Anyone in the mood for a steak? In case you were wondering what’s happened to Lady Gaga‘s meat dress from the VMAs last week, there’s good news and bad news.

The good news is that the dress, made from 50 pounds of flank steak by the Argentinian designer Franc Fernandez, has not been thrown away, or given to a pack of hungry dogs. The bad news is that it will likely not be eaten by anyone. Instead, the dress will go through a process to turn the beef into jerky and be archived for posterity. 

“The meat dries out, rather than rotting,” he told MTV Style. “But it shouldn’t be worn again.” Gaga will also be the last to wear such an edible garment. "There’s not going to be meat dresses in the future,” he said. “This was made for a specific purpose. It’s what it is.” –AMY LEE
