Russian model Viktoria Odintsova is willing to do just about anything to get the perfect shot, even if that means hanging off a 1,000-foot skyscraper. The 22-year-old Instagram star shared a video of her recent photoshoot high atop the Cayan Tower in Dubai in which she dangles off the side of the building while holding onto the hand of a trusted male assistant.
"I still can't believe I did it," Viktoria captioned one of her posts showcasing her death-defying stunt. "Every time I watch the video my palms go sweaty."
Some of Viktoria's three million followers took issue with her risking her life for the sake of a picture, though. "If I was your parent I would smack both you and the guy with the beard!" one commenter wrote.
Odintsova isn't the only Russian beauty braving a high-rise for a photo opportunity. Angela Nikolau's Instagram is dedicated to her dangerous shoots which usually take place at the top of a skyscraper. She, too, has received several comments cautioning her about her hazardous hobby. However, she has also racked up nearly half a million followers and countless likes for her photos.
