Naomi Campbell Takes The Face Across The Pond With New Coaches

Earlier this year, Naomi Campbell entered Tyra Banks territory and started her own modeling competition, The Face. She even snagged up ANTM refugee Nigel Barker to host her Oxygen reality show. While it wasn’t a ratings juggernaut, it received positive reviews and was renewed for a second season. Personally, I loved it. Truth be told, I’d watch anything where Naomi Campbell shows off her beautiful BRF (bitchy resting face).

With Barker in tow, the legendary supermodel takes her show across the pond for a UK version. Taking over for Coco Rocha and Karolina Kurkova who sat alongside her on the US version, are British model Erin O’Connor and Swedish stunner Caroline Winberg. The three supermodel coaches will chose four girls each to mentor.

Over eight weeks, the three teams will compete in a series of real life fashion industry challenges for some of Britain’s best known brands including Marks & Spencer, i-D magazine and much more. The winner will become the face of Max Factor. The competition starts on Monday, September 30 on Sky Living. Check out the trailer below.

    They’ve announced an Australian version too with Naomi too. Imagine Elle Macpherson and Miranda Kerr… they wish.

    An aussie version would be AMAZING. Australia’s next top model always have great girls and they’re pretty feisty themselves, imagine them under Naomi’s coaching!!

    Though I still can’t get over The Face US and Coco Rocha not winning a single challenge. That was humiliating and totally staged imho. Coco was robbed big time. Wouldn’t they have mentioned the mentor’s name when judging and Naomi wouldn’t have won so many challenges. Coco always took risks. Naomi girls were Awful Guetto Girl Tyra ANTM style Sandra, Dumb asian girl 1, dumb tall asian girl 2 (though cute, the hubby robber), and one I can’t even remember.

    I hope she doesn’t set up this Face too..

    I love all of them, Erin O’connor is just beyond this world, she has walked for every major designer on this planet and is uber-elegant, Caroline Winberg is charming and stunning…and Naomi…she’s the queen… period.
