Debra Messing attended the launch for Post-It’s new anti-bullying campaign, held at New York City’s PS 15 Roberto Clemente Elementary School on Wednesday afternoon.

The actress showed of the ever-popular fit-and-flare silhouette wearing a Rafael Cennamo Fall 2012 cocktail dress.

The pewter-and-black dress features an interesting play on the classic houndstooth print in a metallic jacquard.

Simple black pumps and signature red waves complete the look.

Do you love this metallic look, or is it a bit too much for the casual daytime event?
