When Kendall Jenner, 18, walked in Marc Jacobs’s show (center) during New York Fashion Week, many assumed it was a one-time stunt by the designer, who loves using celebrities in his ad campaigns. But now that she’s graced the catwalk in London and Paris (for Givenchy, left, and Chanel, right), Jenner seems poised for a high-fashion career to take off. We chatted with Nigel Barker, host of modeling competition The Face, to see if he thinks Jenner has what it takes to become a top model.

“I definitely think she has the potential,” he tells PEOPLE. “These things rely on a little bit of longevity and she’s still young, [but] she’s doing all the right things, walking in the right shows. She’s got the look — that smoldering, strong look. Every once in a while, she reminds me a bit of Gia Carangi, that sort of mystery to her.”

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.

Coco Rocha's Final 'The Face' Blog: Everyone's A Winner (But, Okay, One Person Actually Did Win)

The Face Finale Coco RochaBen Cope

Meet supermodel (and star of “The Face”) Coco Rocha (left, with finalist Margaux) who has shared her experience filming the high-stakes modeling competition on Oxygen. Rocha, Karolina Kurkova and Naomi Campbell each selected four girls to compete on their team, with losing teams submitting models for elimination each week.

Rocha live-tweeted Tuesday night’s finale from our @StyleWatchMag account, and we incorporated some of our favorite Tweets throughout her final blog, in which she reflects on how far she and Margaux have come as a team — and who really wins in the end.

Well, here we are: The final episode of The Face. It seems like just yesterday we had 24 girls and now all of a sudden we’re down to four: Team Karolina’s Devyn, a mother from the Bronx who all three mentors fought for on day one; hardworking and sweet Ebony, also from Team Karolina; Team Naomi’s former Miss Universe China, Zi Lin, who has been one to watch all season; and finally the beautiful Margaux from my Team Coco, a quirky model after my own heart who won me over on the first day with her risky head shot. Together, for better or for worse, we never played it safe as a team and we always strived to think outside the box.

Coco Rocha's 'The Face' Blog: Hey Naomi, My Team Is Winning With the Fans

Meet supermodel (and star of “The Face”) Coco Rocha (center, posing with her team of models) who’s sharing her experience filming the high-stakes modeling competition on Oxygen. Rocha, Karolina Kurkova and Naomi Campbell each selected four girls to compete on their team, with losing teams submitting models for elimination each week. In her sixth blog, Rocha dishes on model faux pas and backstage drama.

This week’s episode of The Face is all about being a brand ambassador. The most envied campaigns in fashion and beauty nearly all require that the model be able to speak, sometimes extensively, about a product. Learning how to communicate as a brand ambassador is a must.

Lights, Camera … : The challenge is a red carpet press event thrown by a magazine. The clients are journalist William Norwich and iconic model Pat Cleveland, both experts on red carpet etiquette, who will look at how the girls walk and hold themselves in front of press, photographers and fans, as well as they answer questions. Billy and Pat teach the girls how to pose for the cameras in their Guido Maria Kretschmer gowns, and remind them that “to admit when you don’t know something” is the height of intelligence. In other words, no making stuff up.

“My favorite thing about N.Y.C. is the energy in general,” says Team Naomi’s Jocelyn (above, grabbing a taxi in style and having some fun with a cutout of mentor Naomi Campbell — we bet she’d never try that in person!)

“I love going for walks around the city, getting a coffee along the way,” she adds. “And I’m obsessed with pizza. This is definitely a place that’s known for good pizza!” Got to love a model who’s not afraid to eat!
