Models who smoke (updated)

August 29, 2007

Smoking is bad. I don’t think I need to explain any more about that. It really gets on my nerves to see so many models smoking at the backstage of the fashion shows. Some says that it helps to kill their hunger and boredom or just simply relieve stress… but do they know how bad it is for the skin? Come on, it’s their faces that earn them a living. What’s worse, fashion editorials constantly feature models smoking… Aren’t they a bunch of bad influence? 

Here are the models who smoke…

Agyness Deyn

Catherine McNeil

Daria Werbowy. Even if smoking hurts her skin, the people at Lancome can always photoshop it to perfection.

Denisa Dvorakova

Egle Tvirbutaite

Georgina Stojilkovic

Irina Kulikova

Lera Sheremata. She is definitely too young to smoke.

Lily Donaldson. She looks so skinny and tired nowadays, must be the tobacco.

Magdalena Frackowiak

Masha Novoselova and Olga Sherer

Michaela Kocianova

Romina Lanaro and Milagros Schmoll

Skye Stracke

Tatyana Usova

Carmen Kass is reportedly a very heavy smoker.

Irina Lazareanu. This one is no surprise, considering the fact that she’s good friends with Pete Doherty and she is the ex-drummer of a rock band. Rockers are rebellious yeah?

Diana Dondoe.

Snejana Onopka. Gosh, she’s already too skinny.

Gemma Ward looks so innocent I absolutely can’t believe that she smokes! (It’s caught on video) I heard that she got on smoking only after joining the modelling industry.

Freja Beha Erichsen, the face of Chanel for two straight seasons. That’s funny, smoking infront of a ‘Absolutely NO smoking’ sign’!

Jessica Stam. I saw another photo of her smoking while strolling with Paris Hilton. Yeah, she often gets inked with the Hollywood circuit.

    Smoking seems to have become omnipresent in both reality and editorials. I could practically smell the intoxicating smoke wafting of the pages of so many fashion magazine editorials. Seeing all those young models backstage destroying their bodies with all that smoke backstage is just sad. If health officials were so worried about the negative influence of thin models on young girls, why has nothing been said about the negative influence of the models smoking habits??.

    I dunno. I mean, smoking is bad for you, true. But you can’t let the fact they smoke diminish your favoritism over them. I’m a HUGE Gemma fan. She is amazing, I love her, learned so much about her. But come on now we gotta be a little realistic. The job is stressful and they’re *constantly* moving. All models smoke, you just gotta live with it. Besides, would you rather them be anorexic and putting that on young women or the smoking? True, the smoking suppresses their appetite but it probably also keeps them awake and moving. Not that I’m supporting it but you can’t be over zealous about this kind of stuff. It’s just the way it is. They’re still the amazing people you thought they were.

    First, when a french woman, a lifelong smoker and drinker, dies at 107 years old and does NOT die from a smoking related illness, one has to question whether the causality of lung cancer is fully established. Further, when one looks at American lifestyle choices, such as spraying cans of RAID indoors, one notes that there are many causative factors (intentionally) overlooked in most major anti-smoking studies.

    Third, when the government wants to ban a common and casual habit, take notice. They simply want you to let them tell you what to do. Judging by the several threads I’ve read re: Gemma smoking, the comments are staggeringly ignorant of the facts. It’s all “ewwww, smoking is like, so gross!”

    And somehow I doubt the comments were all posted by schoolgirls.

    Having been on the production staff of many fashion shows, I can assure you that you should be concerned about all the COCAINE they’re doing. That shit’ll FUCK YOU UP. Cigarettes? I’d be more worried about can after can of hair spray in their faces.

    Gemma, don’t listen to the silly ones – they don’t know you like I do. 😀

    But don’t forget your cardio!

    amber valletta smokes?? isn’t she supposed to be into yoga and a healthy life?? i guess we shouldn’t be surprised that they all smoke. they are so young, and at that age no one thinks about their skin or health. i’m not condoning it — i hate smoking — but that would be the reality (and i agree with ellis, i’m sure the other drugs are worse). they have hair, makeup, photographers and photoshop to erase any of the lines smoking causes. i mean, i’d like to see what kate moss looks like before she’s airbrushed!

    ps where is eugenia volodnia now??

