NCIS star Pauley Perrette's
pro-gay rights dress is featured in an official NOH8 Campaign photo.
The photo released Sunday features
Perrette modeling the dress – a strapless number that features the NOH8
Campaign's logo on a white background – with her mouth duct taped
and NOH8 written on one cheek.
Perrette debuted the dress earlier this
month at the People's Choice Awards. She said she envisioned the
dress and asked her favorite designer, Terri King, to create it.
“I had an idea for this dress and I
went to my friend Terri King – brilliant designer – and I was
telling her about it and she's like 'Let's do it,'” Perrette told
reporters at the awards show. “And she made it. It's flawless.
It's exactly what I wanted.”
“I'm really, really proud to be
wearing it,” she added.
NOH8 Campaign raises funds and awareness to defeat Proposition 8,
California's gay marriage ban.
Late last year, Perrette
was among the celebrities who spoke out against anti-gay bullying in
a video produced by the NOH8 Campaign.
