VIDEO: "America's Next Top Model" round two. Naomi Campbell is launching "The Face," a televised modeling competition highly reminiscent of fellow supermodel Tyra Banks's creation. 

According to Style Blazer, the reality show will air on the Oxygen Network, consisting of three teams of girls. The 24 aspiring models will all compete for the chance to be featured in beauty chain Ulta's fall and holiday 2013 ad and represent the brand at Fashion Week and in-store events.

Ex-ANTM judge and famed photographer Nigel Barker will host, and rumor has it designers Marc Jacobs and Zac Posen may make an appearance. Supermodels Coco Rocha and Karolina Kurkova will also make brief cameos.

Campbell voiced her expectations for the competitors, saying in a press release, “I’m looking for a model with a fearless spirit who can completely transform like a chameleon and take you on a unique journey that makes you believe that even impossible is possible.”
