Rihanna Rocks The Cover Of Harper Bazaar Channels Amelia Earhart.

Shut it down Ri!

The singer channels  Amelia Earhart in her latest magazine cover.

Here is portion of the cover story:

What does the woman aviator wear? This question is asked me as often as any other connected with aviation. Ten years ago I could have described a flying costume. It would have consisted of helmet, goggles, leather jacket, breeches, and some sort of high boots. There were no traditions but those of wartime flying to follow, and both men and women adopted or modified it to suit commercial needs. Also, flying fields were usually dirty, planes were crude, and there were no refinements in facilities, such as passenger waiting-rooms, and so forth.

Altogether, the clothing had to be rather rough. Since the war, flying has under gone the same sort of changes that automobiling did previously. Do you remember the dashing linen dusters and gauntlets and veils of 1908? They constituted an “automobiling costume,” and of course one couldn’t tour without the proper accessories. At the present time, with the development of luxurious passenger planes, …there isn’t the necessity for special dress. One wears ordinary street clothes. Why not? There are comfortable upholstered seats, one can move about at will, read, or write, or sleep. On one line a buffet luncheon is served at no extra charge.
