Project Runway All Stars spotlight: Jerell Scott
The designer returns to the runway, but has his flashy style evolved?
All that glitters is not gold, at least not when it came to the couture created by Jerell Scott on season five of Project Runway. The former fashion model turned glitter-loving designer was sent packing, narrowly missing a spot in the top three and the chance to show during fashion week in New Yorkas a finalist.
Originally from Houston, Texas, Scott began his career as a fashion model before trying his hand at design. He found inspiration in clothing that he loved, but that was often too expensive for him to afford, so the model decided to create similar looks for less.
Since appearing on Project Runway, Scott partnered with Heidi and Heather Palmer to create a line of hair accessories called True Birds. Fans of the hair accessories include several A-list celebrities including Taylor Swift, Hilary Duff, Rihanna and Ke$ha.
Scott's designs are often flashy, courtesy of his intricate craftsmanship and unique eye for details. There is no doubt that his eclectic style makes for great television, but is that enough for him to be the last designer standing on Project Runway All Stars? So far, Scott hasn't won any of the first four challenges, and his looks haven't been too impressive.
Stealing the spotlight so far has been Michael Costello, who is on fire this season with two wins under his belt already. Austin Scarlett, Mondo Guerra and Rami Kashou have been creating some beautiful designs as well, and it looks like Scott is in for some fierce competition.
Has Scott finally learned to tone down the glitter and give the judges what they want? Tune into Project Runway All Stars on Lifetime Thursdays at 9/8 central and find out.
