It's a special year for Newsday's Project Prom.
The Carbone Quintuplets of Old Brookville -- believed to be the first Long Island quintuplets ever -- are this year's Project Prom p-e-o-p-l-e.
Austin, Brianna, Francesca, Brandon and Marissa, were born in exactly that order on Sept. 8, 1993. On June 21, the fab five, now 18 and seniors at Locust Valley High School, all will attend their prom at the Woodbury Country Club.
The siblings went on a shopping fest at the New York City showroom of BCBGMAXAZRIA, where each of the three girls selected two primo choices for the prom.
Now it's your turn, readers, to decide which dress each of them should wear on their big night.

Vote on Marissa's dresses.
Vote on Brianna's dresses.
Vote on Francesca's dresses.
