Until this week. Last night Pauley Perrette, star of NCIS, took the image to the People’s Choice Awards, front and center. Literally. (stylebistro)
On the red carpet at the 2011 award show, Pauley stepped out in a corseted, asymmetric wedding gown emblazoned with a familiar logo: NOH8, the emblem of the LA-based NOH8 Campaign that works to bring celebrity support of marriage equality into the public eye.Although NCIS did not win Favorite TV Crime Drama, Pauley’s stance has, I’m sure, led the way for significantly more prominent visibility of this image in the future. I doubt many more dresses will take such a visible interpretation, but NO H8 will likely soon be assured a comfortable lapel home on many a talk show or interview.
When asked about the PC look, the 41-year-old actress, who incidentally married boyfriend Michael Bosman last Valentine’s Day, said she had the idea and immediately phone her stylist, Teri King. She paired the thought-provoking gown with her signature bangs, a bright red pucker and, as she said, her heart on her sleeve. Props, Pauley! You officially rock.
