Amelia Earhart might be best known for having been the first woman to make a solo transatlantic flight in 1932 as depicted in the new movie Amelia (in theaters October 23), but her contribution to fashion does not go unrecognized. She took risks in both her love of flying and dressing. And although her disappearance still remains a mystery, her style legacy lives on. For one, bomber jackets—from leather to pleather—still grace edgy wardrobes today.
