Leave it to the Italians to take something as utilitarian as base jumping and turn it into an elegant fashion cat walk, starting with the gorgeous/crazy Roberta Mancino base jumping in high heels and a sequin dress.

From the description:

Roberta Mancino expresses her passion for fashion and her love of base jumping in this truly extraordinary “High Fashion” GoPro video starring Giovanni Silvestri, Andrey Karr, Luca Tondelli, and Maurizio Di Palma. Watch them jump from Italy’s Monte Brento looking fresh and stylish in Roberto Cavalli high end clothing. If you’re going to base-jump off a perfectly good cliff, you might as well look spectacular doing it.

It’s weird. There’s something about seeing them jumping in street clothes that make the jumps look crazier than the regular ones, at least to me.
