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.

"This profile follows Amelia Earhart (b. 1897, declared dead in 1939) from being an active child who preferred bloomers to being a gender-norm-defying aviator who became known for dressing with sleek, simple flair—and who eventually began her own clothing line, which offered women comfortable, washable, and tuckable separates. 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.” Marlin’s soft-brushed spreads, rendered in assured digital lines, use vintage color palettes. A biography of a famous flier distinguished by its uncommon lens. Back matter includes an author’s note. Ages 8–10. (Feb.)" - Publishers Weekly
