Constance x YSL x Purple

With all the hallmarks one expects of a Purple magazine photo shoot, though with only implied nudity, model Constance Jablonski takes to the pages of their spring 2011 issue. Visually appealing for being sensually shot and soft on the eye it is, however, the shoot’s nature that is the real point of interest. Dedicated to the Yves Saint Laurent fashion house, and solely featuring clothes from their-in, it raises the question as to whether we’re looking at a pictorial or an advertorial-cum-pictorial.

Neither phase us, but if it were an advertorial should it be marked as such? Or do we, as consumers of such media, just accept the fashion industry’s constant blurring of advertising and editorial?
