Heidi Klum's latest ad for Project Runway features nude models and is so racy it is banned in Los Angeles.

According to TooFab, the ads for Season 12 of Project Runway were scheduled to appear in print for magazines, posters, billboards and bus shelter ads, but the city of Los Angeles has declined to run them because it was deemed too racy. Los Angeles will instead run a less racy version of ads with the models wearing underwear.

New York City, however, will make the bold move of running the ads.

Klum, 40, appears in the ad dressed in Victorian Queen garb, while sitting in a throne. Standing alongside Klum is the show's mentor, Time Gunn. The pair presides over a group of nude models who are strewn about at the feet of Queen Klum.

According to poll results on Toofab.com," 61 percent of fans believed the naked ad was "fine," while 39% thought it was "inappropriate".

Klum, herself, posed nude for an ad to promote Season 9 of Project Runway in 2011.

Project Runway Season 12 will premiere on July 18 at 9 p.m. EST/8 Central on Lifetime.

Klum will judge the new cast of fashion designers alongside Marie Claire Fashion Director Nina Garcia, fashion designer Zac Posen and Gunn.

The celebrity guests who will appear in Season 12 are Kate Bosworth, Kelly Osbourne, Allison Williams, Sigourney Weaver, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Kaley Cuoco, Stacy Keibler and original judge Michael Kors. 

According to Lifetime's website, for the first time ever, fans of the show will be able to interact live with each other through a new on-screen feature called PlayRunway. Fans can use the new feature on their computer, smartphones or tablets.
