It looks like all it took was a whole bunch of bad meat to put together Gaga’s nauseating MTV Video Music Awards outfit!

She may often be seen in Alexander McQueen dresses that cost up to $10,000, or high fashion heels that cost more than most people’s rent, but for her most elaborate VMAs outfit Lady Gaga paid a very budget price — $100. The Daily News spoke with a butcher about her now infamous meat dress who said, “It’s the cheaper end cuts – not including her. You got about $100 of meat there.” How thrifty of her!

As for the cuts Gaga used, it turns out it was largely the lower end parts of the animal. “There are no expensive cuts here, no real steaks,” said the paper’s source. “The best you’ve got is the flank steak on top of her head.”

The dress took 2 days to sew together according to the designer, Franc Fernandez, and was made using meat he got from his family who are butchers.

One major drawback however — the smell! “”It ain’t refrigerated. It’s probably stinking bad. She’s in the lights: It’s cooking.” Cher must have been none too happy getting that hug from Gaga Sept. 12!

How do you feel about Gaga’s dress Hollywoodlifers? High fashion triumph or huge mi-steak?
