Emma Holmes has been crowned the winner of Sky Living’s addictive model talent show, The Face. If you haven’t seen it, where have you been? It’s the reality TV of our fashion dreams, where three supermodels – Erin O’Connor, Caroline Winberg and Naomi Campbell coached teams of aspiring models and competed against each other to find ‘the face’ of Max Factor.
Emma, the half Dutch, half Jamaican beauty, saw off 24 aspiring models over eight weeks and beat fellow finalists, Elaine Nturo from Team Erin and Eleanor Corcoran of Team Caroline to take the title of ‘The Face’, as well as a nationwide Christmas campaign for Max Factor. Impressive.
Maybe unsurprisingly, the unique beauty was part of the unstoppable force of nature that was Team Naomi, who had a somewhat tough love approach when it came to her coaching technique. It certainly paid off and appears to have brought the pair closer, as Emma tweeted last night: “Just cried again watching that scene with @NaomiCampbell the best mentor I could ever ask for, I owe everything to you.” And Naomi tweeted back: “It was an honour to walk on the catwalk with you Emma. I felt like a proud mother
#emotional #TeamNaomi @TheFace UK.” Emosh, indeed. We can’t wait to see the campaign.
