They’ve heard the Top Model comparisons. They know they’re facing stiff competition from the 1.2 million other reality shows on TV. But the ladies of The Face — Naomi Campbell, Karolina Kurková and Coco Rocha — are ready for the ratings battle. Hey — they have survived in the fashion world, after all.
“When you want the best, you’ll do anything to have the best,” Campbell tells PEOPLE of the guest designers and photographers appearing on the show. “I’m very proud of … the level of our show.”
Are you on the fence about watching the series? Here are five reasons why we think you should check out the premiere:
1. It follows the addictive format of The Voice. Instead of judging aspiring models and sending them home (though there will still be eliminations), Campbell, Kurková and Rocha are mentoring the women. “I always felt, being in this industry for so long, that it was my responsibility to share,” Kurková tells PEOPLE. “Being a successful model isn’t just about being pretty and tall — you have to be a businesswoman, know your craft, have a sense of style … we’re teaching the ropes of the industry.”
And just like on The Voice, The Face contestants will often get to choose their mentor, which makes for dramatic twists. “If there are two mentors who want to have the same girl, it’s up to that girl,” Rocha explains to PEOPLE. “And that’s where the fun begins.”

Rose McGowan and Kate Middleton have remarkably similar styles, a fact McGowan cherishes. “If it’s good enough for Kate Middleton, it’s good enough for me!” McGowan told us at Entertainment Weekly’s pre-SAG party in Hollywood, where she wore a hot pink Issa gown, a look that Middleton had worn previously in a slightly different cut. And this that wasn’t the first time McGowan and the Princess-to-be shared an Issa look. “I wore [the label’s] bright green gown to the MOCA and then Kate Middleton wore the blue one to announce her engagement to, you know, the Prince.” So why does she love the Kate Middleton-approved label? “Issa really embraces women’s forms,” McGowan told us. But don’t expect McGowan to admit that she and Middleton are exactly the same. “It might be Issa that brought us together,” she said. “But I don’t wear funny hats. And she probably doesn’t wear five-inch heels.”

Elizabeth Olsen was one of the most buzzed-about rising actresses at the Sundance Film Festival last week. Not only did her two films Martha Marcy May Marlene and The Silent House receive good reviews, she’s also a style star in the making, thanks largely to her older twin sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley. “I get their opinion when it comes to clothes,” the 21-year-old actress told us, wearing a sample jacket and leather leggings by her sisters’ label The Row paired with a Marni top (pictured). “Seriously, I wear [my snow boots] when I’m walking just from the subway, and I’ll go see them and they’ll say ‘What boots are you wearing? Maybe we need to get you some different boots.’ And then when you see them, they’re out in the snow in some 7-inch platforms.” Click through the gallery to see more photos of Elizabeth Olsen’s style.

Demi Moore frequently adorns herself with Jack Vartanian baubles, but this Valentine’s Day she’s taking her connection with the jeweler one step further. Moore, along with husband Ashton Kutcher, collaborated with Vartanian to create a collection of necklaces in the shape of handcuffs for the Hallmark holiday. While prices range from $710 to $2,140 in variations of white, yellow and rose gold and black and white diamonds, it’s for a good cause—50 percent of sales will be donated to the Demi and Ashton (DNA) Foundation, a non-profit organization that raises awareness about child sex slavery. “I am thrilled to collaborate with Demi and Ashton in such a noble cause,” Vartanian told InStyle. Moore, shown, recently wore one of the necklaces to the Sundance Film Festival. The collection and benefit sale launches tomorrow and lasts through February 14th on JackVartanian.com.
Justin Timberlake turns 30 today! And the birthday boy looks much different than when we first met him nearly two decades ago on the Mickey Mouse Club. Since then, the multi-tasking actor/singer/William Rast designer transformed in the public eye from an ‘NSYNC boy-band member who wore shirts that say “Nasty” on them (see left) into a someone known for his dapper style, as evidenced last night when he wore a black tuxedo by Simon Spurr to the SAG Awards. There is no over-the-hill for this guy!Celebrate Justin Timberlake’s birthday by checking out his complete style evolution.
While many celebrates walked the red carpet at the SAG Awards last night, Ashton Kutcher and Gisele Bündchenstrutted in a different way down under—on a runway in São Paulo, Brazil. The two were in town for São Paulo Fashion Week, and walked in the Colcci fashion show. Bündchen flaunted her post-baby body in a bustier black look topped with a coat. Kutcher, who got his start in the business as a model, returned to the runway in a dusty gray leather jacket, loose gray tee and a pair of dark jeans. Kutcher’s wife Demi Moore and her daughter Tallulah Willis sat in the front row.

Hairstyles at last night’s SAG Awards ranged from sexy shaken-out waves like Lea Micheleto a teased, oversize bun like Jennifer Lawrence. And we got the inside scoop on their looks, thanks to celebrity hairstylist Mark Townsend. “Lea put her dress on, and I immediately saw a very modern ’70s diva,” he told us. “I gave her a big, full blowout with a small round brush for as much volume as possible.” As for Lawrence, he created a look that was young, fun and modern. “I wanted there to be tons of texture inside the bun, but I wanted it to be smooth,” Townsend said.
