From its tempestuous, turbulent atmosphere to its consistently moving and shifting tectonic plates, the Earth can be a very dangerous place to live. Devastation can take on many guises; hurricanes lashing the southern United States, blistering fires sweeping Australia's bushland, earthquakes crumbling cities in one bold seismic move, sink holes swallowing homes into darkness and walls of water hurtling toward island continents with such speed and ferocity that they leave no chance of escape.

Welcome to 72 Dangerous Places to Live - a fascinating discovery of the world's riskiest places to live and the people who choose to inhabit them. A visual adventure and a lesson in history, geology, science and technology, the series looks back over past events that have devastated cities, towns and villages, taken hundreds of thousands of human lives and ruined world economies.

With explanatory graphics, animation, eyewitness accounts and experts' opinions, each place is fully investigated and then ranked on a sliding danger scale with a exciting countdown in the final episode revealing the most dangerous place to live.

Combining startling footage and first-hand accounts from the people who have been affected, displaced, left homeless and seeking refuge, 72 Dangerous Places to Live explores human resilience in the face of devastating natural disasters and destruction, the brutal power of Mother Nature and the human spirit to survive, pick up the pieces and rebuild.

The Dangerous Woman Tour was the third concert tour by American singer Ariana Grande to promote her third studio album, Dangerous Woman (2016). The tour began on February 3, 2017 in Phoenix, Arizona, and ended on September 21, 2017 in Hong Kong. The tour was interrupted on May 22, 2017 by a terrorist bombing at the end of Grande's Manchester Arena concert, which killed 22 concert-goers and injured over 500. After organizing and performing at the One Love Manchester benefit concert, Grande resumed the tour on June 7, 2017.

Most of the looks are my direct aesthetic, so I put my stamp on it. It was just a certain silhouette that she wanted and certain colors, and that's how we met in the middle. We had a couple of looks that were in her silhouette, which is usually high-waisted bodysuits, shorts, skirts and crop tops. It's very flattering on her so we have a lot of items in that shape.

For the show's visual, Grande worked with her stylist Law Roach and designer Bryan Hearns, creating a more “mature” and “growth” look for Grande. Describing the concept of the outfits used during the shows, Hearns stated: “It's about making an adult Ariana, marrying her silhouette with what's happening in fashion right now, so a big theme is sportswear—everything is oversized, there are straps everywhere, and cool hardware ... It's definitely more edgy, it's more adult, but still playful and young.” Talking about the opening look, a high-neck black bodysuit, with a flirty skirt on top, he revealed that the look was designed one day before of the first show. He explained: “I slept for four hours. It was stressful, but it was exciting. It was awesome.” The look was inspired by Audrey Hepburn. During an interview with Billboard, Hearns said:

He also revealed that “everything was a mixture of leather, denim, strappy fabrics and hardware.” “We use a lot of sweatshirt fabric because everything is very relaxed-looking. It doesn’t have a lot going on in terms of the details.” The look styled by Grande during the fourth act of the show, a crop-top with blue pants, was inspired by 90s styles (mainly the R&B group TLC).
