Soaring in Style: How Amelia Earhart Became a Fashion Icon

Long before Amelia Earhart became a superstar, she was a girl who longed to touch the stars. But the dresses women had to wear at the time made those dreams seem almost impossible. Amelia didn't let that stop her. As a young aviator breaking records and expectations, she learned to fly her plane with flair. Later, she dared to create a trendsetting fashion line for active women like herself. Soaring in Style tells the groundbreaking story of how Amelia Earhart defied expectations in the air and on the ground to become America’s first celebrity fashion designer.

Publishers Weekly

"The late Wilson’s narrative smoothly presents accounts of Earhart’s aerial accomplishments alongside stylish stories, for example, about flying with Eleanor Roosevelt: “In long gloves and a satin gown, Amelia took a turn at the controls and guided the plane through the starry sky. As shiny as sequins, the stars seemed close enough to touch.” . . . .A biography of a famous flier distinguished by its uncommon lens." - Publishers Weekly

Booklist - Emily Graham

"Wilson's latest is an absolutely delightful introduction to Earheart's lesser-known passion, and it's a pleasure to indulge in entertaining anecdotes that that go beyond her famous flights. The cheerful illustrations capture the wonder of flying along with the joy of creation, and an author’s note expands upon fascinating details more fully. Fashion is anything but frivolous in this entertaining ode to innovation." - Booklist
