Aug 14, Carol Hannah Whitfield '07 rose from relative anonymity to full-blown “People are going to start looking for cookie crumbs in their dresses,” says Logan. Whitfield, a top-three finalist on the sixth season of Project Runway. Oct 26, True/Slant's Allison Kilkenny is accusing Project Runway of have played up the flirtation between Carol Hannah and Logan in season 6, but. Project Runway's Carol Hannah says she didn't think she would win, reveals what she's up to now, and talks about flirting with Logan.|Project Runway|Carol.
And then, in a Very Special Moment that actually almost makes me cry, seeing as I've just watched The Office wedding and I'm all mushy, Gordana says that since she herself has been divorced, she needs to be mentally strong going into the challenge.
We see her on the phone with I think her new partner, and her voice cracks as she tells him to tell her kids that she loves them. I have just decided that I want her to win it all. Tim comes back to make his rounds. Chris is making a silver bubble dress with a black-and-white floral belt. Of Epperson's garment, Tim says, "It looks lab coat-y," and seriously, it seems that Epperson has somehow confused his divorcee with Beaker from the Muppets. Logan is struggling with a pair of pants and a weird, corseted top which seem to disgust Tim, but Gordana's is a lovely plum sheath dress that gets high marks.
Shirin has decided to ignore her model's requests and make a more modest party dress with a black belt and intricate stitching. Tim applauds her decision not to recreate a Cher costume, but Shirin is still worried, and starts to cry. Carol Hannah interviews that Logan is freaking out, but Logan's freak-out face is the same beautiful, blank canvas as all of his other faces.
Can we see that bacon again? I think it's the chipper way he says it, as if, instead of ambling around in high-waisted jeans they're going to come in dancing the Continental like in The Gay Divorcee. Not that a divorced woman can't be happy and glamorous, but I think they're trying too hard to make that point, so it veers into sad and awkward territory.
For the most part, the women seem pleased with their garments, although Shirin's model clearly wanted something slinkier. Shirin dons her yarmulke-like Peter Pan hat sorry, babe, no matter how often you wear it it's not going to become the Kenley headband of this season and Epperson interviews that he's not completely confident in his dress. Don't fuck this up.
The model-vorcees return to the workroom to get their final fittings. Epperson's model loves the dress, which is sort of kimono-esque but with stark black lines on the bodice that remind me of gaffer's tape. Althea's model is so happy she actually cries. Shirin's model doesn't really like her dress, but as Shirin made abundantly clear, she really doesn't care.
Christopher's model is also kind of appalled, but puts on her game face also, you know why I think she looks so cougar-y?
Her face is permanently contorted into Blue Steel from Zoolander.

Nic hates the garment he's made, with consists of pants and a strange, lacey vest, but his model loves it. Logan is frantically rushing to finish his pants, and Irina interviews that they look awful. BTW, in a cute flashback, we see that the Models of the Runway -- who had nothing to do this week but drink seriously, that is my whole recap of the model show -- taught the divorcees how to walk. Nic's woman says that in order to look like a real model you just "look like you're better than everyone and look really pissed off.
Out on the runway, Heidi introduces the judges. MK is still in the house this week, having faded from atomic orange to a relatively healthy peach color, but in place of Nina Garcia we once again have the delicate blond fashion editor of Marie Claire, who reminds me of Emily Mortimer's "bird bones" character on 30 Rock.
Tamara Mellon of Jimmy Choo rounds out the bunch. Here come the brides, y'all. And this is really beautiful. You may make it to Fashion Week but you cannot win.
You will ruin my theories!
I love the dusky purple color. This was my favorite of the bunch, which inevitably means that it won't be in the top three. The blouse is no doubt a discarded top from a disgruntled St. What were you thinking? You didn't even give her pockets, and where else is she going to hide the flask of gin she needs to wear this out in public?

- Project Runway Episode 8 Recap: Gay Divorcees
I feel like there's a magical circle of references in this week's episode It's so similar to Carol Hannah's in shape and color that it's hard for me to love it completely, but I dig the fan-like pattern and the rock n' roll styling. NIC You can tell Nic's divorcee loves this, and that does count for a lot, although for me this is an unremarkable, fairly frumpy ensemble that one could easily put together from any Joyce Leslie sale rack.
This dress reminds me of Spirographs, which I forgot existed and, oh, the joy it brings me to remember them. I tip my obnoxious twee yarmulke to you. Like, if they had to source materials from a Red Cross outreach center and Chris grabbed a bunch of those emergency blankets favored by marathoners. He's been so strong this season, I'm not sure why his model ended up looking like a streetwalker who goes by the name Jiffy Pop.Project Runway: Logan Neitzel Video Blog (S6, E10) - Lifetime
But there you have it. If Chris doesn't get it back together next week, I think he's a goner. After the show, Heidi calls the following designers forward: Carol Hannah, Nic, and Althea. They are obviously safe. The judges love Gordana's punky number, which they think shows that she took a risk, as well as Irina's chic age-appropriate dress. Surprisingly, they also like Shirin's ode to Spirographs, and commend her for not fulfilling her model's dreams of looking quite literally like someone who believes in life after love.
And now, for the vitriol: Of Christopher's dress, Michael Kors says she "looks like tinfoil," and Tamara Mellon agrees that there's "too much crumple. When Epperson says that his model might wear the dress on a date, MK says "Her date is leaving. Logan's awful blouse gets more Oktoberfest comparisons, and Tamara Mellon declares the pants "a tragedy.
Shirin is in, and Gordana This fills me with a glee that will ultimately prove short-lived see below. Irina is in, which leaves Christopher, Logan, and Epperson. Chris is in, being the lessest of three evils hmmm, that doesn't work. Now, I know what's going to happen but I can't accept it.
As much as I love Epperson, he's been struggling all along, with really only the one bright spot during the movie challenge and even that he didn't win. Logan, on the other hand, has been relatively under the radar but usually impressive, plus everyone wants to bone him so I think he's good for morale.
No matter what this elimination sucks. Heidi rehashes the Oktoberfest hatefest, and then says "Logan Hilariously, an email from my mom popped into my Blackberry at midnight. When asked if the collection was from her senior project in design school, Carol Hannah laughed: Three weeks later, she got the call.
She was going to be on Project Runway. She had to keep the news to herself. Aside from her parents, sister and one friend, no one else could know the outcome of the audition. That meant she had to lie, sometimes dozens of times a day.
She had moved, but she had also spent several of those missing months filming the show in Los Angeles. That would have been tough — to do something so difficult and do well and not be able to tell anyone? If she let the secret slip to just one other person?
According to her contract, she would owe Lifetime one million dollars. It was definitely an incentive to keep the secret — and it might not have been a big deal if the show had aired when it was scheduled to, shortly after it was filmed. Eventually, however, the wait was over.
The legal dispute was resolved, and finally Carol Hannah could make her life-altering announcement. The word was out: Carol Hannah Whitfield was on the show. But can we please talk about the more important fact that Harry Potter comes out in less than a week?!
Still, footage of Carol Hannah was relatively sparse in the first few episodes: She may not have had formal training or a ton of experience, but Carol Hannah had what it takes:
