Too-skinny models have come under fire in the past, but disturbing ‘deathvertisements’ take advertising to a whole new level of macabre.

Like at Fashion Week, some designers go to extreme lengths off the runway to sell their luxurious labels. Thumb though any fashion magazine and see for yourself. We get that competition in the fashion world is fierce. Designers need to be creative to stay relevant. But using ‘dead’ models to sell collections? This is a definite no.

When Madonna posted an image of herself wearing a full on Game of Thrones Khaleesi costume on Instagram last week we weren’t exactly surprised—this is the woman who rolled into the Grammy Awards wearing a tuxedo and a grill earlier this winter, so why not celebrate the Jewish holiday of Purim with a leather corset and a pair of tiny dragons? Still, we were hypnotized by her white-blonde, braided Daenerys Targaryen hair.
