The Face.

With viewer figures dwindling over on America's Next Top Model, a rival reality TV show has been announced. And the spearhead of the show is none other than Tyra Banks' nemesis: Naomi Campbell. The Face is a show unlike ANTM for a key reason. Each judge will mentor a group of contestants through different modelling challenges, according to reports.

So who are the superstar judges? Well as stated previously, Naomi Campbell will front the show and be one of the judges/mentors. But joining her are another two supermodels of different eras: Karolina Kurkova and Coco Rocha. It has also been suggested that ANTM veteran Nigel Barker will present the show. And so, I feel a mini profile on each judge/mentor is needed. I mean, who's team would you want to be on?

Naomi Campbell
Age: 42
Height: 5ft 9.5in
Career: Scouted at the age of 16, Naomi's career quickly took off with the cover of British Elle. She then bacame part of the 'Trinity' alongside Christy Turlington and Linda Evangelista - the most in demand trio that the modelling world had ever seen. As a black model, Naomi broke many barriers including: the first black model on American Vogue's September issue, she appeared on the cover of British Vogue, as that publication's first black cover girl since 1966 and in August 1988, she became the first black model to appear on the cover of French Vogue. After more than two decades modelling, Naomi Campbell is still in demand for brands such as Pinko and Dolce & Gabbana.

Karolina Kurkova
Age: 28
Height: 5ft 11in
Career: This Czech model started at the top: American Vogue. She landed the cover at the age of 17 and has been working ever since. Following her Vogue cover, Kurkova became a regular at the Haute Couture fashion shows. Most notable however is her work with Victoria's Secret with whom she was a model from 2000-2008 and an angel from 2005-2008. She wore the diamond fantasy bra 'Hearts on fire' with a net worth of $6.5 million in the 2006 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. Kurkova still works today landing the Spring Summer 2011 Bottega Veneta campaign.

Coco Rocha
Age: 23
Height: 5ft 10in
Career: The youngest of the judges, Coco was discovered whilst Irish dancing in her native Canada. When she began moelling, she had little knowledge of the industry or of fashion. She eventually gained insight into the fashion world after her best friends crammed in fashion study sessions in between studying for school exams. Rocha's career really started with the cover of Vogue Italia in February 2006 shot by Steven Meisel. She then went on to book numerous runway shows and even opened the Jean Paul Gaultier Autumn/Winter 2007 show by Irish dancing down the catwalk. Coco is still a firm favourite with many designers and is the face of Yves Saint Laurent's fragrance: Elle.
