Naomi’s Face Recruits Top Models and a Top Model Alum Today in Indie Newsroom


Indie Newsroom is brought to you by Naomi’s new faces, a Twilight affair, and Gisele’s bikini baby bump. Naomis <i>Face</i> Recruits Top Models and a <i>Top Model</i> Alum Today in Indie Newsroom

- Naomi Campbell has recruited super friends Coco Rocha and Karolina Kurkova as model coaches on her new reality show, The Face. And she’s also poached noted fashion photographer Nigel Barker, formerly of America’s Next Top Model, to host. Now if only Naomi would just bring the J’s — Mr. and Miss — on board, they can all give a collective bitch slap to common enemy, Tyra Banks. [Modelinia]

- There’s trouble in the paradise of phony celebrity relationships with Kristen Stewart publicly apologizing for cheating on Twilight co-star/beard merkin boyfriend Robert Pattinson with her Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders. [People]

- Either Gisele really is pregnant or someone has really been letting themselves goooooooo. [The Cut]

- Spain’s Olympians were right to fear that other countries would laugh at their Olympic uniforms since they’re so ugly it’s friggin’ hilarious. [Refinery29]

- A-List New York-er, former Marc Jacobs boytoy and self-proclaimed model Austin Armacost bared his backside for PETA‘s “Turn Your Back on Fur” campaign. Always keepin’ it classy, ain’t ya PETA? [Fashionista]

- Karl Lagerfeld showed up two hours late for his own party — which in Lagerfeld time is actually early — celebrating his Olympic collection with Selfridges. And if anyone was wondering, he approves of Hedi Slimane‘s controversial Saint Laurent name change. [Styleite]
