Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn rule the runway, and Lifetime’s new poster for the upcoming twelfth season of “Project Runway” makes sure that everyone knows it.

A racy new promotional image for the show has been banned from Hollywood billboards for being too risque. It features the “Project Runway” host and mentor upon a throne, royally decked out in Victorian-era costumes as a group of completely naked models, both male and female, kneel down before them in worship.
