Jerell is the team leader and is the last designer to select a teammate, so he is paired with the last designer standing, Stella. Jerell was in his prime, but Stella was thrown, once again, by the design context. Luckily, Jerell allowed her to stay within her comfort zone by giving her the assignment of the wide mustard leather ("lethuh") waistband with a smaller over-belt in zebra. This was over a full A-line skirt in a charcoal print and a dark taupe top with a sexy scooped neckline. Brooke loved the top and the skirt, but hated (her word) the waistband. Still, the look was sexy without being even remotely vulgar and it was tres chic.
