Despite the tears, door-slamming and name-calling (eh hem, Naomi Campbell) on "The Face," there are lighter occasions on set, too. Yeah, yeah, we know, the drama is what sucks you in, but don't make the mistake of thinking the laughs aren't just as fun. For instance, these goof-off moments shared between host Nigel Barker and model mentor Karolina Kurkova in episode four. Who you lookin' at, Karolina?
We know, first you want to get a closer look how Karolina's working that amazing sequined blazer, right? Well, happy birthday:
Italian designer Roberto Cavalli (of course) makes bold prints and glimmering sequins work elegantly together with this black-piped tuxedo blazer. Karolina makes the layering piece the focal point of her outfit by pairing with a simple black Monika Chiang tank and minimalist Helmut Lang lean tapered trousers. She sneaks in a little extra flair with black studded pumps.
Nigel opts for business casual again in a Rag & Bone zip up knit over an APC blue button down and a three-toned Top Man tie. His blue chinos are by Marc by Marc Jacobs and two-toned suede chukkas are from Co-Op.
So in what looks like some sort of quick-change runway challenge, Karolina magically changes into a hot LWD by sprightly former "Project Runway" winner Christian Siriano. (Was that a designer breakaway outfit she had on earlier?) But not before veteran fashion photographer Nigel shows her how its done.
You want a piece of this?
Check it. Wonder how Lady J would rate this runway walk?
Aaaand while Nigel isn't looking, Karolina takes the bag back.
Tune into "The Face" this February to see what other hijinks these two high-fashion jokers are up to!
