Dress Dilemma

A good friend of mine, and maybe someday a family member *wink*, is on a mission to find a fabulous dress for a formal event. She sent the following message:

I am going to a formal event (cocktail dresses to formal gowns are the norm). I would like something that I could also wear to a wedding, any suggestions? I am clueless, other than I know low cut in the ...front does NOT work. I am not sure what is my favorite. I am a little tired of black, but will do it if it is "fun". I have a nice butt, and nice shoulders, no boobs, and hate flowery patterns unless it is a great fabric (like silk). floor length or above the knee works....I have been thinking about a catsuit (do they still call them that?) but think I might be too short. Wow!!! I am so confused....help!!!!

This is my favorite kind of request! Let's get to work! The following are suggestions for my dear friend, and I hope she loves them!
