The Queen of the Skies...

Air pioneer Amelia Earhart was born today in 1897. Remembering her today, made me think of this great Earhart--inspired editorial. Influential in the world of aviation, Earhart has even become a fashion muse to Jean Paul Gaultier for his Fall/Winter 2009 Hermes collection.

So we'll be seeing more loose fit menswear for fall. I just love anything comfortable being brought back to style.

I've always been interested in the famous Amelias, especially since there are so few of them. Earhart is really inspiring! What a fantastic editorial.

I love those pictures! I'm glad Amelia Earheart still gets the attention she deserves...she was a brilliant woman and still a relevant icon for today.

These are amazing. I was obsessed with Amelia when I was a child. I love the vintage feel of these photos. Fabulous editorial! :)
