Just as The Voice gave a shot of adrenaline to the singing competition genre, The Face aims to give the modeling competition space, to this point dominated by America’s Next Top Model, a high-heeled kick in the ass. And with supermodel Naomi Campbell heading the cast of celeb judges, the series, airing on Oxygen in the U.S., is boldly staking its claim for top competition on the catwalk. Campbell is joined by top models Karolina Kurkova and Coco Rocha, and together, they each mentor teams to find the girl who will become “The Face” for beauty retailer Ulta Beauty.
