"This is a shout-out - an homage, if you will - to Lady Gaga," said the actress, whose ensemble included sashimi shoe straps and a sushi ring and sunglasses. "I was inspired by her meat dress."

Walsh said she first saw Lady Gaga's dress when a Twitter fan alerted her to a photo of the singer at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards.

"You feel like going fishing?" she joked to host Jay Leno.

Lady Gaga recently caused controversy by wearing her meat outfit, which included a dress, boots and a purse, at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards. She said that she was making a political statement to raise awareness for the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy, which restricts the military from trying to reveal closeted homosexual members and prohibits those who are openly gay.

The animal rights group PETA condemned the singer's dress, as well as a meat bikini she wore on the cover of Vogue Hommes Japan. Lady Gaga said on The Ellen Degeneres Show she did not mean to cause disrespect to vegans or vegetarians by wearing a meat outfit. She later appealed in a video message to fans to ask them to persuade senators to repeal the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy.
