It’s Kenley, Bitch.
Jerell had the easiest time of it this challenge. Partially because he had a pretty model that could pull off the look he was assigned (unlike most of the designers) and partly because the look he was assigned was the broadest and the easiest to pull off.
You say “pop” and that can mean a lot of easily identifiable looks. Jerell chose the Britney/Pussycat Dolls look. It’s not one we would have chosen, but we can’t blame him for going there.
His instincts were, for the most part, good. He pulled off a look that had a slutty vibe and showed a decent amount of skin but also kept her covered up enough so as not to look vulgar.
Personally, we don’t LOVE the look but we think he nailed it nonetheless. He would have been our pick for the winner. Not because it was the most inventive look – far from it – but because it was the most recognizable.
You couldn’t really picture any artists from other musical genres wearing the other designers’ outfits but you could instantly picture Britney in this.
That’s not exactly a check in the “creative’” column for Jerell but it does speak to his practical sense.
As does the choice NOT to use this hideous fabric. Seriously, girl. You had us worried there for a second.
Say what you will about Kenley (god knows we have), but she’s got the bland pretty looks and the youth (not to mention body) to pull off a Britney pastiche fairly well. Jerell understood that so he went for the most obvious choice.
And we really can’t fault him for that but we do have criticisms.
The little vest looked a little too Sonny Bono for us. The way the skirt turns into the collar wasn’t all that flattering to her midsection and made it look a little thick.
And the cups didn’t look they were capable of supporting anything; they just looked tacked on. He’s lucky his model was perky enough (boobs, not personality) to pull that off.
