Did you watch modeling competition “The Face”? I have a couple of episodes to catch up on — so don’t tell me who won! — but it’s so much fun to watch — mainly because Naomi Campbell is a bit batcrackers, and fellow judges/coaches Coco Rocha and Karolina Kurkova play such good straight women to Campbell’s attendant rage problems. Anyway! I like this layered look from Kurkova. She’s channeling a bit of a witchy vibe, especially with those what-look-like Rick Owens boots and brimmed hat. Best of all, despite her being a supermodel, I feel like regular ladies could pull of this look, too. [Photo: Pacific Coast News]
Have you been watching “The Face”? If not, check it out. It’s a modeling competition, yes, but unlike any others out there. Each contestant is paired with a mentor — Karolina Kurkova, Coco Rocha or Naomi Campbell — and competes against models on the other mentor’s teams. The challenges are real world and the products, stylists and brands the girls work with are first rate, unlike some (ahem) other, jankier reality TV model competitions.
So far in the season, the group of 12 girls has been whittled down to six — Stephanie, Margaux, Jocelyn, Zi Lin, Ebony and Devyn. The Frisky was lucky enough to speak with Jocelyn of Team Naomi, Stephanie of Team Coco and Ebony of Team Karolina, and while they wouldn’t answer questions about Naomi’s temper tantrums, (which really says it all, eh?), they did give us the scoop on challenges, eliminations — and what Nigel Barker really smells like.
And don’t forget to catch “The Face,” Tuesday nights at 9/8 c on Oxygen.

If you, like us, have been feeling like the latter seasons of “America’s Next Top Model” have been a little gimmicky and lackluster, well, we’ve got a new show for you — one with three times the Tyra Banks star power. “The Face” is a modeling competition show, but unlike “ANTM,” the models will be split into teams, coached and trained by supermodels Naomi Campbell, Coca Rocha or Karolina Kurkova. Plus, it’s hosted by Noted Fashion Photographer (and baby seal enthusiast) Nigel Barker, so what’s not to love? In any case, Naomi, Nigel and the gang premiere tonight at 10/9 c on Oxygen. We’ll be watching/gawking.
Admit it: “America’s Next Top Model” has gotten stale over the last five zillion “cycles.” As much as we love Tyra there’s only so much of her histrionics and ridiculous, over-the-top photoshoots (Be a bear! Pose with a tarantula! In the snow!) we can take. And the Oxygen network is banking on that, by introducing its new modeling reality show, “The Face.” Hosted by “ANTM” castoff Nigel Barker, and featuring Tyra Banks’ evil cousin Naomi Campbell, plus modelstars Karolina Kurkova, and Coco Rocha, “The Face” has 24 contestants competing to become the new face of Ulta beauty.
