Logan Neitzel, Season 6

"Dirty pretty" is how Neitzel describes his spring 2011 collection. It's a look similar to the designer himself. The heartthrob of season six still fights rumors of a romance with designer Carol Hannah Whitfield (the two share a studio in NYC). "It wasn't a negative," he says of the portrayal. But now it's his work that's wooing the ladies.

Carol Hannah Whitfield, Season 6
After the show finale, the Charleston, South Carolina, gal moved to NYC and set up shop with fellow PR designer Logan Neitzel (see above). "We're just friends," she insists.
Starting in December, her comfy draped jersey dresses will be sold exclusively at Bella Bridesmaids stores. Brides-to-be can pick up a Whitfield original at carol-hannah.com.

Mychael Knight, Season 3
He counts Michelle Williams and Jennifer Hudson among his fans and has his own unisex fragrance, MajK. But what Knight is most excited about is the Two2—a signature dress unveiled at New York Fashion Week in September. "It's for me what the wrap dress is for Diane von Furstenberg," he says. The best part: The versatile frock will cost less than $100.

Chris March, Season 4
March has parlayed his lovable personality and costume skills into the self-published book I Heart Chris March, a line of greeting cards, and a forthcoming TV show. But the PR alum and All-Star Challenge contestant isn't all outrageous. Meryl Streep personally requested that he design her dresses for both the 2010 Golden Globes and Academy Awards.
