Further proof that models really are the most fearless people in the fashion industry, Eric Richardson captured this shot of a model balancing on a fire escape ledge at the Hotel Figueroa earlier today. It's not clear as to whether or not the model or the photographer is also responsible for designing the yellow babydoll dress in question, but who else would teeter 100 feet above Figueroa in four inch heels? Maybe she's an actress wanting to get a really awesome headshot. This is LA, after all. [blogdowntown]
