NEW YORK (CBS) In a weird case of one-up-manship, actress Eva Longoria Parker poked fun at Lady Gaga's world-famous meat dress Sunday night by strolling onstage at the MTV European Music Awards 2010, in Madrid, dressed like a piece of ham.

Billed as her Spanish ham dress, the costume looked like a leg of cured ham, with only Longoria's head peeking out over the top.

"Lady Gaga couldn't be here tonight but she left this dress backstage," joked Longoria. "Who knew Spanish ham was one of my colors?"

The flamboyant pop singer, known for outrageous outfits, made headlines around the world in September when she wore a meat dress -- made entirely of raw steak - to the MTV music awardsin the U.S.

Lady Gaga was on tour Sunday and accepted her awards via videotape Sunday night.

The ham frock was one of a string of costumes that Longoria wore in her role as ceremony host. They included a magenta tuxedo jacket, a shoulderless mini dress, a layered satin gown and a black bustier and mini-shorts.
