Lady Gaga's Meat Dress Returns! Is She Running Out Of Wacktacular Outfits?

Despite causing a worldwide storm, getting vegetarians up in arms and making us feel slightly sick the first time round, Lady Gaga is back to her meat-wearing ways. Oh my!

Lady Gaga's Meat Dress Returns! Is She Running Out Of Wacky Ideas?

It was back in 2010 that the bonkers songstress first raided the meat counter for an appearance at the VMA Awards. She caused sharp intakes of breath when taking to the stage in an ensemble made entirely of raw meat slabs, topped off with a steak fascinator. The outfit, created by Franc Fernandez, consequently earned a place at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and inspired a bazillion Halloween outfits. As if that wasn’t controversy enough, Gaga’s meat-over continued when she posed up a storm for Vogue Hommes wearing more beefy chunks in an ‘American’s Next Top Model’ homage [see below]. 

Fast forward to this week when we find Lady G in more meaty finery while dangling from a hook in the middle of a slaughterhouse *shudders* The 26-year-old tweeted the snap, taken by snapper pal Terry Richardson, on Monday but you’ll be relieved to hear those giant carcasses are actually plastic, that meat dress is in fact fake and the stunt is part of a performance for the Tokyo leg of her Born This Way Tour. Phewf.

Besides, don’t you think she looks slightly less nutsy in the reworked version? The structured skirt, corset-esque bodice and sweetheart neckline make the outfit - dare we say it - surprisingly fetching and those ankle boots are less gross and greasy, more glossy and well, fashion-ey.

So with the eccentric style chameleon reworking a past outfit, we can’t help but wonder whether Gagaloo is running out of ideas. Perhaps she’s finding it harder to shock us now that the scandalous likes of Rihanna and Nicki Minaj are snapping at her meaty heels? Granted, we barely batted an eyelid when Gaga donned that hair-raising purple wig dress last month...

But what say you? Are you tired of Gaga’s non-stop wackiness or are you still loving her barmy gear? The box below awaits your comment...
