We'll give him credit for going for something simple (at least compared with the rest of the collection). We still don't like the dress, though. The fabric is ugly and cheap-looking and we're just not feeling those sleeves.
Again, it's a comparatively simple dress but we hate the fabric. The fit on the bust is tragic and that collar is ugly. It looks like a tumor. Then there's that eye-searing belt. Tacky.
To borrow a word from the Duchess, that bust is insane. Once again, the fabric is ugly and tacky-looking.
Not too bad. He'd have to remove all the trim at the neck and burn that ridiculous bow tied around her like a craft project, but it's got some potential.
Ironically, even though this was the piece that got him auf'd, it's the best piece in his collection. All the original criticisms still apply - the bust is weird, tacky and unflattering, the tulle looks dirty - but it's beautifully constructed. It reminds us quite a bit of the Vivienne Westwood wedding gown SJP wore in Sex and the City (although we hated that gown).
It's because he showed talent during the competition that this collection comes as something of a shock to us. Clearly, the one thing Jerell needs to learn is how to edit but we have to say, there's a taste issue as well. It's not just that he used too much trim; it's that the trim he used was ugly and tacky. We have to add that his color and fabric choices were terrible as well. Those deep purples and irridescent dark greens aren't very pretty when paired together and they strike us as about a decade and a half out of style.
