Fashion designer Ben de Lisi says Lady Gaga's meat dress was 'laughable'

Designer Ben de Lisi believes Lady Gaga's controversial meat dress turned out to be "laughable".

The singer surprised onlookers at the 2010 MTV VMAs by wearing a gown made out of raw meat.

Speaking to Bang Showbiz, fashion man Ben de Lisi said that whilst he applauded Gaga's "bravery", the dress was purely about being an "art installation".

He said: "It's just theatrics, quite frankly. Did I giggle? Yes I giggled. Did I respect it? I respect her bravery. I think much more to the fact that she and her stylist decided to wear prime cut beef in a dress, I mean, that wasn't a dress, it was a costume, it was an installation art that she was part of.

"Fashion is certainly about pushing the boundaries, but there comes a point where it just becomes laughable and I think that's what that was."

De Lisi added: "When she becomes a seasoned woman of a certain age, those photographs of her wearing sirloin meat around her will come back to haunt her. That's her benchmark, she likes to shock. She's just worn recently a body suit - an all in one body suit leotard - with a photograph of the private parts of a black man, which was big and bold and large on her body and I thought that was quite bizarre."
