Fashionista News: Fancy a Smoke?

This is just out of control! Designer brand cigarettes? Versace, Givenchy, YSL and a few others have all lent their logos to big tobacco. Advertised to women in Asia and Russia, these ads are meant to make smokers feel superior and women who don't feel incomplete. Here is a sample ad:

"Creating a sense of appeal to female vanity and thereby making the woman
who chose to smoke Yves Saint Laurent cigarettes more attractive than
one who smokes another brand or more attractive than a woman who did not smoke
at all."
Thank you making us non-smokers feel inferior! However, no matter how many ads you create, you still wont find me smoking.
