All you wanna-be-models, here is a once in a life time opportunity for you. Supermodel Naomi Campbell is coming to Australia for the selection of that one face which will stand out from the crowd. Campbell has reportedly struck a deal with Foxtel and Shine Australia for launching her reality TV series “The Face” in Australia.
The 43-year-old model, who still looks great and fit as she was in her 20s, told The Daily Telegraph, that she is keen on the show's Australia debut.
"I'm looking forward to bringing "The Face" to Australia." The show, which is hugely popular in America, is based on the three supermodels mentoring young girls to become a model for a major brand. The U.S. version was hosted by photographer Nigel Barker, along with two other supermodel coaches Karolina Kurkova and Coco Rocha, apart from Campbell herself.
"Having found amazing girls in America and the U.K., I can't wait to see what talent Australia has to offer," she said. The Australian version will not see Karolina Kurkova and Coco Rocha and Campbell is reportedly looking for Australian mentors now.
Campbell is looking for girls who are not only beautiful but also have other qualities like confidence, drive, passions and strong work ethic.
"We're trying to find contestants who have the whole package - a beautiful face, great body, unique look, confidence, drive and passion, the ability to change and transform a willingness to follow direction, and, above all, a strong work ethic."
"The show is a real insight into the modelling world - it's authentic, fast-paced and gives our aspiring models a taste of what it is really like," Campbell added.
Applications are currently open to all females aged between 18 and 30 who are at least 172cm tall. Previous modelling experience is not needed. The deadline for receiving the entries is September 22 and the person who is selected must be available for filming between November 1 and December 4, 2013.
"I can't wait to get to Australia to start my search for The Face! Here I come @FOX8TV #TheFaceAU," Naomi tweeted on Aug 31 to express her excitement. Are you excited too?
