After Lady Gaga made a shocking appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards in her raw meat outfit, New York butchers were asked to identify cuts of beef on her dress. And here’s what they had to say.



"It's all beef," the New York Daily News quoted Peter Cacioppo, 50, of Yonkers, head butcher at Ottomanelli Brothers on the upper East Side, as saying.



"Her bodice looks like the outside of the rib. Over the shoulder looks like it does come from the shoulder," he said.



Cacioppo, a butcher for 35 years, wasn't impressed with Gaga's fleshy frock, which she paired with a hat, shoes and bag made of raw meat.

"There are no expensive cuts here, no real steaks. "The best you've got is the flank steak on top of her head," he said.



His nephew, who works with him behind one of the city's top meat counters, said about 25 pounds of meat went into the carnivore couture.



"It's the cheaper end cuts - not including her. You got about 100 dollars of meat there," said Mark Cacioppo, 30, of Queens.

"It ain't refrigerated. It's probably stinking bad. She's in the lights: It's cooking," said Peter Cacioppo.

Late Monday, LA-based designer Franc Fernandez said it took him two days to stitch the dress out of flank steak - what they call "matambre" in his native Argentina.

"The meat was from my family butcher," he said.

Gaga's antics helped Sunday's telecast draw an estimated 11.4 million viewers, according to the Nielsen Co, its best showing since 2002.
