As Karl Lagerfeld's longtime muse, the Elle Italia Baptiste Giabico editorial has the ridiculously good-looking model airbrushed as a manequin and doing a very accurate impression of a Ken doll.

Styled by head designer of Chanel, Lagerfeld also photographed the Elle Italia Baptiste Giabico spread for the magazine's October issue.

The editorial consists of a mostly shirtless Baptiste Giabico which I am sure his minion of female fans will be more than happy about.

Implications - Sex-charged imagery is still quite an effective marketing strategy as consumer demand for it is always high. Corporations that normally don't employ this marketing strategy may consider doing so to attract new customers.
