Who says the fashion industry isn't full of brainiacs? Ted Southern, the engineer who makes the wings for Victoria's Secret's Angels, is now working with NASA on a spacesuit. That's astronaut fashion, kind of, right? He dishes to the NY Post: "Not surprisingly, one of his favorite jobs involved outfitting Heidi Klum in giant wings to go with her Victoria's Secret lingerie. He has also helped put together her famously over-the-top Halloween costumes. "Heidi is by far the best and easiest model to work with," Southern reports. "She's so animated and fun to be around. She's friendly to everyone." Gisele Bundchen? Not so much. "She's really tough. She's always screaming, 'What the f--k is this?'" [NYP]
