Leggy lady: From the side it looked like Rihanna had nothing on under her oversized blazer

With no rope or safety harness, the youth clambers about the crane seemingly untroubled by how high up he is
If you have even the slightest fear of heights, look away now. These pictures taken from footage showing a Russian teenager climbing around a crane 1,000ft up in the sky are enough to make your palms sweat even if you have never suffered from vertigo. The youth is seen walking along the crane as if it were a tightrope, without showing even a flicker of fear at being so far from the ground.
Hundreds of feet above even the roofs of the tower blocks, the fearless youth walks casually along a crane
Without a safety harness, hard hat or even a rope, he confidently walks - and even skips - along the red metal crane in his trainers. The three-minute clip, posted on Youtube, shows his astonishing courage (or should that read foolhardiness?) as he casually strips off his jumper and puts on a woolly hat for his sky-high work-out The boy, who looks little older than 16 or 17, then climbs over the side and hangs from just one hand.
Balanced precariously on top of the crane's dusty bars, the youth clambers about it with casual skill
The cars in the street below are so tiny they look like toys as he does monkey bars dangling off the crane. And the roofs of the surrounding tower blocks look a long way below the crane where the boy is gambolling about like a carefree toddler in a playground. In one heart-stopping moment, he does pull-ups with one hand as he hangs from the crane, before pulling himself up and back on top of it again.
Dangling vertiginously, the youth performed his death-defying stunts without a care in the world
The cars below are so tiny they look like children's toys as the young man does monkey bars in the sky above them
Filmed by a friend, the youth is shown dangling from the crane's dusty bars without even a rope in case he falls

She would have been hoping for a grand entrance as she headed to the Arqiva British Academy Television Awards (Baftas) on Sunday night. But while it may have not been the grandest of red carpet arrivals at London's Royal Festival Hall, Millie Mackintosh certainly made her mark.

But the gusts of wind soon left her red-faced as she was forced to stop the gown flying up to reveal her under garments. Although she took it in good jest as she laughed and ensured she held the dress down in front of the many stunned snappers.
Perfect pose: SHE arrived hoping to just show off her stylish outfit but gave onlookers more than they bargained for

Emotional: Sienna Miller cried as she picked up the award for Leading Actress at the TV Baftas on Sunday evening
Actress Sheridan Smith turned the airwaves blue on Sunday evening as she picked up the highly coveted Leading Actress British Academy Television Award for her role as Mrs Biggs. The shocked 31-year-old wept with joy, while mouthing ‘f**king hell’ as she took to the stage at the Royal Festival Hall to receive her award. Overwhelmed and incredulous that she had beaten off the likes of A-lister Sienna Miller, the actress began her speech by saying: ‘Is this a wind up? Is this for a real?’
Amazed: Sheridan began her speech by asking whether it was a wind up as she couldn't believe she had beaten the likes of Sienna Miller
She continued: ‘You shouldn't cry, you look like a k**b. Oh f**k, sorry. I'll just hide behind that (lifting up the award).' ‘I don't think I deserve it. It's because of the Mrs Biggs team…’ After much crying and a smattering of swearing she concluded: ‘I'm so sorry, how embarrassing, I can’t believe it.’
Overwhelmed: Sheridan said she didn't think she deserved the award and it should go to the whole team
Mrs Biggs: The actress won her award for her role in the five part series Mrs Biggs
Letting it out: Not concerned with remaining prim and proper the star let her emotions out
Leggy: Sheridan looked stunning in her black minidress which showed off her slim legs
After receiving the award, she still remained amazed and said: ‘I'm just in complete and utter shock. 'When the nominations were announced I thought it was my mate winding me up until I went on Twitter and checked it was real. ‘I was so convinced there was no chance I would win. But when they said my name it was like an out of body experience. It was surreal.’
Sheer shock: Sheridan almost looked like she was about to be sick when her name was called out
Can't cope: The star burst into tears straight away and raised her hands to her face
All grown up! Selena, who turns 21 in July, appeared on the program to promote her upcoming world tour and new summer album, Stars Dance
She's a former Disney girl who shot to fame thanks to her wholesome and innocent image, but Selena Gomez couldn't be further away from her Disney persona in her new music video. The 20-year-old Spring Breakers actress turned up the heat in her latest video for new single Come and Get It, daring to bare in a number of risque outfits. In one of the more raunchier looks, the singer shows off her enviable figure in a lacey see-through number, proving she's definitely all grown up.
Not so Disney anymore: The brunette beauty's music video for her new single Come & Get It, helmed by Anthony Mandler, already has over 15.3 million views on Vimeo
The sheer dress exposes her never-ending legs as she takes up a number of sexy poses in a country field. Pairing her barely-there ensemble with a crimson lip and a heavy gold chain, the Wizards of Waverly place actress has shown that she's well and truly on her way to torching her squeaky clean image for good.
Look at me: Selena shows she's not a shy girl
Selena teamed up director Anthony Mandler, who was responsible for Taylor Swift's I Knew You Were Trouble video, for the sexy scenes, which later go on to see her cavorting with a hunky male. Turning up the heat another notch, the star goes on to pose in a pool of water seemingly topless and wearing nothing besides a heavy necklace and the same crimson lips. According to the singer - who has been traveling tirelessly up and down the country to promote her new single - she was a bit worried about the concept for her new video in the beginning.
It's all in the hair: The star finished her look with voluminous hair and crimson lips

