This fluorescent orange Stephen Sprouse strapless pailette dress is very evocative of Marc Jacobs recent Fall 2009 high-octane fashion show which celebrated 80s New York and had a large dose of Sprouse influence. It's great to reference the past in contemporary designs, but its also fun to wear an original. Here is a dress that makes us nostalgic for Dianne Brill and her curvaceous body and bold peroxide blond hair that earned her the title of "Queen of the Night." Although she may be more synonymous with the vampy designs of Thierry Mugler than Sprouse (we will post a great Mugler spider web gown in the next few days), we think Ms. Brill could fill this dress with her seductive proportions. After all, it was mannequin impresario Adel Rootstein who called Ms. Brill "The Shape of the Decade" when he made a form in her form.

Ms. Brill may be the shape of the decade, but we look forward to discovering who will be the Shape of Decades and fill this glowing dress.
