Lady Gaga's Meat Dress to Exhibit in Museum


It'll be displayed alongside Stevie Nicks' boots at the National Museum of Women in the Arts

Lady Gaga's meat-dress-wearing antics may be seen more as performance art than fashion, which explains how the (now-dried) meaty concoction is now ending up in a museum.

AP reports that the meat (originally all raw) that Lady Gaga wore to the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards will be on display at the National Museum of Women in the Arts.

The museum, in Washington, D.C., is launching an exhibit of "Women Who Rock," showcasing artifiacts from Joan Jett, Aretha Franklin, and Stevie Nicks.

Naturally, not all of these items are food-related; most are items of clothing, especially boots. Gaga's dress, however, has been repainted red, to resemble raw meat, and will be paired with an explanation of its representation of the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy (instead of a stance against veganism or vegetarianism). "For me this evening, if we don't stand up for what we believe in and if we don't fight for our rights, pretty soon we're going to have as much rights as the meat on our own bones. And, I am not a piece of meat," Gaga said.

Other artifacts are from Meg White, Taylor Swift, Janelle Monáe, Bikini Kill, and more. The exhibit runs from Sept. 7, 2012 to Jan. 6, 2013.


Lady Gaga's Meat Dress Is Now Jerky & You Can See It IRL

When it comes to living fashion icons, Lady Gaga is certainly a name that would come to most people's minds. From her meat dress to her recent Met Gala looks (four, to be exact), the singer and actor knows how to push boundaries. Now, Lady Gaga's Haus of Gaga Museum will allow you to see some of her most memorable look up close in an homage to this style icon's 10 years of fashion.

In case you didn't already know, Lady Gaga has her very own Las Vegas show called Enigma. The show is beginning its second leg on May 30, and as part of the experience, the Haus of Gaga is opening alongside the show at the Park MGM. The museum will feature looks from Lady Gaga's career including her famous meat dress (which is now kind of a jerky dress thanks to preservation efforts) and her 2017 Super Bowl Versace body suit.

However, don't think you'll only need to see the immersive experience just once. You'll be disappointed if so. The Haus of Gaga is being curated by the A Star Is Born star's longtime collaborator and fashion director Nicola Formichetti who will be curating new activations for the space through the rest of the Enigma run at the Park MGM.

Of the ongoing Haus of Gaga exhibit, Formichetti explains that the experience is about giving fans a more immersive look into Lady Gaga's career. He says in a press release, "Lady Gaga and I wanted this experience to reflect the most iconic moments the Haus of Gaga has conceptualized during her career. Our vision for HAUS OF GAGA/LAS VEGAS is a space that will visually immerse fans into Lady Gaga’s most iconic moments that will leave them in awe."

While the Haus of Gaga museum is for the singer's fans, the exhibit features a charitable side as well. Not only will many of Lady Gaga's iconic looks be on display, but some of them will also be put up for auction. 100% of the proceeds from the auctions will go to the Born This Way Foundation. Fans of the Gaga will be familiar with the charity. It's one the she began with her mother to support the mental health of young people and encourage kindness and bravery in the world.

President of Entertainment & Sports for MGM Resorts International George Kliavkoff says in a press release that MGM is excited to five Lady Gaga's fans an even more immersive experience for Enigma. He also cites the Born This Way foundation as one of the reasons why MGM Resorts is so excited to host the Haus of Gaga exhibit. He explains in a press release, ". we are incredibly pleased with the opportunity to bring even greater awareness to the Born This Way Foundation, doing good for young people around the globe."

If you want to experience the Haus of Gaga museum, the experience opened on May 30 and will extend for the remainder of the Enigma tour and be open on days which Lady Gaga is set to perform. If you've been considering a trip to Las Vegas and are a Lady Gaga fan, now certainly seems like the time to go.

Notable pieces include Gaga’s infamous 2010 MTV Video Music Awards meat dress, the “cigarette shades” from her “Telephone” music video, the gown she sported to the 2012 presidential inauguration and 2017 Super Bowl bodysuit, both by Versace, one of her outfits from her role as Ally Maine in “A Star is Born,” plus various wigs, headpieces and accessories. Even one of the star’s Golden Globes is included in the collection, the Reno Gazette-Journal reports.

Formichetti told InStyle it was “quite emotional” to coordinate the exhibit in its entirety.

