Today may mark the official start to New York Fashion Week, but leave it to supermodels Naomi Campbell, Karolina Kurkova and Coco Rocha to get the party started early! Before the official premiere of The Face next week, the stars of the upcoming reality series joined together at New York City’s hip nightclub Marquee, to fete the special casting preview airing last night on the Oxygen network. Although highly competitive with each other on set, Naomi, Karolina and Coco were all smiles as they joined their dashing celebrity host, Nigel Barker, on the yellow carpet.
While giving the press a lesson in posing, Coco showed off her stunning black lace Emilio Pucci dress, looking every bit an Old Hollywood star with her bold red lip and 1920’s inspired retro wave hairstyle. Trailing not too far behind was Karolina, who accessorized her fierce cobalt blue Dimitri strapless fringe dress, with a silver belt, cuff and silver embellished sandals. Together the two stunners sent jaws dropping up— literally, as the dynamic duo couldn’t help but to let loose and show off their best funny faces for the crowd.
But of course, no one knows how to make an entrance quite like the one and only, Naomi Campbell! After stopping by “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” with Justin Bieber earlier in the evening— she wore Alexander McQueen for the occasion— the super made her grand entrance, hitting the carpet just in time to join the cast for a round of pictures. The British bombshell turned to one of her favorite designers for the celebratory night, opting for a curve hugging white Azzedine Alaia cocktail dress, white platform heels and a matching diamond cuff bracelet and choker necklace.
The real party got started once the stars reached the end of the carpet, where once inside Marquee’s walls, Nigal Barker made his way to the stage- set to the very fitting Bond theme. First to follow was Coco who sashayed in to Prince’s “U Got the Look” while Karolina followed to her own track, Madonna’s “Vogue”. Last but definitely not least, Naomi joined the group along with a complete choir who belted out the 90s George Michael hit, “Freedom”. The guests watched on with amazement as the girls and the choir lit up the room.
After a much deserved applause, the event took off! Naomi took a seat next to the gorgeous Tyson Beckford, while Coco mingled with model pal Behati Prinsloo, who rocked a black crop top and leather skirt with a red lip. But it was Brit beauty, Jourdan Dunn, who climbed up into the DJ booth and danced the night away. Meanwhile, fellow party attendees Zac Pose, Crystal Renn, Karlie Kloss, Pat Clevland, Pat McGrath and designer Monica Chang were spotted chatting up the mentors and posing for photographers. While we reflect on the night’s incredible event and show’s first casting episode, we can hardly wait for the official series premiere next Tuesday. Until then, we will leave you with the tough question: are you Team Coco, Team Karolina or Team Naomi?!
