You can’t help but fall in love with Emily Ratajkowski. In this case, literally.
The 31-year-old model and author shared a series of posts to Instagram on Friday giving a behind-the-scenes look at the stunt she pulled for a recent shoot.
In the photos and video, Ratajkowski (a recent Hunter College Commencement speaker!) is seen hanging from the ceiling in only his heels and harness. As a testament to her modeling skills, Ratajkowski asked to be nearly naked, quickly falling from two cables, and adding graceful arm and leg movements to make it look effortless and elegant.
The model playfully captioned the post, “I do my own stunts😎” and was praised for her bravery by fellow models in the comments. Alton Mason commented, “🔥🔥🔥🔥” , Shantel Jeffries wrote “Stay fly 😍” and Irina Shayk left the same flame emoji as Mason.
Ratajkowski’s shoot was led by artist TORSO, who has shot campaigns for Mugler, Diesel, and Jean Paul Gaultier, and has photographed celebrities such as Nicki Minaj, Julia Fox, and Bella Hadid. He reposted the shot of the model in his story and tagged his Inez and his Vinoodh on the photographer and his Viktor & Rolf on the brand.
The project began shortly after Ratajkowski was announced as the face of Viktor & Rolf’s fragrance Flowerbomb. She told PEOPLE what her scent and campaign meant to her, who grew up surrounded by perfume.

“I feel like my 60-year-old aunt knows it, but so does my 12-year-old cousin,” she said of the scent. I grew up knowing that.” She described the scent as feeling “feminine without being too delicate” and “punchy” without being “too sweet.”
Ratajkowski learned about perfume from her mother. “I spray it on one wrist, rub it together, then hit it on my neck. That’s what I’ve always done.”
