Naomi Campbell and Karolina Kurkova (The) Face Off
Based on the drama from the earlier promos of "The Face," it's clear that tempers flare between Naomi Campbell and Karolina Kurkova. These exclusive photos from episode 3 show a style rivalry heating up too! Both supes bust out heavy metal details in a sartorial standoff (don't even get us started on the verbal smackdowns). If a catfight breaks out at least they have their armor ready!
Naomi goes retro in a vintage Versace gold hardware-embellished leather bondage dress from Resurrection paired with strappy Louboutins. The dress is an obvious selection as she’s been a model of choice for the Italian label for three decades. Watch out Karolina, she might throw that notepad at you and we all know she's got a pitcher's arm.
Karolina counters Naomi's gold artillery with a silver pyramid-studded Balmain mini, layers of David Yurman chains and buckled platform Fendi booties—perf for karate high kicks in self-defense. (She shopped her closet for the black button-down.)
Mediating through her wardrobe selections, Coco Rocha avoids the hard edges—but keeps it fierce in a leopard YSL (er, Saint Laurent Paris) top tucked into Balmain trousers and serious gold and cranberry velvet-detailed platform Fendi Mary Janes. She lightens up the outfit (and the mood) with a Jennifer Fisher perforated gold cuff, a pair of David Yurman rings and an architectural statement piece from By Boe.
Nigel Barker is dapper and dishy per usual working a designer trifecta: a slate blue Hugo Boss seersucker suit, a light pinstripe John Varvatos button-down and a navy polka dot Ted Baker tie. He opts for Converse Chucks for footwear—perfect for running away from any high conflict situations.
