Smoking…


Is it cool to smoke again?

With the government fighting to discourage the younger population, and reduce the number of people smoking altogether, the fashion world is doing exactly the opposite.

Throwing celebrities such as Lady Gaga and previous runway model Kate Moss on the catwalk with fag in tow, to pay homage to such a controversial topic has had columnists in tangles over whether it is completely outrageous (see Jan Moir ), or fashionable.

Personally that eye-watering, breath hindering smell of cigarettes is not one I’m going to be substituting my Marc Jacobs Daisy perfume for any time soon.

The fact that when Kate Moss did it, the press went mad, she’s a ‘bad role model’, she should know its ‘bad for your skin’, its like they had just caught her doing a line of coke all over again, yet when Lady Gaga does it, everyone looks away- if it’s not made of meat they’re not interested in her poor attention seeking attempts.

Even designer Kurt Geiger has started ‘Le Smoking’ trend, with the ‘cigarette heel’ in smokey hues. Now I’m all for this kind of smokin’ hot style, especially when it comes to shoes (that I more than likely can’t walk in) I’m all over it like a rash. Particularly sky scraper (Carvela)  heels which ooze pizzazz:

    Smoking? Fashionable? Never!!! Only idiots will ever think it’s cool or fashionable. Starting smoking for anyone with half a brain cell is NUTS. At least when people got hooked in the 1940s they were’nt fully aware of the effects…

    Lady Gaga is far from making it look cool either. :-)
