'The Face' Meets Hollywood (18 Photos!)

By Fawnia Soo Hoo

While Fashion Week front rows are a supermodel's playground, Hollywood is also a stopover. The two worlds collide on a regular basis—especially for the stars of "The Face," for example. So in a lead up to the Academy Awards on Sunday, let's take a photo tour of the top moments of NigelCocoKarolina and Naomi hitting the Hollywood scene.

Denise Richards counts, okay? Back in 2008, he and the "Starship Troopers" actress posed for the cameras in sunny L.A. [Photo Credit: Michael Buckner/Getty Images]

2. At Home in the Front Row

Of course, the NYFW front rows are where the fashion-types and Hollywood A to D listers mingle. Here, the frequent front row goer's got a good seat next to Mena Suvari and Olivia Munn—not too shabby, Nigel! Too bad none of them look that happy to be there.

1. All Smiles

Nigel and Lisa Edelstein (a.k.a. Dr. Cuddy on "House") are old NYFW BFFs.

Coco Rocha

5. Two Degrees of Separation From Jennifer Aniston

Okay, so they're not really sitting next to each other, but it's still kind of fun that Coco is in the same shot as a really bored and slightly villain-y looking Justin Theroux.  You know, that Justin Theroux—writer/actor/director/Jennifer Aniston's fiance. Although, this photo was taken in February 2010 at a Y-3 show, a little over a year until he'd meet the former Rachel Green. Maybe that's why he looks so sad. [Photo Credit: Andrew H.

4. Model Actor

Coco hits a fashiony benefit party in 2009 with model-turned-actress Brooklyn Decker (at left).

3. 90210-MG!

Aw, Coco and Shanae Grimes of "90210" have a bonding moment this past NYFW. They're printed pants BFFs! [Photo Credit: Michael Buckner/Getty Images for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week]

2. The Cold Shoulder


All the pretty girls are sitting front row at Miss Sixty in February 2009, check out Coco's baby face! It looks like she and Mischa Barton last of the "O.C." are doin' their own thing while next to Minka Kelly of "Friday Night Lights" and Kristen Bell, who will always be "Veronica Mars" to me.

1. Staking Out the Front Row

Coco's having a serious pow wow with the undead Nina Dobrev of "Vampire Diaries" and Ashley Green of "Twilight." Do you think Coco is Team Edward or Team Jacob? [Rabbani and Solimene Photography/Getty Images for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week]

Karolina Kurkova

5. Team Damon

Speaking of "Vampire Diaries," KK was the envy of loads of (not so) teenage girls when she presented with Ian Somerhalder at the 2010 World Music Awards. Stefan, who? [Photo Credit: Pascal Le Segretain/Getty Images]

4. Great Scot

Karolina is a regular on the Cannes Film Festival circuit and here she is in 2012 hangin' with Gerard Butler. [Photo Credit: Andreas Rentz/Getty Images for IWC]

3. Award Winning Style


Okay, just being in the same photo as Cate Blanchett is awesome enough. Here KK and the Academy award winner and style icon celebrate the Giorgio Armani Haute Couture show in July 2011. (That's Giorgio next to Cate.) [Photo Credit: Pascal Le Segretain/Getty Images]

2. Is it Getting Hot in Here?

Ooh, sizzle. KK (love the dress, by the way) and multi-talented Golden Globe-nominated actor/hearthrob Antonio Banderas share the MCing duties at an amfAR event at Cannes in 2012. [Photo Credit: Andreas Rentz/Getty Images]

1. KAROLINA'S the Movie Star

Wait, who's talking about mixing and mingling with the actors when you are the actor? Karolina played Cover Girl in "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" in 2009. Here she is posing with her co-stars, Dennis Quaid, Steven Sommers, Channing "Magic Mike" Tatum, Sienna Miller, Rachel Nichols, Marlon Wayans and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (or as I'll always know him, "Mr. Eko" from "Lost").

Naomi Campbell

5. Très Chic

Naomi wins hands down for hanging out with the most number of Oscar winning or nominated thespians. Of course, she's an international supermodel icon who's dabbled in acting, too, so that's not a shocker. Here she is in 2007 at Cannes with Oscar winner and two time nominee, Juliette Binoche.

4. Role Models

Not sure how much more easy on the eyes this pic could be. Naomi gives two-time Academy Award nominee and former model Djimon Hounsou a hug backstage at the NAACP Image Awards in 2007. [Photo Credit: Michael Buckner/Getty Images for NAACP]

3. Swagger Alert!


Now this whole scenario here is just too cool for school. Naomi, looking ridiculously hot, hits the 2004 MTV Music Video Awards red carpet with Bruce Willis and Sean Combs (both wearing sunglasses, of course). Now who do you think has the Oscar on his mantle? John McClane or the man who gave us "I'll Be Missing You?" Answer: Diddy grabbed the statue for Best Documentary Feature in 2012.

2. What Italian Reds Do You Suggest?


While presenting together at the 2008 Bild OSGAR Awards in Germany, Naomi looks like she's reciting Academy Award winner Anthony Hopkins' world famous line back to him. "A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti." Just kidding, Naomi!

1. Million Dollar Smiles


This has got to be the sweetest picture ever. Naomi and five-time nominee and Academy Award winner Morgan Freeman both attend a gala dinner in Monte Carlo to raise funds for a number of non-profit associations including the Nelson Mandela Foundation and the Nelson Mandela Children's Fund.
