Next Top Modelling Show: Naomi to launch new reality series

Naomi Campbell is set to make her first foray onto the small screen with a starring role on a modelling show entitled The Face.

She will follow in the footsteps of her fellow 'supers' Elle Macpherson and Tyra Banks by mentoring up-and-coming young models on a TV series.

The 41-year-old will coach a group of unknown models through assignments including photo shoots, runway shows and commercials.


One girl will eventually be crowned The Face of a ‘major national brand’.

In a press release, Naomi said she was excited to "discover the next beautiful face of the modelling world".

She added: ”With The Face the audience will get a real insider's look at this exciting industry that has been so good to me."

The show is similar in format to the wildy successful America’s Next Top Model, the show headed up by media mogul Tyra.


The news comes just days after Tyra revealed she had parted ways with her three fellow panellists on ANTM — Nigel Barker, Jay Manuel and J Alexander — reportedly in a bid to spice up the show's format.

The Face will air on America’s Oxygen network and is set to launch in 2013.
