Debra Messing was one of the very first celebrities to hit the red carpet. I really am not sure why Debra wore this number; she usually is a knockout. The bodice pleating makes her look twice her size, which is very hard to do on such a thin, well-put-together, lovely lady. The basic black dress features heavy textured detail with a ruched bust and voluminous skirt. The skirt itself looks like it is coming apart, and when comparing it with the original Donna Karan photo shoot of this dress, I have to say, Debra should have put this one back on the hanger and moved on. It makes her look very top heavy, and the absence of a necklace only adds to this.
