A Beauty Perspective: Smoking & Editorials

There sure is a lot of cigarette smoking in fashion magazines.

If you visit any fashion photography site or blog, you will see at least one beautiful photo, with a beautiful model, with a cigarette hanging out of their mouth ....backstage in-between shows, in editorials, on set.  

I find this to be the most boggling aspect of it all: the "cool" factor

When did smoking cigarettes begin to have a positive connotation and look appealing? 

Has the industry and Hollywood idolized models smoking as sexy and the cool thing to do?
