Naomi Campbell has many jobs: She’s a television personality, an activist,an entrepreneur and, of course, a model. She has many talents, but twerking — you know, dropping it like it’s hot — isn’t one of them. This was just one of several revelations during a recent Town Hall Q&A with Campbell held at SiriusXM in New York City with designer Diane von Furtstenberg firing questions as moderator. EW was on the scene — and walked away with a few “no way, really?” discoveries about the British supermodel: READ FULL STORY

SPOILER AHEAD! Keep reading only if you want to know who was crowned the winner — and which supermodel coach gets to take credit — of the first season of The Face.
To recap: The Oxygen reality competition series featured 12 aspiring models vying to win the title and a contract with ULTA Beauty. The field was divided into three teams, led by a supermodel coaches Naomi Campbell, Coco Rocha and Karolina Kurkova. Over the course of eight episodes, we saw the ladies compete in a series of fashion-related challenges that involved posing, catwalking and shilling. We didn’t see Naomi Campbell throw any legendary temper tantrums.

The Face mentor Coco Rocha went back to her day job to front the campaign for Banana Republic’s limited edition Mad Men collection which hit Banana Republic stores yesterday.
When the model was asked to be a part of the campaign, she jumped at the chance. “I’m obsessed with shows like Mad Men because of the fashion,” Rocha, told EW. “I probably watch it because of the clothes, to see what everyone’s wearing, so I was excited to see what they’d do.”
Once again, the brand called on the show’s Emmy-winning costume designer, Janie Bryant, to help produce the collection — the third inspired by the AMC drama, which returns for a sixth season April 7th — and although there have been some complaints that Rocha is much thinner than Mad Men‘s curvaceous female characters, the clothes are definitely representative of the 1960′s mod style.

Let’s face it: part of the reason why I tuned into the premiere of Oxygen’s model reality show — which follows 12 aspiring models as they compete to become the face of ULTA Beauty — was to see what Naomi Campbell would do.
We all know the supermodel’s reputation for hurling more than insults, and this is the same network that produces The Bad Girls Club.
But while there were tears, raised voices, and plenty of eye rolling, the premiere episode of The Face was pretty tame. So far, Tyra Banks still out-crazies Naomi, at least on the small screen. Let’s review the most “dramatic moments” (cue music) from the series premiere of The Face… READ FULL STORY
Oh, say can you see that the Azzedine Alaïa dress Naomi Campbell wore to last night’s premiere of The Face is almost identical to the Azzedine Alaïa dress Alicia Keys wore to sing the Star Spangled Banner at the Super Bowl?
This isn’t just on, it’s Azzedine Alaïa on!
Last Sunday, Keys took the field at the Superdome wearing the body-con dress in a standout crimson shade. The singer added a little drama to the look with a Marina B choker, diamond studs and smokey eye makeup.
Campbell, who braved icy temperatures to show off her snow white Alaïa on the red carpet at the Face premiere in New York City, styled the garment with a diamond choker and cuff, an emerald statement ring and Christian Louboutin platform heels.
There’s a difference in the width of the straps — and (obviously) they’re different colors — but both dresses have a dramatic fishtail hemline, and the ultra-feminine, curve-hugging silhouette for which the designer is known.
It comes down to color and styling in this head-to-head Fashion Face-Off. Who wore Alaïa better? Cast your vote in the poll below! READ FULL STORY
Noted photographer Nigel Barker has vacated his seat as a judge on Tyra Bank’s America’s Next Top Model, but he’ll take a walk down memory lane when he hosts a marathon of the show’s All Star season on Oxygen tomorrow. And soon, he’ll be back as a star of the new modeling competition The Face, alongside Bank’s former runway rival Naomi Campbell and models Coco Rocha and Karolina Kurkova.
