Are we still talking about the meat dress Lady Gaga wore at MTV’s Video Music Awards on Sunday? In a word: yes.

It was the hot topic at US Weekly’s 25 Most Stylish New Yorkers bash in New York City this week. Celebrities said Lady Gaga’s outfit was “incredible” and “courageous,” but actress Kristin Chenoweth summed it up when she quipped, “I wouldn’t be caught dead in it, but go girl!

Amid rumors as to its authenticity, the designer of the meat dress, Franc Fernandez, has revealed that the frock is 100% beef. “The dress is indeed real meat from my family butcher,” Fernandez told MTV Style News.

Not surprisingly, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) called the meat dress a “smelly, decomposing flesh dress” that posed a potential health hazard for spreading E. Coli bacteria.

We have to admit: the raw meat dress, while expertly fitted to Lady Gaga’s curves, does look rather gory on the dress form. Silence of the Lambs, anyone?

LOS ANGELES, CA - JUNE 05: Actress Sandra Bullock receives the Troops Choice Award onstage during Spike TV's 4th Annual 'Guys Choice Awards' held at Sony Studios on June 5, 2010 in Los Angeles, California.

For her first professional appearance since the highly-publicized breakup of her marriage to Jesse James, the ever-classy Sandra Bullock chose to wear a sleek, black dress by Elie Saab that hugged her curves, but wasn’t overly sexy.

Bullock appeared Saturday evening at Spike TV’s “Guys Choice Awards,” to accept an award for winner of the “Troops’ Choice” award for entertainer of the year. The Troops’ Choice award is voted on exclusively by members of the military worldwide. It seems that Bullock’s father is a veteran and she wanted to show her support to our troops and appreciation for the award.

Ever the funny gal, Bullock cracked a couple of jokes during her speech.(Video below.)

“Let’s be honest here, just for a moment,” Bullock began, standing on stage flanked by members of the U.S. military. “Did I win this for being entertainer of the year, or did I win this because of the spectacular I.E.D. [improvised explosive device] explosion that became my personal life?”

“You! You!” yelled the crowd, showing their appreciation for Bullock.

Bullock’s black, leather dress is from Elie Saab’s Fall 2010 RTW collection. She paired it with Casadei heels and jewelry by Cartier, reports E! Online.

So who do you think rocked the red carpet at the 61st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards?

I’ve always been a fan of simple and sleek lines, bright colors and great accessories.  I’m all about “less is more”. That seemed to be the theme a lot of designers and celebrities liked too.

Maybe the classic lines and understated details are reaction to these tough economic times. Whatever the reason, this was a very well-dressed group!

I decided to use video instead of pictures, so I’ve linked to a bunch of TV Guide video interviews from last night’s red carpet. You can see them all on TV Guide’s YouTube channel.

Check them out.  Yes, there are some stars and great looks that are missing.

However, if your favorite isn’t here. Let me know who it is!
