You are correct ... those sort of things are all more or less commercial modleing. Anything that presents any product to the public is usually "commercial". Runway presents the product to the buyers and editors ... the people who work in fashion. And Editorial work in magazines is not considered commercial ... unless it's for a lifestyle magazine.
There is a slight crossover between the two ... so the line is sometimes blurred.
But you don't realy see many famous runway/ecitorial girls in Macy's catalogs or in TV commercials for tampons or insurance. Yes, it can happen ... but only a few lucky models can do both and look right in either place. It's a different "look" for each type of model. Runway/Edtorial models are quirkier looking and not as conventionally pretty ... sometimes they would be considered almost ugly or at least have a very distinctive and uniquie look. Commercial models must be pretty and have killer smiles.