    Sad but true!! These girls are soooo young too. Let’s hope smoking cigarettes are their only vice.

    Don’t say Coco Rocha! Oh god I hope Coco doesn’t smoke. I love her soo much but I can really understand how the job is stressful going to many cities and staying up late and waking up early in the mourning. I used to smoke and I was only 15 yrs old. I stole some cigs and I thought one was enough then another one would be that bad. Then as you know it got atticting and I actually stopped cause I had no choice I hated to stop but in the long run I feel much better now that I don’t smoke. So I can also understand how people can get addicited and how hard it is to quit the habit.

    if you want them to eat once in a while then they have to smoke to keep the weight off

    they’re not paid to THINK about shit like the causes of smoking
    they’re paid to LOOK a certain way, and being thin is a requirement

    I was modeling for 6 years and it’s hard not to smoke when everyone around you smokes. Especially when 80% of work time are just WAITING. Waiting for hair and make-up to be done, waiting for rehearsal, waiting for set up lighting, waiting for other 100 models get their make-up and hair done….so I smoke, drink lots coffee and play with my phone all the time.
    well I’d managed to quit soon after stop modeling…

    Wow, I never realised so much models smoke.
    However, I don’t think we’re in a position to judge them.
    Of course smoking is bad, we’re not retarded, but give these girls a break! Their job actually is quite stressful & all, what with the whole skinny era & traveling & everything.
    Plus, just because one smokes doesn’t mean they’re a bad person.
    Let them be. It’s their lives.

    Its no shocking surprise these girls smoke actually, i mean its a common vice not just among models but also among the young urban professionals; in my office there are those innocent looking faces like Gemma Ward who smokes but if you see their faces it looks like they don’t smoke at all. I’ve seen Carmen Kass smoke the first time during the Cannes Victoria’s Secret show backstage on FTV. And Eleonora Bose on FTV again. Well there was a picture of Adriana Lima smoking while backstage in Victoria’s Secret show. I know its unhealthy but we dont know anything about them except seeing them on TV! I have to say there are those really models who is proactive about healthy living like Inguna Butane (read it in Vogue); Caroline Trentini, Liya Kebede, Christy Turlington of course! but gosh Snejana really looks Anorexic!

    And once it was supposed to be so sexy to smoke. It was a symbol for the femme fatale and the free spirit independent woman. This has changed very fast over the years. I’d miss the heavy smoking Moss though. Ah well, don’t worry about their skins, tons of make-up done by the best visagists, photoshop, airbrush and voila…….so the models does go on smoking and not only these young women. Funny that smoking is now supposed as being rebellious! Where has freedom gone? Isn’t freedom to be boss over your own body out of fashion?

  23. March 19, 2008 5:17 pm

    I think smoking is awful! Practically ALL the models!! But I know two models that don’t: carol trentini and gisele! Yeah, gisele used to smoke, but she stopped 4 years ago.

  24. March 26, 2008 5:56 pm

    Smoking is very seductive. Have you never heard of Film noir ? Watch the movie “Gilda” starring Rita Hayworth? How about Catherine Zeta Jones in “Chicago” I would have to say if smoking freaks you out, then what does Pot, Beer and Pills do to you? Get over it people. Oh Yeah, I do Not smoke nor do I judge the ones that do.

  25. April 11, 2008 3:44 am

    Um…excuse me…modelling is stressful?? Compared to say, being a cardiac surgeon, an air traffic controller or a parent??

    These girls are beautiful and seeing them smoke doesn’t make me judge them any differently. Makes me think, God…how boring.
    They’re catwalking cliches.

    These girls are models because they’re skinny…not skinny because they model.

    Smoking is a crutch. A dependancy. It’s not freedom. It’s freakin’ ugly.

