Canary Yellow in Fall?????

Greetings Fashion Feens,

I'm a little on the fence with French model Noemie Lenoir's look she wore to the 12th Annual ACE Awards the other night. I mean, I love the dress by Rachel Roy, but I'm not sure about the color choice. I know fashion and style doesn't really have any hardcore rules (except choose clothes that are your one's looking at your tags) but I was sure that jewel colors were the "brights" to guard against the winter blues, not canary yellow! What do you guys think? I think she looks lovely regardless but I would have saved this choice for Spring '09.
