Debra Messing at the Crystal + Lucy Awards

Debra Messing pauses for photographers as she enters the 2010 Crystal + Lucy Awards, held at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Century City, California. The date was June 1, 2010. Debra Messing is probably still best-known for her long run as Grace Adler in the TV sitcom Will and Grace, which ran from 1998–2006 and later returned from 2017–2020. She was born in 1968, so she turned 42 the year this photo was taken. The awkward name of "Crystal + Lucy Awards" is because the ceremony actually included a conglomeration of awards for women in media: the Crystal Award and the Lucy Award, plus the MaxMara Face of the Future Award, the Kodak Vision Award, and the Dorothy Arzner Directors Award.
