Lady Gaga's Views On Wearing Kermit The Frog Skin
Sep 17, 2012 - by Samantha Lim
"You see a carcass, I see a museum pièce de résistance", were the words uttered by Lady Gaga this weekend in London at the Phillip Treacy fashion show when asked about her floor sweeping fur caftan that was accessorized with at least half a dozen fur tails. What did she have to say about wearing animals?
"I am choosing not to comment on whether or not the furs I purchase are faux fur-pile or real because I would think it hypercritical not to acknowledge the python, ostrich, cow hide, leather, lamb, alligator, kermit and not to mention meat, that I have already worn. This should already put me in a category as one who appreciates and adores the beauty of animals in fashion, but am not a strict vegan. I have truly always stayed away from skinned fur, especially as I have never been able to afford a nice one, but this does not mean my morals are rigid and that I wont bend at the sight of an absolute art piece of a coat. I have no chains about this."
Here she is opening the Phillip Treacy London Fashion Week Spring 2013 Show:
