She was only asking a question and nothing there says anything about it being a casual thing at the time for young ladys'...???
Selina, Could you please tell me where you have seen this picture of Anastasia smoking in a chair? i don't think I have seen it before.

Smoking in the time period of the Romanovs was very common.  It was considered healthy, actually.  Alexandra smoked as well.

Does anyone know if the ciggarettes back then were as harmfull as they are now? I think the companies put in some bad stuff to make them addictive...

They were certainly harmful, and probably without filters too. Even back then, a lot of Orthodox Priests looked upon smoking as a sin - I think partly because of its addictive qualities.

I agree with Lanie. I think that the smoking Ladies at that time considered as fashionable and elegant.
They thought  that the smoking are very contemporary and decadent thing.

  I was just wondering if the grand duchess were allowed to/had access to makeup? I can't really tell in their pictures. It doesn't seem that they would wear any back then...

I think there was a thread on this somewhere, however, I can not rememeber where.
I don't believe they wore makeup at all in their personal lives, maybe for offical photoshoots and other offical things. I am just guessing, so somewhere correct me where I have misguided

I thought it that it wasn't write for proper young ladies to wear make up, it was only prostitutes that wore it at that age.
I'm sure older ladies wore make up, like face powder etc, but i doubt OTMA were allowed to wear it.

What about when OTMA entered their teens? One problem would be acne. I'm sure they probably would have been allowed a tiny bit of makeup just to cover the spot where acne was.

Who knows, but most likely not since people then tended to think of women who wore make up as, well, women of ill-repute--actresses, etc etc.  I doubt Alexandra would have let her daughters wear make up, unless it was for the official photographs they took.
