Amelia's Costume Designers Could Fly Away With An Oscar

Amelia: Hilary Swank plays the aviatrix with a wanderlust and joie de vivre.  Her impeccable style was sensible and comfortable, yet refined. And Earheart’s signature pilot scarves were practically ubiquitous, serving as a counterpoint to her otherwise masculine sensibilities. This Aquascutum chiffon checked scarf fits the bill, and complements both a sweater or a cropped leather jacket.

As she set new flying records, raised the bar for other female pilots, and captivated American society, she never forgot her Kansas roots. Amelia lived in a world of men, and mostly dressed the part. Trousers, collared shirts, and of course, the bomber jacket–every pilot’s essential. The Doma Leather Bomber Jacket is a contemporary version of the original.

Earhart met with accolades wherever she went. She also had to make nearly constant public appearances to finance flights.  It’s hard to find a lot of 1930s-style hats that aren’t vintage, but this Feather Detail Cloche is a good choice. The nearly brimless style is feminine, and the felt-wool will keep your head warm during chilly receptions.

Overall: Movie: B-  /  Costuming: A

Since Amelia’s style is the clear winner, cop more of her look with the best leather jackets, hats, and celebrity scarves.
