|Meat on show!|
That was the year pop diva Lady Gaga shocked the fashion and music worlds, by turning up at the MTV Music Awards, dressed like a dog's dinner!
Remember the 'raw meat' outfit, complete with meat hat and meat purse, that she wore to collect her eight awards?
It's a dress that certainly took some guts to wear...but, although everyone thought it was unique, this blog has discovered what may well have been the original meat dress!
Could Gaga's meat sandwich designer Franc Fernandez have actually stolen the idea...
She explained the purpose of the meat ensemble: "It's certainly no disrespect to anyone who's vegan or vegetarian. It has many interpretations but, for me, 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 bones. And I'm not a piece of meat." Whatever.
She sure looked like a steak sandwich that night...and in a 'borrowed' concept too!
