Are you over Tyra's antics on "America's Next Top Model"? Fear not -- Oxygen has a whole new batch of competitive, world-famous supermodels seeking the next hot, young model in its new reality competition series "The Face."

Victoria's Secret angel Karolina Kurkova, editorial "it" girl Coco Rocha, and the iconic (and intimidating) Naomi Campbell will be picking teams of pro model wannabes and battling it out "The Voice"-style in hopes of proving that they have the eye for fashion's next beautiful face.

In this exclusive clip, Naomi is on a mission and she's not going to let any member of her team give anything but fierce face and body. When redheaded contestant Aleksandra Dubrovskaya overexaggerates a pose, Naomi gives it to her straight: "No, it's none of that. This is not animation; this is for W magazine. It's a fashion magazine. No, Aleksandra … strength in your body."

Aleksandra doesn't get where Naomi is coming from, saying that she came from Russia at age 19 with no family and not knowing English. No doubt that experience made her strong, but whether or not that strength translates into a fashion photo shoot is left to be seen.

"I was very nervous," Naomi said. "I don't want to see them make any mistakes. If we don't win this challenge, I may lose a girl. I'm not going to let that happen."

To find out if Naomi's advice steers her team in the right direction, tune in to "The Face" series premiere on Tuesday, Feb. 12, at 9 PM on Oxygen.
