Filthy Habit?

Smoke ‘em if you got ‘em, darlings…
We all know that models smoke (just witness the lovely Georgina Stojilkovic backstage at Herm├ęs, February 2009, via … but the fact that photographers allow (or encourage) them to do so during a photo shoot is rather shocking! Do you find these photos appalling or appealing, darlings?
