Coco Rocha and Karolina Kurkova recruited for Naomi Campbell's new TV show
Naomi Campbell has finally revealed the two other big names to be recruited for her forthcoming TV show, The Face. The British supermodel has signed up Coco Rocha and Karolina Kurkova to coach aspiring models on the new reality television series.
Although it isn't set to air until 2013, Campbell is currently casting wannabe models across America, with an LA casting scheduled for this weekend. Naomi, along with Coco and Karolina, will then take their three teams of aspiring models through challenges including catwalk shows, photo-shoots and commercials to weed out the best from the bunch.
"I am looking forward to working in partnership with Oxygen and Shine America to discover the next beautiful face of the modelling world," Naomi said in a press release back in May. "With The Face the audience will get a real insider's look at this exciting industry that has been so good to me. One lucky girl will become the face of a major brand."
"SO HAPPY to tell you, along with Naomi Campbell & Karolina Kurkova I will be one of three model mentors on 'The Face'!" Rocha tweeted.
"Naomi, Karolina and I will be introducing the girls to some of the very best photographers, stylists and designers in the fashion world," she also posted on her blog. "As mentors to the girls we hope to impart valuable lessons and skills that will help them through their challenges, giving them an accurate idea of what it takes to have a career as a model and be the face of a brand."
The Face will be hosted by fashion photographer Nigel Barker, who was formerly a judge on America's Next Top Model. The show will be broadcast on America's Oxygen Network, who also happen to be the same team behind ANTM.
Hmm... I wonder what Tyra Banks makes of all of this.
