Lady Gaga`s meat dress is a Halloween hit

New York: She may have earned plenty of flak for wearing it, but Lady Gaga`s controversial meat dress has become the most sought after Halloween costume.

The creation, which she wore to the MTV Video Awards, was made from six pieces of sewn-together steak teamed with a matching meat hat and bag.

Butchers in the US are being inundated with requests to make versions, reported New York Post online.

Ben Turley, the owner of NYC`s Brooklyn Kitchen, says a piece of meat couture would cost up to USD 2,000 and should be made from the leanest cuts of meat.

The dress also comes with a warning. It may fall apart and should be worn for only three hours.

"After that the dress is going to get wet and really smelly," said Turley.
