Now & Then: Amelia Earhart

Tuesday, August 24, 2010

If Amelia Earhart were still alive she'd be wearing Charlotte Ronson's Fall Ready to Wear 2010 Collection.


Amelia Earhart was a bit of a tomboy, always flying, always racing and always working on planes. She was pictured a lot wearing pants and jackets and generally clothing that would let her move around easily, but they always seemed to be beautifully tailored and perfectly in touch with what was at the height of fashion at the time. Charlotte Ronson's Fall 2010 Ready to Wear line seems to fit the bill perfectly. If you have a suggestion about who you'd like to see next, let me know and if you missed Frida Kahlo, Georgia Okeefe, Marie Curie or Emily Dickinson go here!

  2. oooooh jane austen! good one- she's def. going on the list.

  3. Yay Amelia! I've always admired her grit and determination and going after such a risky notion. Love it.

  4. I absolutely adore this blog feature. Fashion & history mash up!
