NEW YORK - December 13, 2012 - The battle to find the next supermodel is on as Oxygen Media premieres its highly anticipated new competition show "The Face," on Tuesday, February 12 at 9 PM ET/PT. Produced by Shine America, the seven-episode series is hosted by world renowned photographer and personality Nigel Barker, and features worldwide icon Naomi Campbell, bombshell sensation Karolina Kurkova and fashion 'It' girl Coco Rocha as supermodel coaches who go beyond the glamour to compete head to head to find the newest face of ULTA Beauty. The aspiring models have the opportunity to make a life-changing transformation through unprecedented access to real clients and national brands including W magazine, and iconic mentorships from industry veterans such as legendary photographer Patrick Demarchelier along with celebrities like New York Knicks basketball star Amare Stoudemire and talk show host Wendy Williams. The battle begins even before the show premieres as 24 hopefuls from around the world fight for the 12 coveted spots in the competition and a chance to be mentored by the biggest and most influential names in the industry on "THE FACE: The Fight to Make The Final 12." This one-hour can't miss kick-off special, airing Tuesday, February 5 at 9 PM ET/PT, will give viewers an exclusive peek at what it takes to win the prized opportunity that every model hopes for - a contract to be the face of a national brand.

The stakes are high as the aspiring models stand to gain unparalleled experience and valuable skills in pursuit to become "The Face." Proving they can survive in the competitive and cutthroat world of fashion, the hopefuls compete in an array of real-life challenges depicting the highly sought-after career of a successful supermodel. From photo shoots and runway shows to commercials for national brands, the top 12 young women selected for Team Naomi, Team Karolina and Team Coco battle it out each week in two different challenges, a Test Shoot and Campaign, assessing their fundamental skills and versatility as a model. Brand representatives from each challenge along with special guest judges will choose the winning team, leaving each supermodel coach from the bottom two teams to nominate a member of their team for elimination and the winning coach to decide who will be sent home. In the end, only one will win the ultimate grand prize of becoming a spokesperson and brand ambassador for the ULTA Beauty Fall and Holiday 2013 national ad campaigns.

After thousands auditioned for a coveted spot, only 24 hopefuls descend upon New York inspired to compete after watching Naomi, Karolina and Coco strut the catwalk in Zac Posen's Spring Runway Show at New York Fashion Week.

Staking their claim on favorites, each picks up a team of four lucky young women to take under their wing and move on in the competition.
