As if the long legs and skimpy lingerie weren't captivating enough, the "angels" walking down the latest Victoria’s Secret runway, are wearing something pretty fascinating: 3D wings.

Try to look past the six foot model in her lingerie to the wings on her back.

Ask yourself -- how did this angel get her wings?
They're actually printed - by a 3d printer.

This year Victoria’s Secret Annual Fashion Show is going high tech.
Shapeways printed the costume to runway model Lindsay Ellingson's exact measurements.

And fitted them around this Victoria’s secret model, whose proportions are identical to Lindsay’s.

The wings are meant to look like snowflakes, but they're high fashion -- so they're covered in Swarovski Crystals.

It's a costume that required a clothing architect and high level math.
It's not the first time we've seen tech hit the runway.

In the past fashion designer Asher Levine used Makerbot 3D printers to print sunglasses for the runway -- he also embedded a location tracking chip into high fashion jackets another season.

The folks at the forefront of fashion -- now taking tips from the techies.
