SKIN IS IN: A naked man is back in an Yves Saint Laurent campaign — albeit in the background. For the French house’s fall-winter campaign, Spanish supermodel and Kylie Minogue squeeze Andrés Velencoso figures as a “sculptural element” in racy ads featuring lots of black leather, pin-striped flannel and Christy Turlington, her hair swept back by Luigi Murenu, her lips painted vivid red by Tom Pecheux. YSL’s Stefano Pilati has been on a supermodel kick for several seasons and Turlington follows campaigns with Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss and Gisele Bündchen. YSL said the ads break in August magazines and will also appear in its “Manifesto” advertising flyer to be distributed worldwide on Sept. 12. YSL first made waves with nudity in advertising in 1971 when the founding couturier posed in his birthday suit for YSL Pour Homme fragrance. — Miles Socha
