In the upcoming "The Face" casting special airing on Tues., Feb. 5, 9/8c, all of the model contestants get a special treat: A runway lesson from the master of the catwalk, Naomi Campbell. Let the Queen of the Runway show you how it's done.
It's an art form. You don't just launch into the walk without a verbal briefing on the technique first. The contestants are listening with both rapt anticipation and for some, pure glee.
Aaaand the flawless start. The all-Alaïa outfit is just the cherry on top.
The girls are having a near religious experience as Naomi nears the end of the catwalk—which is where the runway model dramatically pauses and poses for her photo moment.
And Naomi's signature runway stop that ignited a million flash bulbs: The quick turn, hip tilt and one leg out stance. (Angelina so totally ripped that off!) And the crowd goes wild with applause.
