I believe the answer is:

magnitude

Here is my best explanation:

'importance' is the definition.

(I have seen 'Relative importance ' mean 'magnitude' so perhaps 'importance' could also mean 'magnitude')

'publication attached to naked figure full of sex appeal' is the subsidiary indication.

'publication' becomes 'mag' (abbreviation for magazine).

'attached to' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).

'naked figure' becomes 'nude' (I've seen this before).

'full of' is an insertion indicator.

'sex appeal' becomes 'it'.

'nude' placed around 'it' is 'nitude'.

'mag'+'nitude'='magnitude'
