designed the diamond-studded costumes for the singer’s bad romance music video which actually won the vma award for best video in 2010. the designer later told huffpost that one of the biggest challenges was that he created the dress without gaga present for an in-person fitting frank said we didn’t get a chance to have a fitting the only time she had it on was for the vmas only when i saw it on the monitor did i know it

would be big the designer also assured the public that the dress wasn’t quite as foul smelling as it looked well it wasn’t rotting at least fernandez told mtv that the dress had been stored in a cooler right up until gaga slipped into the layers of meat he said it hadn’t been sitting

out for more than five hours and it’s not a heavy gross meat fernandez also said that according to the singer it didn’t smell too bad and even claimed it has a sweet smell as for the process the designer also said that it had been refrigerated all throughout its conception as well the

dress was meant to cause a certain stunning reaction among viewers gaga did this by making the meat dress her third outfit of the night she didn’t even show up wearing it instead she stepped out onto the first paparazzi lineup in a red and gold preliminary gown by alexander

best fashion statement of the year even beating out kate middleton’s famous engagement dress there were other interpretations of the dress some art historians believed it was a reference to canadian artist jana sturback’s 1987 art piece called vanita’s flesh dress which represented

the idea of memento mori later in 2019 billy eilish had her own reaction to the 2010 dress ilish a known lifelong vegan couldn’t help but react with a yikes and a slightly horrified expression to each their own opinion but whatever you do never disrespect gaga’s little monsters on