The best behind: The rugby player-turned-model shows off his incredibly pert behind as he poses in boxers and briefs for D.HEDRAL's Spring/Summer 2013 campaign
If Kelly Brook has ever regretted ending her relationship with rugby hunk Thom Evans, she better look away now. The 28-year-old rugby player-turned-model shows off his incredibly pert behind as he poses in boxers and briefs for D.HEDRAL's Spring/Summer 2013 campaign. Thom's latest shoot sees him modelling the Anglefit range, which the brand say are designed to 'lift and enhance' a man's bottom.
Making shapes: Thom shows off every single one of his muscles as he pulls some shapes on location
Previous photoshoots have been slightly more modest - this is the first time that Thom has showed off his super-toned behind. Each pair of the pants, from the Gigolo Joe collection, has been designed to help lift the bottom and give a more defined and pert look.
Rippling abs: Sporting a pair of the brand's Gigolo Joe briefs, Thom showcases how they can work to perfection
The pants are styled with a distinctive Y-shape to the rear to accentuate the shape of the buttocks. Showcasing the pants to perfection (he is perhaps the last man in need of bottom-enhancing briefs) Thom pulls out his best poses for the shoot, locking eyes with the lens and demonstrating the underwear's so-called 'pulling power'. The photos, shot on a rocky location by Daniel Jaems, see Thom show off his finely honed muscles.
Ready for his close up: DHEDRAL's twitter account tweeted this zoomed in shot, just to remind us of the full potential of the underwear
Thom, who has been dating former 90210 actress Jessica Lowndes since his two-year relationship with Kelly ended in January, has modelled for several of the brand's campaigns. The new collection incorporates the brand’s patented Anglefit Technology. And the pants - made of what the firm describe as 'super-light, anti-sagging, quick-drying microfabric' - certainly hug Thom's shape in the steamy shots.
Peekaboo: Locking eyes with the camera, Thom shows off his muscular physique
The firm say that their unique new technology gives 'enhanced figure-hugging definition and comfort'. The fabric has been designed to stretch depending on the shape of the wearer’s bottom to create a second skin and enhance the appearance of the rear. The D.HEDRAL collection is available online now.
Professional: Thom looks seductively into the camera as he poses with a female model in a pair of D.HEDRAL's seamless boxers
Jealous, us? Thom and Jessica, seen sharing a kiss at Coachella, have been dating since February after the Glasgow Warriors player moved to Los Angeles to concentrate on his acting career
Look away now, Kelly: Thom with ex-girlfriend Kelly Brook, whom he dated for two years
In the dark: Jon Voight has revealed that he only found out about daughter Angelina Jolie's double mastectomy online. They are seen here together in 2001
On Monday Angelina Jolie made a very brave move as she revealed she recently underwent a preventative double mastectomy. And one person who learned about the surgery on the internet along with the rest of the world was the actress' father Jon Voight.
Keeping quiet: Jon has said he saw the actress just one day before she published her story in the New York Times
Voight, who reconciled with Jolie after a 10 year feud in 2011 praised his 'extraordinary' daughter but was understandably surprised - especially as he had seen Angelina just one day before her announcement in the New York Times. 'My love and admiration for my daughter can't be explained in words,' the actor told the New York Daily News. 'I saw her two days ago with my son Jamie. We all got together for his birthday, with her and Brad [Pitt]. But I didn't know. It wasn't obvious at all.
So proud: Angelina, right, poses with her fiancé Brad Pitt and his mother Jane and father William at the Oscars in 2012; Jane has paid tribute to her daughter-in-law
'I found out [Tuesday] morning. I was as surprised as anyone and deeply moved by the way she’s handled this. She’s a very extraordinary person, the way she examined it and what she shared.' Angelina made the decision to have the surgery after learning she is a carrier of the BRCA1 gene and had an 87 per cent chance of contracting breast cancer and a 50 per cent risk of getting ovarian cancer.
Motivation: Angelina's mother Marcheline Bertrand was just 56 when she dies of cancer; tests revealed Angelina had the same faulty gene
Family matters: Angelina Jolie did her utmost to keep life as normal as possible for her and partner Brad Pitt's six children
The Salt star continued working throughout three months of procedures and kept them a secret from everyone other than her fiance Brad, who was seen leaving a Hollywood studio on Tuesday, and their six children. But Jon, 74, says he 'absolutely' respects Angelina's choice to keep her decision from him for that time. 'I completely understand,' he explained. 'I want the focus to be on the inspiration.' Jon revealed he spoke to Angelina on Tuesday and she talked him through what it all means. 'She just explained to me and educated me on this stuff,' he said.
Supportive: Angelina wrote that her fiance Brad Pitt was with her for 'every minute' of her surgeries
Voight fell out with Jolie in 2002 when he accused her of having ‘serious mental problems’, while Jolie criticised him for having an affair behind her mother’s back. It was Angelina's fiance Brad who eventually engineered their reconciliation and acted as a go-between. Speaking in October 2011 Jon claimed he'd had an emotional epiphany and that he began living for his family after everything changed 'in a moment'. 'I suddenly saw things differently and everything shifted. That one moment changed my whole life,' he said. 'It gave me back my daughter and my family. Being reunited with my Angie is very precious to me. I adore my grandchildren, they are my great love. It makes me so emotional and grateful.'
