Project Runway

"It almost looks like she has a foaming vagina."

Yep, Project Runway is officially back, y'all! The Lifetime realty hit returns for its 12th season on Thursday, July 18, and you can expect a whole lot of memorable one-liners, like the "foaming vagina" one, from Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia and the rest of the gang!

E! News has your exclusive first look at the new season, which promises to be filled with fights, fashion and familiar celebrity faces who pop up to guest judge the 16 competing designers' creations! Plus, Tim Gunn has a major surprise for one of the contestants!

Celebrities such as Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco, who recently split from Man of Steel's Henry Cavill, E!'s very own Kelly Osbourne, Kate Bosworth and original Project Runway judge Michael Kors will all appear as guest judges during season 12, but of course, the main focus is always the dueling designers—and the new batch looks to be truly dramatic as one contestant even goes "missing," while another threatens to "smash this camera right now!"

And for the first time ever, Gunn will have the ability to "save" of one the contestants if he feels they deserve a second chance. We. Love. It. But will the beloved mentor actually use his rescue? You've got to watch our exclusive sneak peek at season 12 above to find out!

Project Runway returns on Thursday, July 18, at 9 p.m. on Lifetime.
