Oxygen's The Face returns for a second season on Wednesday, March 5 at 10pm ET/PT with executive producer Naomi Campbell as a supermodel coach along with two new supermodel coaches, Anne V and Lydia Hearst. Host Nigel Barker will take on a new expanded role for the second season, serving as a confidante and advisor to the 12 supermodel hopefuls. The Face gives viewers unprecedented access inside the world of the fashion industry as three teams of aspiring modeltestants, each led by a supermodel coach, are guided through real life assignments, including photo shoots and commercials. Throughout the series, the supermodel coaches mentor young hopefuls using the lessons and skills they have learned to guide their teams through challenges that accurately depict what it takes to have a career as a model and be the face of a brand. The models will be exposed to the biggest and most influential names in the industry, or FaceMakers, who appear throughout the show to help judge and lend their expertise. In the end, only one girl will be chosen to become 'The Face' of Frédéric Fekkai’s 2014 national ad campaign. Produced by Shine America, The Face is fast becoming a global phenomenon. Since its debut on Oxygen in early 2013, local versions of the show with Campbell have been announced in both the UK for Sky Living and Australia for Foxtel.
