British supermodel Kate Moss has come under fire from anti-smoking campaigners after she and pop star Lily Allen were spotted enjoying a cigarette in front of the former's young daughter.

KateMoss was photographed smoking and passing a rolled-up cigarette to the pop star as they sat next to the supermodel's six-year-old daughter Lila Grace during an outing on a yacht in St. Tropez in the French Riviera Sunday, reports

And experts have blasted Moss for failing to consider the harmful effects her habit could have on the child.

"They make no effort to shield the child from the smoke. This will affect how she feels about cigarettes as she grows up. In most cases, children will think, 'If mum does it, it must be okay'," said a spokesperson for the Drugs Destroy Lives charity.
