Seems Lady Gaga really did show us the beef Sunday night at the 2010 Video Music Awards. Her third dress of the night was made of ‘real meat from my family butcher,’ designer Franc Fernandez told MTV Style on Monday.

Check out what the ensemble looks like draped on a mannequin at Fernandez’s blog, where there’s also a close-up of the coordinating crystal-encrusted meat purse, and let us know what you think, in our meat-dress poll.


If you’re in the mood for the fast-food version of the story instead of partaking in that sit-down meal, click on past the break below for a shot of the backside of the dress -- it looks as if someone may have grabbed fixings for a sandwich before Gaga took the stage -- and a detail of presenter Cher clutching the meat purse while the younger pop star accepted her Moonman.

Oh yes, we also included a close-up of the shoes, but do make sure your lunch is settled before you view it. Not sure if the whole outfit was considered ‘leftovers’ by the time Gaga sat down backstage Sunday to chat with Ellen DeGeneres, but by the time the interview aired Monday? We say that’s a yes.

At this point, just on principle, the Ministry would like to take back anything negative we might have implied about Rita Wilson‘s Emmy Awards getup.
