The fate of Lady Gaga’s now-infamous “meat dress” is known—and it sounds tasty!
“The dress will go through a process where it becomes a sort of ‘jerky,’ and will be archived,” Franc Fernandez, the designer behind the beefy creation told E!.
And he told MTV Style, “The meat dries out, rather than rotting, but it shouldn’t be worn again.”
Lady Gaga caused a stir when she wore the creation—which consists of 50 pounds of beef—to the MTV Video Music Awards earlier this month. The dress outraged animal rights activists, but the singer remained unapologetic. “Well, it is certainly no disrespect to anyone that is vegan or vegetarian,” she told Ellen DeGeneres at the time.
But critics of the dress need not worry about a similar creation being designed in the future. “There’s not going to be meat dresses in the future,” Fernandez told MTV Style. “This was made for a specific purpose. It’s what it is.”
