Lady Gaga, dressed like a dog's dinner! But is offal MTV outfit real or fake?

By Rachel Quigley and Daily Mail Reporter

Gutsy: Lady Gaga wore a 'raw meat' outfit to the MTV Video Music Awards, where she picked up eight awards

It's a dress that certainly took some guts to wear.

But the question on everybody's lips after Lady Gaga's appearance in a 'raw meat' outfit at the MTV Video Music Awards was: real or fake?

The singer no doubt planned on causing maximum controversy by wearing the ensemble - including a meat hat and purse - to the Los Angeles event on Sunday night, where she picked up eight awards, the most for any artist in 23 years.

The dress, the work of Los Angeles-based Argentinian designer Franc Fernandez, came just days after Lady Gaga, 24, appeared on the cover of Japanese Vogue in a bikini also apparently made from meat, sparking outrage from animal rights activists.

Cher, who presented Lady Gaga with the most prestigious award of the night, Video of the Year for Bad Romance, also wore a daring outfit.

The 64-year-old recreated the see-through body suit look from her 1989 video If I Could Turn Back Time.

She said: 'I'm the oldest chick with the biggest hair in the littlest costume. Back in the day, I used to get thrown off MTV for wearing things like this that seem so tame now. That's when Lady Gaga was Baby Gaga.'

Lady Gaga also paid tribute to late designer Alexander McQueen by arriving in one of his gowns.

The 24-year-old singer, who won eight Moonman Awards, arrived on the red carpet in a flowing regal McQueen design, comprising gold, orange and green with a Renaissance-style art print on the front and a pair of ankle-breaking Armadillo 12-inch heels by the late designer.

During the ceremony she also wore a black leather creation by Giorgio Armani, before finishing off with her controversial raw meat dress.

As she walked on stage to collect her Video Of The Year award from Cher, Gaga admitted the meat dress was difficult to walk in.

She said: 'This outfit's too heavy to walk in. I apologise if I'm a little slow this evening.'

Lady Gaga later appeared on The Ellen Show still wearing her meaty gown.

And she looked delighted when the host, stern vegan Ellen Degeneres, presented her with a gift of a lettuce bikini to replace it.

Ellen asked Gaga, 'What is the purpose of the meat?'

She replied: 'Well, it is certainly no disrespect to anyone that is vegan or vegetarian. As you know, I am the most judgement-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 own bones. And, I am not a piece of meat.'

Ellen seemed unconvinced by this explanation and presented her with the leafy bikini, much to Gaga's delight.

Ellen said: 'I have a suggestion, next time you want to pose in a bikini somewhere...'

An excited Gaga held up the bikini and said, 'It's fabulous! It's kale! Is it organic?'

Meanwhile Katy Perry dazzled at the MTV Awards in a risqué see-through Marchesa dress with black embroidery detailing to save her blushes.

Describing her outfit, she said: 'I look like an ice skater.'

As she made her arrival on to the white carpet at the Nokia Theatre in downtown Los Angeles, she revealed she had a 'mad cold' and was on antibiotics.

'I'm still here because I'm a pro,' declared 25-year-old Perry.

She also told how she loves awards shows because 'you get free drinks' and 'get to meet your idols' before recalling 'and last year I took home a husband'.

Katy was referring, of course, to husband-to-be Russell Brand who she started dating at last year's VMAs in New York, which he presented.

Making an effort: Katy Perry showed some flesh in her Marchesa mini-dress and Jimmy Choo heels as she admitted she was suffering from a bad cold

Acting up: Katy got into a bit of a mock fight with a spaceman, showing off her slender legs as she did

In homage: Katy had pictures of her husband-to-be Russell Brand, who she met at last year's VMA Awards in New York where he was the host, on her finger nails

He wasn't with her on the white carpet, but was at least in spirit as Katy revealed her nails had pictures of him on them.

Lady Gaga and Perry were among a plethora of artists who took their place on the white carpet amid a frenzy of flashbulbs as an army of screaming fans watched on.

Other artists taking their place included British star Florence and the Machine's Florence Welch, who donned a stunning gold Givenchy dress with a zip down the middle.

Meanwhile U.S. singer Ke$ha slipped into a low-cut metallic black dress which she claimed to have made herself.

Explaining how she made the ensemble, she said: 'I got the garbage bags from Home Depot and I kind of just put it together.'

But it was not only singers making a statement on the white carpet, with a host of faces from the big and small screen.

The Jersey Shore crew were also in full swing, with the likes of JWoww and Sammi leading the gang.

Inside the ceremony it was Taylor Swift and Kanye West's performances which turned out to be the big story of the night.

Many were expecting this year's awards to be the night Taylor got her revenge on Kanye after his highly publicised stage-storming antics of last year.

But the country singer decided not to stoop to conquer, with her highly anticipated song about West serving as an olive branch rather than a slap in the face.

The 20-year-old delivered a poignant and powerful ode at Sunday's ceremony in downtown Los Angeles which, instead of criticising him, sympathised with his difficult time in the spotlight since he infamously gatecrashed her acceptance speech for Best Video saying it should have gone to Beyonce.
