Winslet dares to shoot atop skyscrapers

Highlight Story

Oscar-winning actress Kate Winslet got a bird's eye-view of New York when she did a photo shoot in her underwear and a pin-striped jacket on a skyscraper rooftop.

The 33-year-old also wore a slinky little black dress and stylish four-inch heels for the photo shot and posed for a series of shots for fashion magazine Harper's Bazaar, reminiscent of the famous 'Lunchtime Atop A Skyscraper' photograph of grubby '30s builders eating lunch hundreds of feet above the city streets, reports the Daily Mail online.

"It was dramatic seeing Kate perched on a girder. She looked like one of those construction workers in the famous American skyscraper pictures - only a lot sexier in just her underwear and a pin-striped jacket," said an onlooker.

The shooting took place last week and Winslet had to clamber up a ladder before an assistant followed her with black sling-backs. She then changed into a pinstripe jacket and Bridget Jones-style big knickers for other photographs.

Other poses saw her in a tight-fitting raincoat with fishnet stockings and a one-shouldered white gown.
