Plot Synopsis

Twelve young female models compete in weekly elimination challenges, as they vie to become the spokesperson and brand ambassador for a national ad campaign: ULTA Beauty Fall and Holiday 2013 campaigns (Season 1); and Frederic Fekkai's 2014 campaign (Season 2). The 12 hopefuls are separated into three teams, with each group coached by one supermodel, including these coaches in Season 1: worldwide icon Naomi Campbell; bombshell sensation Karolina Kurkova; and fashion "It" girl Coco Rocha. Each week, the models compete in two different challenges, a Test Shoot and Campaign, assessing their fundamental skills and versatility as a model. Brand representatives from each challenge along with special guest judges choose the winning team, leaving each supermodel coach from the bottom two teams to nominate a member of their team for elimination. The coach of the winning team decides who gets sent home. Along the way, each hopeful has the opportunity to make a life-changing transformation through unprecedented access to real clients and national brands, including "W" and "ELLE" magazines, and iconic mentorships from industry veterans such as legendary photographer Patrick Demarchelier and revered male supermodel Tyson Beckford.
