What do aging super models do when their careers are coming to an end? They become “mentors” on a ridiculous show called The Face. This show is so stupid. The contestants are not that great looking. And their mentors are even worse. Who’s bright idea was it to bring Karen Elson in? That ugly freak really shouldn’t be giving anyone advise on beauty. Someone should be giving her advice to help her. Like maybe throwing a paper bag over her head.

I really don’t like the looks that the fashion industry tries to push on us or tell us is the definition of beauty. I have to be honest, I don’t think any of the models featured on The Face are extremely beautiful. I also don’t think the contests on this show are particularly stunning either. But I would agree the worst is Karen Elson. I think they were correct in nicknaming her The Freak. She is just down right unattractive. Who the hell would want to look like her? You never see these unattractive women on the cover of men’s magazine or in men’s magazines. They put beautiful women with very sexy curvy figures on the covers and pages of men’s magazines because that is what women are supposed to look like. Not like these freakly, homely women that the fashion magazine use. I think women need to send a strong message to the fashion industry that we reject these looks and have no interest in seeing them in their magazines. Maybe in some ways the magazines are realizing this because it is true you are beginning to see more and more celebrities on the covers of magazines that these ugly models.

That red headed guest mentor looks like someone beat her with an ugly stick.

The Face can not be serious bringing in Karen Elson to give advice on anything. Who the hell would want advice from someone as unattractive as her. I saw a layout she did for Vogue Italia last year call “Ever Changing Lady”. I swear when I saw this I seriously thought it was a man in drag. Then I looked closer and read that it was Karen Elson. I guess I am losing interest in shows like The Face because I really don’t agree on what they dictate is beautiful and for the most part I totally reject what the fashion industry and magazines are dictating is beautiful. I really don’t even subscribe to Vogue or the other fashion magazines any more. They can keep their magazines and their ugly models. I now only tend to buy magazines that show celebrities on the covers and in their pages. At least those women are attractive.

I thought it was a man in Italian Vogue layout also. She also looks like a total drag queen in the Sonia Rykiel ad that came out this year. Those ads would never encourage me to buy those clothes.

I didn’t see the Ever Changing Lady layout Italian Vogue but I did see the Sonia Rykiel ads. I agree it really does look like a man dressed as woman in those ads. I never understood what the fascination the fashion industry has with Karen Elson. She is quite unattractive and strange looking.

I agree with a lot of the comments below. I don’t really understand the fashion industry defines as beautiful or why they should expect us to believe that is beauty. When that guy introduced “the incomparable Karen Elson” I almost threw up. I have never understood how this woman is a top fashion model. I remember her so called break out cover in Vogue, the one that got her the nickname “The Freak”. The monster would be a more accurate term. She looked like a cross between a monster and a deranged clown. She is not a beautiful woman by any stretch of the imagination so why make her look worse? The shaved her eyebrows and they put all this garish clown like make up on her. She looked like something out of a horror movie. And the fashion industry thinks this a a look or a face we should aspire to? I think not. It was hilarious when some people wanted to cancel their subscription to Vogue because of the Kim Kardashian/Kanye West cover. I canceled my subscription when they put that Freak/Deranged Clown Karen Elson on the cover. I don’t even watch the fashion shows anymore. Who wants to see clothing on women who look nothing like us and seeing these models posing in the clothing also does not want to make me buy the fashions. What does make me stop and look and want to copy the style or buy the fashion is when I see celebrities walking the red carpet with the clothes on. At least when I see the clothes on those women I get an realistic idea if the style will look good on me. The fashion industry can keep their freaky models. I think women are getting smart and rejecting them. Maybe the fashion industry should listen to what women really want.

I laugh when I read all the controversy over the Kim Kardashian/Kanye West Vogue cover. Many people felt she should have not graced the cover of Vogue. While I will agree that Kim is brainless, has no talent and her reality show is just stupid, I will say this, at least she is a very pretty girl. She has a beautiful face and a sexy womanly body. I don’t understand all the hoopla over this cover and then I tune into this and see this homely looking creature named Karen Elson and she is supposedly a model. I think people should be complaining more to Vogue and the other fashion magazines about putting her in their issues rather than complaining about an actual beautiful woman like Kim Kardashian. I don’t get the fashion industry’s idea on what is considered beautiful but I will say this MOST women have absolutely no desire to look like these horribly unattractive women that they call models. I think the fashion and make up industries need to know if they want women to buy their makeup, clothing and magazines they should start using models we would actually aspire to look like.

Karen Elson’s advice is absolutely hilarious. “We are not dancers, but we are models and we can dance. The pocket books are not pom-poms”. Does this women know how ridiculous and stupid she sounds? Also she seems to be just a tad bit self absorbed. I think she is going to get a really rude awakening when someone holds a mirror up to her and shows her what she really looks like. She has buck teeth, a protruding belly and is completely unattractive. She sounds she is chewing on marbles when she talks and what comes out of her mouth definitely proves why so called models should seen and not heard. This show is completely disappointing.

“Pocket books aren’t pom-poms . LOL!!!! Thanks for letting us know that Karen Elson. I can’t believe I have been walking around all this time thinking pocketbooks were pom-poms . No wonder I never made the cheerleading squad. I can’t believe Oprah’s net work is airing this garbage. I used to like when Oprah had her show on TV. She is an intelligent woman who for the most part had interesting guests. She also ran a whole series bringing in people and motivational speakers, authors, etc. to encourage people to change their lives and to better themselves. I guess when I heard she was starting her own network she would be doing more of that kind of thing. So sad that even Oprah has resorted to the mindless nonsense of reality tv.

Shows like this are just so ridiculous. I wish they would get rid of reality tv once and for all. I miss the days of real tv shows with real actors. I find absolutely no interest in a show about picking a model for an ad campaign or why Ulta makeup feels we need to see this scripted, manipulated melodrama and BS for their campaign. I think it it actually brings down the integrity of Ulta makeup it does not encourage me to buy the product.

I am not one for these reality shows but I will say I am a little disappointed that Oprah’s network would air a show like this. Oprah so publicly battled weight issues why would she air a show that judges women on their physical appearance? What I hate even more about this show is the so called judges and mentors they pick for it. Many of them are not even good looking at all. Case in point with the red headed woman – Karen Elson last night. She is just strange looking. I can’t even believe she is a model. If that woman can be a model then there is hope for any of us because she is just down right homely looking. I think this is the reason more and more fashion magazines are showing movie stars and celebrities on their covers rather than these so called models. Models used to be pretty but they really are not anymore. I never thought that just because someone happens to be tall that instantly meant they were beautiful. Quite the opposite. Most of these runway models have a face that could stop a clock – as in the case of Ms. Elson. I think most women are tired of the fashion industry showing us these freaky, anorexic, weird looking women and thinking we should asprire to look like them or see them as role models. My feeling is if you are going to be a judge, mentor or what ever they claim to be on this show and criticize women on their appearance then you should at least be attractive yourself. Which none of these women really are – especially the red headed one. Rather than these women giving advice maybe someone should be brought in to help them with their looks especially that homely looking Karen Elson.

I can’t understand why they would bring Karen Elson in to give advice to anyone. She is so unattractive. This is the woman who was labeled “The Freak” by the fashion industry. Should The Face now change their show’s name to “The Freak”?
