Lady Gaga - Lady Gaga's Meat Dress Enters 'Hall Of Fame'

Lady Gaga's iconic 'meat dress' she wore to the Mtv Video Music Awards in 2010, is set to be exhibited at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, according to Bbc News. US pop star Lady Gaga famously donned the outfit, made from layers of Argentinian beef, to the star-studded awards ceremony in Los Angeles.
The dress was stored in a meat locker before being dried out by taxidermists and transported to the Rock and Roll museum in Cleveland, Ohio. The garment was then painted to restore its original colour. Hall of Fame spokesman Margaret Thresher said the dress had begun to dehydrate and take on a "dark, beef jerky" effect. Gaga wowed audiences with the dress, designed by Franc Fernandez and Nichola Formichetti, when she accepted the award for 'Best Video' at the ceremony. She later told US chat show host Ellen Degeneres, "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 own bones. And, I am not a piece of meat".
Lady Gaga's 'meat dress' will be displayed as part of an exhibition titled, 'Women Who Rock: Vision, Passion, Power' which runs until February 2012. Several other 'Gaga' items such as photos, sheet music and other outfits will also be displayed.
