You may have seen the finished product of "The Face" promo shoot (videos here), but you haven't seen the behind-the-scenes pics. And it would be a shame to deprive you any longer as "The Face" -- starring Naomi Campbell, Coco Rocha, Karolina Kurkova and Nigel Barker -- has arguably one of the best-looking crews (and wardrobes!) ever assembled for television.
The show's copious eye-candy also includes 24 supermodel hopefuls vying for a shot to land a contract as "the face" of ULTA Beauty. We can't reveal their gorgeous mugs just yet, but when we do, you'll understand why Naomi was heard telling one of them: "You are not alone in this race, my dear. You are one among many, many thoroughbreds."
All three supermodels are wearing form-fitting, knee-high dresses. Naomi's is by Azzedine Alaia. For those paying attention, you'll see she has worn Alaia in every style feature we've published so far. Naomi's shoes are Prada and her cuffs and earrings are by Lorraine Schwartz.
Coco's dress is by Hakaan Yildirim, a Turkish designer who's relatively new on the scene and already a favorite of celebs like Jennifer Lopez, Kate Moss and Emma Watson. (He recently made news as his entire spring collection was lost by a courier company).
Coco's sporting Guiseppe Zanotti shoes and a Made Her Think ring and bracelet.
Karolina's dress is by Bibhu Mohapatra, the Indian-American fashion designer who also creates costumes for the Opera. She is wearing Nicholas Kirkwood high-heel booties and a Lynn Ban cuff.
Last but not least, Nigel Barker brings the dapper in both his casual and hosting gear. For the shoot, he's wearing a silver Ted Baker suit, a Dries Van Noten navy tie and Top Shop Oxford shoes.
