Naomi Campbell Takes The Face Across The Pond
Vogue UK writes that the super is working on a British version of the show for Sky Living, and that she will remain as the show’s executive producer, mentor, and judge. The other two judges have yet to be announced, and there haven’t been any details about Coco Rocha, Karolina Kurkova, and Nigel Barker’s roles so, uh, that’s awkward.
“Bringing the show over from the US is a real honour and it’s great to be working with Princess Productions and Shine TV. UK talent is world class, so I’m really looking forward to uncovering our next rising star. The show is a real insight into the modelling world – it’s authentic and fast-paced.”
Auditions are currently being held in the UK, and female models 18 and over can apply by emailing email@example.com.
As much as we hate to make comparisons, especially since we’re talking about Naomi Campbell here, is the supermodel trying to pull a Tyra Banks and Heidi Klum with her latest media move? America’s Next Top Model and Project Runway started out in the states and made waves internationally. Will The Face be able to do the same? Guess we’ll have to wait and find out.
In the meantime, check out an interview with Rocha on the current season stateside:
