Some of the wings look quite weighty. How heavy do they get? I have had wings weigh as much as 22 pounds. After it gets to a certain point, they have to sit on the model’s hips if they are too heavy. Lindsay Ellingson had to have it on her hips last year because it was 22 pounds and it started turning her arms blue and cutting off her circulation. We can’t have a pretty girl with blue arms! She is a trooper, she has had several heavy ones. - ELLE.com
Here’s a Sneak Peek at What the Victoria’s Secret Angels Will Be Wearing at the Show
Behind the Scenes: Victoria's Secret Fashion Show “We used laminated cellophane and monofilament to create this veiny texture. The inspiration behind this set of wings was fish — they sent me all these images of beautiful goldfish and fighting fish to work from. This is fabric that has been dyed and heat-cut to look like sea anemone.” — Armando Farfan Jr.
