There are some sexy new faces coming to Oxygen.

The cable network has snapped up a trio of supermodels to star in its new model competition, appropriately titled, “The Face.”

Victoria’s Secret model Karolina Kurkova and Canadian supermodel Coco Rocha will join previously announced “supermodel icon” Naomi Campbell as coaches for the reality show.

This latest catwalk competition features a group of aspiring female models perfecting their pouting and posing for a shot to become “the face” of a well-known brand, yet to be announced.

The supermodel coaches are responsible for molding, nurturing and transforming the contestants as they compete for this opportunity of a lifetime.

Oxygen also announced Wednesday that photographer and former model Nigel Barker has been tapped to host the show. Barker was recently axed from Tyra Banks’ “America’s Next Top Model,” after appearing as a judge on the model search from 2004-2012.

Casting for the aspiring models is currently underway.

“The Face” is scheduled to premiere in 2013.
