As one of her more conservative outfits, (although PETA doesn’t seem to think so,) Lady Gaga first wore it to the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards. Designed by Franc Fernandez/Nicola Formichetti, PETA had previously stated:
“Meat is the decomposing flesh of a tormented animal who didn’t want to die, and after a few hours under the TV lights, it would smell like the rotting flesh it is and likely be crawling in maggots — not too attractive, really.”
Well, apparently it is attractive enough to preserve for who knows how long because The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland is putting the dress on display for one day only Thursday as part of its new exhibit: Women Who Rock: Vision, Passion, Power exhibit. According to the museum, the exhibit will “highlight the flashpoints, the firsts, the best, the celebrated — and sometimes lesser known women — who moved rock and roll music and American culture forward.”
Now the big question is, how on earth did they manage to preserve the dress for that long? I guess no one will know until Thursday, because that’s when the press will get a peak at the dress before the showing.
No reactions to display.
