Amelia Biopic Fashion Inspiration



This past Friday at the Ziegfeld Theater, I saw a screening of Amelia, starring Hilary Swank and Richard Gere. The movie doesn't deter that much from fact, there is a love triangle thrown in but mostly historically accurate. The costumes are stunning. I'm talking amazing, functional fashion reflecting career, modernity and femininity in the 20's and 30's. Not only was Amelia Earhart a trailblazer for aeronautics and of course feminism, but she also relevant in branding a. After some research I found out that amongst being a pilot and teacher, Earhart was also a womenswear designer and she also had a line of luggage. Earhart's style is still reflected today. The leather bombers, wide leg trousers, silk scarves and that haircut, are still seen today. Kasia Walicka Maimone is a guaranteed Oscar Nominee. Check out some stills from the movie below.
