV, almost 50 pounds of steak were used to create the killer look for Lady Gaga, which was assembled in a refrigerated environment and brought to the VMAs in a cooler.
Though the dress made headlines around the world, Fernandez says he has no plans to work with animal innards again anytime soon.
“There’s not going to be meat dresses in the future,” he tells MTV. “This was made for a specific purpose. It’s what it is.”
