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 FaceNaomi 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.”

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.”

During his weekly press conference on Monday, New York Jets coach Rex Ryan produced a copy of our December issue to show reporters a picture of his wife, Michelle, modeling in an ad for NFL Women’s Apparel. “I never realized how similar I am to Tom Brady,” Ryan said. “The fact that he’s married to a supermodel [Gisele Bundchen]? Hello? Yes, I’m also married to a super model.” When the coach explained that he’d come across the ad while flipping through our current issue, reporters wanted to know if he was a loyal reader of InStyle. “You just have to broaden your [horizons],” he replied. “Obviously, with the wardrobe I have, I’m one of those kind of guys.” We love that Ryan took a break from talking football to publicly admire his wife, so we’ve got a tip for the coach. Keep reading until you get to our Holiday Gift Guide on page 333, find your wife the perfect present and you’ll definitely score some extra points!
