For Armani it's not a rare case for him to have a model in the ad campaign who has never walked the show. For example Stam did 2 campaigns for him before finally walking his show in S/S 09 (unless you count the HC shows). Iirc reading about it (might be just a rumour), he prefers lesser known models for his [RTW] shows so the focus can be on the clothes.

She was an exclusive even, back in S/S 08.
Catherine McNeil did the D&G Pre-Fall 2007 and Dolce & Gabbana Resort 2009 campaigns without ever walking the shows
