Lady Gaga's Meat Dress: Celebs Weigh In

'She's a courageous chick,' Mary J. Blige said at New York fashion event.

Tongues are still wagging over [artist id="3061469"]Lady Gaga's[/artist] BBQ-defying meat dress from Sunday's Video Music Awards, and it seems everyone has an opinion on the flesh frock. So who better to weigh in on Lady Gaga's look than the honorees at US Weekly's 25 Most Stylish New Yorkers event in New York City? While many stars lauded the "Bad Romance" singer for her sartorial bravery, most added that they'd never actually don such a rare outfit.

"I thought: courageous," host Mary J. Blige said with a laugh when asked her opinion of Lady Gaga's meat dress. "She's a courageous chick."

Actress and frequent "Glee" guest star Kristin Chenoweth couldn't have agreed more. "I thought it was incredible," she said. "Actually it was an incredible design. I wouldn't be caught dead in it, but go girl!"

One lucky celeb got to see -- and smell -- Franc Fernandez's design up close and personal. "I was sitting right behind her [at the VMAs]," record producer Sean Garrett said. "That's probably the best-smelling meat [I've ever smelled]."

One person not coveting Garrett's prime seat was talk-show host Wendy Williams. "I wouldn't have been the one wanting to sit next to her," she said. "With the hot lights and the hot skin, she was actually sizzling right there, and I understand she has a line of perfume coming out, and that would smell like A1 Sauce."

Though most celebrities found Gaga's get-up humorous, "The City" star and People's Revolution owner Kelly Cutrone was introspective, saying she found the frock frivolous in light of global hunger issues. "I personally think it's not a good idea when people are starving in the world," she said about food as fashion. "One person's dress is another person's dinner."
