In our weekly roundup of the looks that are gaining fashion ground (and the ones losing their style street cred), we saw ladies take notes from the gentlemen, soft hues and a bag we took to our senior prom.
Just because we’re nearing the end of New York Fashion Week doesn’t mean the glam is even close to over. The proof? These Tweets, Instagrams, Vines and Insta videos. We’re particularly sweet on Nicki Minaj’s bubble-gum-pink lips at the Jeremy Scott show, and, speaking of chomp chomp chomping, we’re also eating up the Subway-wrapper dress that stole the Project Runway show. Scroll down for even more celeb spottings and day-in-the-life updates, and stay tuned for tomorrow’s recap!

We know you loved watching the first season of The Face, the reality show where supermodel coaches compete with each other to find the new face of ULTA Beauty. Well, here’s some exciting news: Oxygen Media tells PEOPLE exclusively that they’ve finalized the details for season two of the show. The contestants this season will be competing to be the face of … wait for it … the legendary hair care company Frédéric Fekkai.
As part of this partnership, Fekkai himself will be making regular guest appearances on the show. In addition, the winner (i.e. the new “face”) will receive personal mentoring from the hair man himself — and will make appearances at Fekkai salons and at stores that carry Fekkai, and will be featured on Fekkai’s website and social media outlets. The supermodel coaches will be Naomi Campbell, who also is the show’s Executive Producer, and Lydia Hearst and Anne Vyalitsyna (Hearst and Vyalitsyna are replacing Karolina Kurkova and Coco Rocha this season).
“I’m delighted that Fekkai is joining the upcoming season of The Face. For me, the worlds of beauty and fashion have always been closely intertwined — many of my personal clients over the years have been top models, so this is a natural fit,” Fekkai says.

They’ve heard the Top Model comparisons. They know they’re facing stiff competition from the 1.2 million other reality shows on TV. But the ladies of The Face — Naomi Campbell, Karolina Kurková and Coco Rocha — are ready for the ratings battle. Hey — they have survived in the fashion world, after all.
“When you want the best, you’ll do anything to have the best,” Campbell tells PEOPLE of the guest designers and photographers appearing on the show. “I’m very proud of … the level of our show.”
Are you on the fence about watching the series? Here are five reasons why we think you should check out the premiere:
1. It follows the addictive format of The Voice. Instead of judging aspiring models and sending them home (though there will still be eliminations), Campbell, Kurková and Rocha are mentoring the women. “I always felt, being in this industry for so long, that it was my responsibility to share,” Kurková tells PEOPLE. “Being a successful model isn’t just about being pretty and tall — you have to be a businesswoman, know your craft, have a sense of style … we’re teaching the ropes of the industry.”
And just like on The Voice, The Face contestants will often get to choose their mentor, which makes for dramatic twists. “If there are two mentors who want to have the same girl, it’s up to that girl,” Rocha explains to PEOPLE. “And that’s where the fun begins.”