Wedding bells? Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have been subject to fevered speculation over an impending marriage since Pitt said 'the time is nigh'
Angelina Jolie plans to marry Brad Pitt 'sooner rather than later' following her gruelling double mastectomy. Angelina, 37, today praised her fiance for being 'loving and supportive', and a source told MailOnline: 'Angie is keen on a wedding and the kids are clamouring for a marriage and keep asking Brad and Angie when it's happening. 'Brad has been caught up in production turmoil with his new film World War Z, so there's been no wedding planning as a result, but Angie has said it will happen sooner rather than later.
Hurry up mom! A source told MailOnline that the mother-of-six's excited children keep asking their parents when they are going to tie the knot
'They are all for all intents and purposes married, but it's become clear that it's important to them to make it official.' The A-list couple got engaged in 2011 when Brad proposed with a $500,000 diamond ring and in November, the actor said they would be walking down the aisle 'soon'. Speaking at the Cinema Society screening of his film Killing Them Softly, in New York, Brad, 48, admitted: 'I am getting more pressure from my kids, and it is something I want to do within their lifetime, but I also feel like the time has come.
Reception: The couple are said to want another wedding venue other than their 17th-century Chateau Miraval, the $60 million estate which they own in the village of Correns, southern France
'The time is nigh. It's soon. I got a good feeling about it.' While he stopped short of confirming a wedding date, Brad, did reveal what the couple have in mind for their big day, adding: 'Just family. Keep it simple. Keep it simple – really.'
From actor to director: Angelina at the premiere of her film 'In The Land Of Blood And Honey', which she directed, at the Berlin Film Festival with Brad in 2012
However, in March, Oscar winner Angelina put speculation they had already tied the knot to rest when she turned up in Africa wearing a gold band on her wedding finger, but when asked whether it was a wedding ring, replied: 'No, it's not.' While sources say Angelina would still like to get married in France, the pair do not want to wed at their own estate Chateau Mirval and instead want to find a fresh location that 'addresses their security concerns and desire to keep it private.'
Close to a kiss: Katie Holmes nearly locked lips with her co-star, Canadian actor Luke Kirby, on the set of her new movie in New York on Tuesday
She hasn’t been linked to a serious boyfriend since divorcing Tom Cruise. And Katie Holmes certainly seems to be enjoying single life, even if it is all part of the job. The 34-year-old actress was seen getting close to her co-star on the New York set of her latest movie Manic Days on Tuesday and didn’t mind cosying up to the hunk.
Keep your hands to yourself! But the 34-year-old was not tactile with the hunk as they bumped noses
At one point the thespian was spotted staring intently into his eyes as they filmed a close-up shot. Despite pressing their noses against each other, the pair kept their hands to themselves for the intense shot. Katie’s palms were firmly to her side while Canada’s Luke Kirby placed his on his bottom.
Good spirits: She laughed after their Mania Days scene taking place in New York
Afterwards, Katie could be seen laughing as she walked around the set with him, also grinning and making goofy facial expressions as she stood alone later. The onscreen couple dressed similarly in denim trousers and plain tops to record scenes, both brunettes sporting slightly curly tresses.
He's got a fan! The brunette clasped her hands together with glee as she chatted to the actor and crew between scenes
Work, not pleasure: Katie holds on tight as she films with her handsome co-star
From the smile on her face, it's clear Katie is enjoying her work. Gripping her hunky co-stars hands in her own earlier, the Katie flashed him a heartfelt grin. And while the two were in character at the time, it's likely that working with such a handsome co-star is a perk of the job for Katie.
Gritty location: The duo filmed on the steps of a church in New York
Loving life: Katie looks happy as she takes a break between scenes
New inking: Cara Delevingne showed off her first-ever tattoo by posting a snap of a lion on her right forefinger onto her Twitter page on Tuesday morning
She's set herself apart from her tattoo-crazy pals Rita Ora and Rihanna with her fresh-faced look - until now. But it would appear Cara Delevingne has now joined the gang after undergoing her first-ever inking. Posting a snap of her new body art on her Instagram page on Tuesday morning, the model of the moment showed off an unusual lion design on her right forefinger.
Just inked: The 20-year-old model headed to New York based tattoo artist, Bang Bang, to have her first piece of body art
And it would appear her showbiz chum Ri-Ri was one of the influences in her decision to go under the needle, with the Burberry beauty thanking the 25-year-old singer for recommending her favourite New York-based tattoo parlour, Bang Bang.
'So happy': Cara seemed thrilled with the design, and treated her Twitter followers to numerous snaps
Writing on her Twitter page, Cara said: 'My first tattoo!! Lions rule! Thank you so much @BangBang @badgalriri.' Gushing even further over her new addition, she later added: 'I am so happy! Thanks again @BangBang @elemags ! RAWWWW.'
Casual: The Burberry beauty is known for her low-key street style