    There’s a lot of waiting around in modelling, but there’s this new invention called a book…it helps pass the time… eating is good too. Oh sorry, forgot. Fashion is all about looking good in clothes, not looking good naked.
    …But as someone else has stated, smoking is not the problem…snorting is. Cocaine. How to gain a personality and lose your mind.

    Sure smoking is not a sin, what was once considered rebellious and therefore glamourous is now slow suicide and everyone is the boss of their own body (hmm…then why cave in to the pressure to be skinny?) but I have a problem with this because sheep tend to confuse models with role models.

    Lily Cole smokes American Spirit. Coco Rocha caused a scene in Gaultier backstage smoking and saying a quote that made anti-smoking groups in raged. The video has been pulled from TMZ. There are only a handful top models who dont smoke like Tyra, Karolina K., Doutzen, Julia Stegner, Heidi Klum, Caroline Trentini and Ali Michael.

    Blasted! It’s disgusting! Just because you have the money to fix the damage it does to your face doesn’t change the current foul oder… Additionally, I think although it’s called a “Stress relief” it’s just a pathetic ploy and holding onto teenage and foolish rebellion.
    That’s just my piece….
    Side Note: the green dress Freja Beha Erichsen is fantastic.

    To be honest, I liked these pictures.I love the pics!
    It looks sooo sexy, when elegant, slim and attractive young models have a cigarette between their gorgeous lips. (compared to uggly middle-aged fat hags eating hamburgers…)

    Models love modelling, they enjoy their beauty, they enjoy their cigarettes , they enjoy the admiring glances men give them, and these girls know that they will find a rich and handsome husband (on the contrary to girls who are fighting desperately againt overweight…)
    That’s the way it goes…it all about jealousy.

    well these photos are so awesome. they are so hot with cigarettes in their hand!

    but i agree that smoking is so bad. but u know what, smoking can help u out of stress. because these young beautiful girls always know that the “super model” status is not ever lasting.

    Absolutely disgusting. There goes my respect for these girls. Anybody who smokes is supporting an industry of addiction and bad health. And it’s just plain stupid too! Being bored is not an excuse and neither is stress. There are other ways to deal with stress than smoking shit! Use what little of your brain you have while it’s still there. Thank God my favorites aren’t on the list though! Don’t turn to the dark side girls!

    Why do you all consider smoking as disgusting habit? And all of you are obssessed with fashion and you’re outraged when you see that your favourite model is smoking! Like you didn’t know it before, that everyone in fashion business smoke, they have to keep their body skinny, duh. I mean it’s a vice, but you know people take drugs and more dangerous stuff… so in the end cigarettes don’t even look so bad. You think that 17-year-old Lera Sheremata is too young to smoke. I started to smoke when I was 16… Some of my friends from school started smoking when they were 13,14. Now, that’s too young. So, relax people. Would you like a cigarette? 🙂

    what is truly disgusting is seeing all the comments lambasting the models for smoking. of course everyone knows that it isn’t the healthiest thing you can do, but it is NO ONE else’s business.
    the irrefutable FACT is that there really is nothing sexier than a beautiful woman smoking a cigarette

    i love it that just smoking can make one a rebel these days. no drugs, no alcohol just legal nicotine can turn one into a rebel. now that is really wonderful. and yes, it is nobody’s business if someone likes to smoke.
    most models smoke to get rid of their appetite for healthy food and to stay thin so they get a change for a job. that’s how it is. so yes, stop lambasting this girls! god, i almost want to light one up.

    I read lots of parroting of the campaigns of 1970s anti-smoking zealots, virtually all of which is false. Zealots believe so strongly in their cause that they believe lying is OK, whether they are political, religious, environmental, or health-oriented. Don’t just believe what the PTB wants you to believe. Do your research. Smoking does not cause lungs to go black (a medical examiner cannot tell the difference between smoker and non-smoker lungs), does not “age your skin,” does not “ruin your looks.” Look at facts such as >50% of all lung transplants are done with smokers’ lungs, because they work better. Journal of the National Cancer Institute, Nov. 2013 published yet another study stating that second-hand smoke poses no health risk at all, no matter how long or intense the exposure. These are the facts. Shake the programming.
