Heidi Klum

Project Runway is shaking things up for Season 12 by bringing back a mystery contestant from a past season and adding interactive components for fans.

Viewers will have the ability to weigh in on challenges through an interactive on-screen feature and possibly win fashion makeovers. In addition to giving the fans more control, beloved mentor Tim Gunn will also be given the power to save one designer from elimination.
