Oxygen’s hit fashion reality show The Face, helmed by supermodel Naomi Campbell returns this spring with fresh faces. Joining Naomi are supermodel coaches Anne V and Lydia Hearst, as well as famed fashion photog Nigel Barker as host. This year’s competition is tough but the contestants up for the challenge are some of the best in the industry.
Last week Oxygen hosted a press conference with PopSugar and three of The Face modeltestants for bloggers to discuss New York Fashion Week routines, beauty and workout routines and even shopping on a budget.
Modeltestants Alana Duval, Allison Millar and Felisa Wiley talked about everything from fashion to beauty and held nothing back, except who won, who their coaches were, which designer shows they will be walking in this season and what it takes to be a facemaker.
Of her NYFW routine, Allison told us:
I really just try to stay as healthy as possible like up until a month before casting like really only eating like really fresh food and trying to work out regularly and making sure like my hair, my skin and my nails and everything are really good because almost every Fashion Week I always get sick.
Every model has that one big designer they’d like to walk for. Felisa and Allison gushed over Calvin Klein. Alana added that she would love to walk in a Prada or Alexander McQueen show.
As for their model off duty look, Alana said she adds pops of color to everything she wears, while Felisa loves the New Yorker uniform of all black and opts for oversized sweaters. Alison is obsessed with the short, voluminous A-line skirt and snagged several for fashion week.
The girls were very sweet and as cut throat as the modeling world is, told us they got along with everyone. Now isn’t that swell. Season 2 of Oxygen’s The Face starts Wednesday, March 5th at 10/9c, until then, check out the trailer below.
As a New York Fashion Week veteran, I consider myself a facemaker, a person who amplifies fashion week by bringing readers bird’s eye view of fashion week with insider access to the who’s who in fashion, runway shows, backstage beauty and makeup interviews, celebrity sightings and after parties. Join me this year as I give you even more from street style trends and what it really takes to make it through an entire week of shows. I will be chronicling my adventures from today, Thursday through next week, February 14 of all the fall 2014 shows on Twitter and Instagram. Join in and let’s have some fun during #NYFW.
