What happened to Lady Gaga's meat dress after she wore it to the 2010 Video Music Awards?

According to Franc Fernandez, the designer who created the look, he told us yesterday that the dress "will be put in an archive with all of her dresses. The Gaga Archives, I suppose." And, as for who is handling it now, Franc Fernandez says: "She has people who handle everything, so it's with them."

However, Lady Gaga's meat dress is not out of the picture yet! Yesterday, musician Sam Sparro tweetedthis picture of the meat dress post-Gaga. Sam Sparro wrote: "The Meat Dress by @FRANCFERNANDEZ ... The morning after."

We're not sure if Sam Sparro took this picture, but he did post it, and he does have a connection to the meat dress. Sam Sparro — who is also known for some amazing stage outfits — is shooting a music video with meat dress designer Franc Fernandez today, which Fernandez tweeted this morning.

And Sam Sparro's picture tells us so much! Here's what we can gather from the morning-after photo of Lady Gaga's meat dress:

• For one thing, Lady Gaga's meat dress, in the Post-Gaga-Wearing-It time period, is NOT being refrigerated, or at least it wasn't in this photo. And still, remarkably, it has kept its vibrant red color!

• Also, you can totally see the white lace-up shoes used as a base to the meat shoes, and the butcher twine that unraveled.

• As for the rest of the dress, it's just hanging off the chair, and there is meat, meat everywhere!

Manicure alert! Ke$ha and porn star Jenna Jameson both showed up to the Video Music Awards with the same cheetah-print foil pasted onto their fingertips. (It looks like they are Minx nails!) We know Ke$ha always loves animal-inspired things because she named her first album "Animal," and he even played off her colorful manicure with equally colorful gigantic stone rings. As for Jenna Jameson — well, apparently, she has some animal instincts in her as well.

+ Cheetah-print nails — love them or hate them?

Lady Gaga's meat dress was by far the most outrageous fashion moment of the 2010 Video Music Awards last night. It was her third and final outfit change of the night (she wore it to accept her Moonman for Video Of The Year), and definitely the most insane. But the bigger question is — was Lady Gaga's meat dress real?

The answer is YES.

The designer behind the dress is Franc Fernandez. And when we chatted with him this morning, he told us: "The dress is indeed real meat from my family butcher. Glad it went so well." Franc Fernandez showed off how he created the look on his blog this morning, and it's a work of art. (Lady Gaga's stylist, Nicola Formichetti, was the one who styled the look.)

So why meat? It's symbolic ...

On why Lady Gaga chose a meat dress, she told Ellen DeGeneres that it was a symbolic choice: "Well, it is certainly no disrespect to anyone that is vegan or vegetarian. As you know, I am the most judgment-free human being on the earth. However, it has many interpretations, but for me this evening ... 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."

Nicki Minaj wore two KILLER outfits at the 2010 Video Music Awards Sunday night. And we loved them both! For her VMA Pre-Show performance, Nicki Minaj wore a purple spandex jumpsuit and black boots and later changed into Champagne-hued trousers and vest to present on stage with Katy Perry. We caught up with Nicki Minaj's stylist, Niki Schwan, to find out the sweat, love, and last-minute changes that went into these looks. Read on for all the details! Read More...

Lady Gaga's third outfit of the night at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards was by far the most ... meaty. Literally. Lady Gaga wore a meat dress, hat, shoes, and purse by designer Franc Fernandez. What was Lady Gaga trying to tell us with this outfit, the look she wore when she proclaimed her next album title on the Video Music Awards stage, "Born This Way"? That the world treats her like a piece of meat? That she's the heartiest person in the whole room? That she could care less about PETA? This meat-as-art is an interesting perspective, one that we've seen before in artist Mark Ryden's work, who painted a picture named "Incarnation" of a girl wearing a meat dress that is similar to Lady Gaga's dress. Do you see the similarity?

+ What do you think is the meaning behind Lady Gaga's meat dress?

One of Lady Gaga's three outfits at tonight's Video Music Awards included a voluminous black dress and matching spiked black headpiece. Well, here's the inside scoop: Designer Giorgio Armani custom-created the look for Lady Gaga's Video Music Awards appearance, and the label sent us a sketch of what the outfit looked like before it was made for Lady Gaga! Isn't it fabulous? The look is a bustier gown with a plunging neckline and a black leather long, full skirt. And her MTV Video Music Awards Moonman for Best Pop Video is definitely the perfect accessory!

Lady Gaga blew us away tonight with her THREE wardrobe changes at the 2010 Video Music Awards. First, she walked the red/white carpet wearing an outfit from the Alexander McQueen fall 2010 with matching Alexander McQueen shoes, which she also wore in her "Bad Romance" video. Then, when Lady Gaga accepted her award for Best Pop Music Video, she changed into a black dress custom-designed by Giorgio Armani. Finally, to accept her award for Video Of The Year, Lady Gaga wore a meat dress by Franc Fernandez (similar to the one she wore on the cover of Vogue Hommes Japan), which left her backside bare. But which one of these Lady Gaga looks was your favorite? Ours has to be the Alexander McQueen dress. It reminded us of her "Bad Romance" video and it was absolutely breathtaking. But what do you think?

+ Which Lady Gaga Look did you like best — red, black, or meaty?
