Lately, Victoria Odintsova, 23, has been criticised for her death-defying shoot, in which she leaned out into thin air – held only by the hand of a male assistant – from the 306-metre (1,004-foot) tall Cayan Tower, the world’s tallest skyscrapers in Dubai.


The Russian first lent backwards over the huge drop and then climbed slowly down on to the ledge before dangling free in the air from the arm of her helper. Apparently, she has more than three million followers on social media and was branded the best thing to come out of Russia.
