I have always said that if a smoker is skilled, there are no tricks needed. That's why
I like the Raquel, Jen, Jessi, Valeria, and Alazne videos the most. No need for dangle
poses. No need for smoke rings. No need for "gymnastics". The TRUE pros on SS
are the women I've named because just by smoking like they do every day, they are
Alazne's video two years ago was sensational. This video, even more natural than
the first where Alazne fussed a little with lipstick, surpasses the quite terrific first one.
I totally agree with Annonimoose above that the red "Boston 77" shirt transforms her
look. Fire-engine red is Alazne's best color for garments ... by far. She looked a bit
pale and tired in that light gray garment at the beginning but maybe it was shot on a
different day than the rest of the video ... I have no idea. She's an absolutely lovely
woman, tired or well-rested.
Yes, one can tell that the "girl smoker" of the first video is now a "woman smoker" in
this video. A couple of wet coughs confirmed that. Frankly, I'm amazed that she
hasn't had the wet coughs all along. The volume of her smoke intake is so surreal
(equalled if, by anybody, maybe Valeria) that if one observes closely, on many hits
off her cigarette, she'll do two FULL nostril exhales and three FULL mouth exhales.
What completes things for me is that Alazne appears to be a very MODEST, SHY
woman with a charming, authentic, blushing smile. There's something about
the combination of a bit of innocence with fierce, "bad girl" smoking that is so
I understand she no longer lives in Barcelona so kudos to SSW for going to the
effort to re-book her for another shooting but, most of all, to Alazne and Fran
for cooperating to make an elegant, powerful, entertaining, and has-to-be-seen-
to-be-believed piece of true art. Thanks, SSW! Thanks, Alazne!"