“We actually got quite emotional because we never look back. At the Haus of Gaga we always look forward, always trying to do new things," Haus of Gaga exec Nicola Formichetti said. (Cycy Sanders ​​​​​​​)

“We actually got quite emotional because we never look back. At the Haus of Gaga we always look forward, always trying to do new things,” he said. “It's all about looking forward. So, to have a space that is about her past is a strange feeling, but we wanted to do it for her fans.”

The Haus of Gaga otherwise keeps the 33-year-old singer’s looks in a “large, secured” California space that is “very temperature controlled,” and acts as an archive, according to the outlet.

"To have a space that is about her past is a strange feeling, but we wanted to do it for her fans," Formichetti detailed. (Cycy Sanders ​​​​​​​)

Formichetti detailed that the looks will be swapped out in the display, as “there's so many aspects to Gaga, I want to keep changing it up.”

Lady Gaga to PETA: Forget fur, I wore a meat dress!

Lady Gaga isn’t having any of PETA’s temper tantrums about her recent fur coat selections. Forget trying to figure out if those are real or faux &mdash she’s already worn a meat dress and more!

Lady Gaga‘s PETA rebuttal is a walk down fashion history lane while pointing out the obvious. From the infamous meat dress of 2010, to leather and a frock made of Kermit, Gaga’s famous for a willingness to wear animals whenever the mood strikes. Now back off, PETA!

Addressing the hullabaloo directly, Lady Gaga penned an open letter to fans and PETA on Wednesday. The piece, in its entirety, reads as follows:

To the fans. I want you to know that I care deeply about your feelings and views, and I will always support your philosophies about life. We’ve been having over-arching conversations about society, equality, and politics for the past five years, and we should continue.

I do not however support violent, abusive, and childish campaigns for ANY CAUSE. Particularly one that I respect. “Animal Rights.” I am choosing not to comment on whether or not the furs I purchase are faux fur-pile or real because I would think it hypocritical not to acknowledge the python, ostrich, cow hide, leather, lamb, alligator, “kermit” and not to mention meat, that I have already worn. This should already put me in a category as one who appreciates and adores the beauty of animals in fashion, but am not a strict vegan.

I have truly always stayed away from skinned fur, especially i have never been able to afford a nice one, but this does not mean my morals are rigid and that I won’t bend at the sight of an absolute art piece of a coat. I have no chains about this. You see a carcass, I see a museum pièce de résistance. But I am truly sorry to fans who are upset by this, its a fair and applaudable feeling about the health and safety of animals. I respect your views, please respect mine.

And to campaigners, Save your flour to make bread for the children who are hungry. And Kim Kardashian is fabulous.

Lady Gaga adds fuel to fire with Twitter response to PETA >>

Take that, PETA! Lady Gaga’s sure got a way with words when she wants to &mdash although we can’t help but wonder if she’s inviting retaliation from a group known to applaud paint and flour-bomb tactics!

The HAUS OF GAGA/LAS VEGAS exhibit was created by the Haus of Gaga, the longtime creative team behind Gaga's style. These pieces were curated from Gaga's personal vault, and featured items include ensembles and objects spanning from over a decade of her incredible career.

Highlights include some of her most jaw-dropping and headline-making looks, like the infamous meat dress worn to the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards. Other notable ensembles of the roughly 50 items on display include the Versace bodysuit worn by Gaga at the Super Bowl in 2017, and the solar system-inspired gown by Armani Prive Gaga chose for the 2010 Grammys.

"Lady Gaga and I wanted this experience to reflect the most iconic moments the Haus of Gaga has conceptualized during her career,&rdquo said Nicola Formichetti, Haus of Gaga member and curator of the exhibit, in a press release. "Our vision for HAUS OF GAGA/LAS VEGAS is a space that will visually immerse fans into Lady Gaga&rsquos most iconic moments that will leave them in awe."

Formichetti also consulted some of Gaga's most passionate fans, who affectionally call themselves Little Monsters, for their advice while curating the exhibit. "Throughout this process I&rsquove been in touch with her fans and asking them which outfits they want to see and how they envisioned the exhibition space," Formichetti told Vogue. "Gaga has always been doing what she&rsquos doing for her fans from day one, so it was important to have them be a part of this experience.&rdquo

How Lady Gaga’s Meat Dress Was Preserved

Lady Gaga has had many memorable and outlandish looks over the past few years, but her most famous outfit to date may be the dress made out of raw beef that she wore to the MTV Video Music Awards last year. Shortly after the show, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame set about acquiring the instantly iconic gown, but faced a unique problem: How do you preserve an article of clothing that was already beginning to decompose?