Little bit wet then! Leonardo DiCaprio managed to still have a smile on his face as he addressed the crowds in the pouring weather
It's hailed as one of the most glamorous events in the showbiz calendar, but even the Cannes Film Festival can't escape the latest dreary spring weather. Just days after celebrities attending the TV BAFTAs in London were marred by windy weather ruining their perfect looks, the Hollywood elite were left with damp gowns after the 2013 Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony was blighted by rain. Leonardo DiCaprio was among the A List guests who were left drenched and clutching umbrellas on Wednesday night as they made their way across the sodden red carpet.
Raincheck: The cast of The Great Gatsby huddled up as the heavens opened on Wednesday
He appeared in good spirits as he greeted the crowds, some of whom had surprisingly camped out since Sunday to grab a glimpse of their favourite stars. But as the event continued, so did the outpouring of rain, with stars including Carey Mulligan, Freida Pinto, Nicole Kidman and Georgia May Jagger all needing helpers to hold umbrellas over them. And Leonardo's Great Gatsby co-star Carey Mulligan experienced the difficulty of trying to remain glamorous in torrential rain.

'I suddenly went 'What the xxxx' and I didn't realise there was a TV camera in my face recording everything' she chuckled as she told the Mail. Even so, she still looked very pretty in a pink couture Dior gown. Meanwhile, Nicole Kidman said the storms that soaked the Cannes Film Festival Red Carpet didn't bother her. 'It's only rain.

