Judges’ Rating: 3/5
Judges’ Comments: “There are some good elements here but a bit of editing would help. I LOVE the bodice. The rock n’ roll black leather with gold stud corset top is awesome and I can see how this would be a Prom favorite and give Dads across the country a heart-attack. I am not loving the spider web fabric underneath the tulle. Too cheesy and it takes away from the top (which should be the only focal point). With a bit of editing, I think this would be a great dress for the 16-24 set.” – Cynthia Smoot