Two months after the VMAs, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame hired Burbank, California taxidermist Sergio Vigilato to begin the process of cleaning, curing and preserving the dress. In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Vigilato explained that when the 35-pound dress was delivered to his American Taxidermy shop, it had been frozen for weeks. Vigilato defrosted the meat, and treated it with bleach, formaldehyde and detergent before reassembling it to match the original design created by Franc Fernandez and Gaga’s stylist Nicola Formichetti. Once it was put back together, he dyed it a dark red to resemble the color of the dress when the singer originally wore it.

Since Vigilato’s restoration, the meat dress has been on display at the Hall of Fame’s “Women Who Rock: Vision, Passion, Power” exhibit, which will run at the museum in Cleveland through February.

Lady Gaga‘s wardrobe is getting its own Las Vegas residency.

Haus of Gaga, the team of creatives behind all of the 33-year-old pop star’s most iconic, one-of-a-kind ensembles, has opened its vaults to put 10 years of the singer’s looks on display.

The exhibit, which opened Thursday at Park MGM, accompanies the second leg of the Oscar winner’s “Enigma” residency at the Park Theater. The space will be an ever-evolving immersive experience that will allow the musician’s Little Monsters to see all of her best outfits up close and personal.

Highlights include Gaga’s infamous 2010 MTV Video Music Awards meat dress — which, nearly a decade later, is more like a beef jerky dress — along with the custom bodysuit she wore during her performance of “Paparazzi” at the 2009 MTV VMAs, the iridescent Versace bodysuit worn during her 2017 Super Bowl performance and the custom living dress from her 2010 Monster Ball Tour 2.0.

“Lady Gaga and I wanted this experience to reflect the most iconic moments the Haus of Gaga has conceptualized during her career,” Haus of Gaga member and curator Nicola Formichetti said in a press release announcing the installation. “Our vision for Haus of Gaga/Las Vegas is a space that will visually immerse fans into Lady Gaga’s most iconic moments that will leave them in awe.”

Select pieces from the show will also be put up for auction, with 100% of proceeds going to the Born This Way Foundation.

5 Years Later: See Lady Gaga's Meat Dress Now

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has acquired Lady's Gaga's infamous meat dress, and you won't believe what it looks like now.

Five years after Lady Gaga wore a meat dress to the MTV Video Music Awards, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has put the fleshy frock on display.

It's preserved with dye and formaldehyde, but conservators are unsure how long the item will last. Jun Francisco, the director of collections, says the dress is "very hard," telling MTV News, "Right after the VMAs, the museum contacted Lady Gaga about the meat dress and the plan for the future. They agreed to send it to us, but at the time it was still raw meat. So we had to figure out — we went back and forth with ideas — and the thing we decided on was to preserve it like a beef jerky. So it’s taxidermied."

Designed by Franc Fernandez, the outfit was one of three worn by the bisexual megastar to the 2010 VMAs. Neither of the other outfits are on display as part of the collection. Her piano has also been acquired by the museum as part of its “Women Who Rock” exhibit.

The museum also possesses the outfit's matching shoes, purse, and hat. The shoes are being displayed with the dress, but the other items are still in storage.

The dress and shoes will be on display at the Cleveland museum until the end of the year, although officials are considering extending the exhibit if possible.


Haus of Gaga / Las Vegas

Academy and Grammy award-winning cultural icon Lady Gaga is joining forces with her home away from home in Las Vegas to create HAUS OF GAGA/LAS VEGAS at Park MGM. Opening in celebration of the second leg of Lady Gaga’s ENIGMA residency at Park Theater, HAUS OF GAGA/LAS VEGAS is an ever-changing experience featuring Lady Gaga’s most iconic fashion pieces from her personal vault spanning more than 10 years of cultural, musical and fashion reinvention. HAUS OF GAGA/LAS VEGAS will be an ever-changing destination for Little Monsters who travel internationally to experience Lady Gaga and ENIGMA.

