• 1. It was made of 100% real meat

    The meat came from a local family butcher in Los Angeles.

  • 2. It smelled good

    Gaga said it had a sweet smell.

  • 3. The dress weighed about 50 lbs.

  • 4. The meat was cheap

    Peter Cacioppo, butcher at Ottomanelli Brothers on the upper East Side, said: “There are no expensive cuts here, no real steaks. The best you’ve got is the flank steak on top of her head.”

  • 5. It was comfortable

    Gaga said it was the most comfortable dress she wore all night.

  • 6. The meat was 100% natural

    No preservatives were added.

  • 7. There was no bloody trail

    Franc Fernandez, the designer, said: “It’s actually very clean meat, very sturdy and strong and doesnt run at all. It’s the meat you use to make a roast, where you roll it in a tortilla and put it in the oven.”

  • 8. The dress will eventually turn into beef jerky

    The meat dries out, rather than rotting. It becomes jerky.