Touch of sparkle: Emma wore three bling rings on her ears

Although she kept the rest of her look simple as she wore her brunette locks in a tied up bun with her fringe scraped into a side parting. She gave her good girl image an edge by adding a touch of bling on her ears in the form of three sparkling cuffs.

Sultry siren: Emma Watson oozes old school glamour in the June/July issue of W Magazine as she admits 'being sexy' was never her goal
Her character in the new film The Bling Ring is all about trashy outfits and wild behaviour. But Emma Watson is the complete opposite of her on-screen alter ego in a new W Magazine spread.

Emotional: David Beckham said in an interview that he thinks the time is right to retire from football
How does the richest football player in the world get richer? By retiring. David Beckham yesterday announced he was hanging up his boots for good and giving that famous right foot a well-deserved rest because he wanted to ‘go out on the top’. That may mean no more balls being curled into the back of the net in his trademark style, but the former England captain can console himself with the thought that his earnings are set to soar.
Curtain call: David Beckham, pictured at the Paris Saint Germain training ground, announced he is retiring from football after a 21-year career
The east London-raised star and his wife Victoria are set to become worth at least £300million with marketing experts predicting his ‘unique’ appeal will last for the next 20 years. It will mean an ever-upwards trajectory for ‘Brand Beckham’ now that the 38-year-old can concentrate solely on his commercial career.
Bumper retirement: Marketing experts believe David and Victoria, pictured at the royal wedding in 2011, will become worth more than £300million
The Beckhams are already one of the richest celebrity couples in the country with a combined fortune estimated to be worth £190million. David’s football earnings had become such a small part of his total income that he was able to give his estimated £3million salary from new club Paris St Germain to charity. The couple are now set to base themselves in London after their four children – Brooklyn, 14, Romeo, ten, Cruz, eight, and 21-month-old Harper – settled in the capital.

David will play a greater role in supporting his wife’s perfume and fashion brand dVb, which is valued at £30million. And he will concentrate on exploiting sponsorship and endorsement deals such as those he enjoyed with Diet Pepsi, Samsung and Marks & Spencer. The ex-Manchester United star has already lined up a £20million role as an ambassador for Sky television, in addition to a £50million deal he has signed to be an ambassador for the Chinese super league. He is also fronting Sainsbury’s move into the sports sponsorship arena.

In March, Beckham beat Barcelona’s Lionel Messi to be crowned the richest player in the world according to the Goal Rich List. Long-term sponsor Adidas took to Twitter to mark Beckham’s retirement with a tactical tweet saying: ‘David Beckham – always #allin.’ The post links to a close-up of the star’s Predator football boots with the brand’s global slogan ‘always all in’.

Not his best look: Justin Bieber wore a ridiculous-looking outfit, including knee-length black socks, as he left a convenience store with Lil Twist in West Hollywood on Thursday
He used to be the adorable boy next door who set tween girls' hearts aflutter around the world. But Justin Bieber's fashion sense has grown more and more questionable over the years as he adopts a street style look that comes off as trying too hard. The 20-year-old looked ridiculous in knee-length black socks under baggy shorts as he left a convenience store with a preppy-looking Lil Twist in West Hollywood, California on Thursday.
Street style: The singer wore gold chains around his neck and a backwards baseball cap teamed with aviator shades
Justin paired the ludicrously over-sized shorts with a loose black shirt paired with a purple hoodie and bright purple trainers. He accessorised with long gold chains around his neck, a backwards baseball cap and large aviator shades, which all had the effect of making the singer look a bit silly rather than cool. The pop star showed off his multiple tattoos on his forearm as he pouted while exiting the store with his rapper friend.
Smartened up: Lil Twist looked rather preppy in white trousers and an Aztec-inspired sweater as he stuck close to his superstar buddy
Lil Twist, meanwhile, looked rather smart in baggy white trousers and an Aztec-print sweater teamed with black loafers and a black bowler hat. He was seen sticking close to his superstar pal, no doubt happy to have Justin back home after his world tour. The 20-year-old was likely relieved to still be included in Justin's posse after his recent troublemaking spree.
