When Lady Gaga donned her controversial “meat dress” in September, the media went into a feeding frenzy. But nine months and dozens of outrageous getups later, we have to wonder what became of the beefy frock? Meatpaper, a magazine about art and..um…meat, grilled designer Franc Fernandez on its whereabouts. Long story short: It’s jerky. Cured and dried, then painted to look “fresh,” the frock lives on in infamy at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland as part of the “Women Who Rock” exhibit. Does the news make it any less vomit-inducing? No, but at least it didn’t end up discarded in a trash heap somewhere.
