Sadly, Heidi Klum nude does not appear on a new billboard for Project Runway Season 12, which kicks off July 18 on Lifetime.

But a series of aspiring models are donning their birthday suits in the ad, bowing down in front of Klum and Tim Gunn, as the hosts remain fully clothed in 18th century attire.

The promotional item has created quite the stir, with the Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety actually banning it from that city and dubbing it too “obscene.”


Not that Klum is phased by the controversy.

“@ProjectRunway Designers! We need clothing for these people!” she joked on Twitter along with the image. “Fast! Season 12 starts July 18th on @lifetimetv!”

Where do you stand on the billboard? Is it overly lewd?
