THE DRAGON LADY
A friend of mine named this dress Octopussy due to the carefully placed, tentacle-like embellishment just below the crotch. Another bad-in-hindsight option was Chase the Dragon. I went with Dragon Lady, a derogatory name for a female boss, in an attempt to reclaim it and associate this sequin-adorned, velvet gown with the untameable charisma of those creatures everyone pretends don't exist.
