Lady Gaga's Meat Dress
Here it is folks - the real deal Lady Gaga Meat Dress from the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards!
The infamous dress is a part of an impressive collection of female artists' clothing, personal items, and historical memorabilia as part of the "Women Who Rock: Vision, Passion, Power" exhibit at the National Museum of Women in the Arts. In addition to a few pieces from Lady Gaga (including her childhood piano), there are lots of stage outfits and other pieces from artists ranging from Billie Holiday to Taylor Swift. It's a great exhibit and a fun opportunity to see these pieces up close and in person!
And for anyone that is still wondering - yes, real meat was used to make this dress. And yes, it has been preserved for display purposes, haha.
