Butchers told the New York Daily News that her expensive tastes didn't extend to the dress: It was made of about $100 worth of meat, almost all cheap cuts.
"There are no expensive cuts here, no real steaks," Yonkers butcher Peter Cacioppo told the newspaper. "The best you've got is the flank steak on top of her head."
The dress ticked off animal rights' groups such as PETA... but it makes for a great photo.
And who isn't Gaga for a good flank steak anyway?
