For September's Harper's Bazaar, Rachel Zoe poses for a spread based on a literal interpretation of one of her favorite phrases—"I Die"—in which designers like Marc Jacobs and Vera Wang elaborately (and fashionably) kill her.

The photos—shot by Douglas Friedman—also feature murder scenarios with Francisco Costa, Brian Atwood and Michael Kors.

As nice as it is to see some of the faces who actually create the styles, I tire of photo shoots where the theme is "the murder of a pretty young woman." Crime scene-looking ads, models splayed out on the floor like corpses, whatever. I get that it's fantasy, it's art, it's play. These particular images aren't especially violent or triggering, but they do participate in an ongoing trend. A trend that makes me uncomfortable.

Get a new idea, folks. How about "models go to the carnival and pet llamas"? Or "models go to a shoemaker's and pretend to cobble some neat shoes" or "models playing with Legos." You can have these ideas for free; you're welcome, fashion industry.