Curated by long time Lady Gaga collaborator and Fashion Director Nicola Formichetti, HAUS OF GAGA/LAS VEGAS is a space that will immerse fans into some of her most iconic moments, and allow them to witness never before seen memorabilia.

Items to be shown at HAUS OF GAGA/LAS VEGAS include cultural landmarks such as the iconic 2010 MTV Video Music Awards meat dress, custom bodysuit worn during her breakout performance of Paparazzi at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, Versace gown worn to the 2012 Presidential Inauguration, custom Alexander McQueen lace gown worn in the Alejandro music video, along with more surprises.


Lady Gaga’s Private Fashion Archive Is Going on Display in Las Vegas—Infamous Dried Meat Dress Included

A few weeks ago, the old Lady Gaga came out to play. Strutting, dancing, and posing up the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the singer and actress arrived for her cohosting duties at the Met Gala in not one, but four different outfits layered on top of each other. There were props involved too. The final ensemble was vintage Gaga: a glittery black bra, panties, fishnet tights, and ridiculously high platform boots.

When she first began her reign as pop music’s lady provocateur, Gaga, née Stefani Germanotta, became famous for her outrageous, scandalous, and always artistically inclined wardrobe choices. The bra and panties were her signature, followed by standout moments like the time she wore a dress made entirely of thin cut sirloin steaks to the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards. In between the costumes came designer red carpet gowns from houses like Versace and Valentino. But in recent years, Lady Gaga has tamed a bit, starting with her makeunder during the Joanne album phase. While promoting A Star Is Born, Gaga went full-on Hollywood glam, trading in the Philip Treacy lobster headpieces and latex for voluminous ball gowns and classic hair and makeup. The Met Gala performance perhaps foreshadowed a return to her wild child days of dress up. Now, she’s about to celebrate an unearthing of her most iconic—some might say craziest—fashion choices of the last decade.

Opening tomorrow in Las Vegas and coinciding with her residency at the Park MGM, running through November 8 of this year, the Haus of Gaga exhibition showcases around 40 pieces of clothing and accessories that have never before left Gaga’s personal archive. These include the custom Versace bodysuits worn for her 2017 Super Bowl performance, the fake blood-stained ensemble she wore to perform her hit “Paparazzi” at the 2009 VMAs, and the sunglasses made out of cigarettes that she donned in the music video for “Telephone.”

Of course, there’s also the infamous meat dress, which has been preserved, according to the creative head of Haus of Gaga Nicola Formichetti, like “a piece of jerky.” “It’s been dried and we’ve preserved it all this time, but it has another life now in this experience, all of these clothes do,” he says of the collection, on which he has collaborated with Lady Gaga since the beginning of her career. Formichetti has been in charge of curating and staging the display, which is open and free of charge to visitors. He is also working on a line of exclusive products that will be available for sale in the space, as well as a dedicated area for fans to donate to Lady Gaga and her mother’s charity Born This Way.

Today, speaking on the phone from the exhibition space, Formichetti was feeling emotional about the new project. “Standing in this room is surreal,” he said of the disco ball and spotlight bedecked room. “This has been a dream of ours for a long time. We’ve always wanted to do something like this and create a space where all of the outfits and shoes and masks and wigs could all live together in a single place for fans to enjoy.” The “little monsters” were in fact a very important part of this archival project. As Formichetti notes, “Throughout this process I’ve been in touch with her fans and asking them which outfits they want to see and how they envisioned the exhibition space. Gaga has always been doing what she’s doing for her fans from day one, so it was important to have them be a part of this experience.”

Outside of the most memorable and over-the-top archival items, there are also beautiful designer dresses and shoes from Alexander McQueen, as well as the much more low-key jeans and T-shirt worn on screen by Gaga’s character Ally in A Star Is Born. “It’s amazing to see all of these different fashion pieces next to one another,” Formichetti says. “The beauty of Lady Gaga is that she can be anything but still maintain her sense of self.” He also notes that despite the years of work he and the Haus of Gaga team have put in, along with the collaborative efforts of runway designers, “no matter if it’s a red carpet gown, a pair of jeans, or a pair of sunglasses made of smoking cigarette butts, the real magic happens when she wears it.”

Above, here’s an exclusive first look at the Haus of Gaga archival fashion experience, jerky dress included.
