Amelia Earhart took her first plane ride in 1920 and promptly wanted to become a pilot herself. Not only did she achieve her aim but also did she set several aviation records such as being the first woman to fly across the Atlantic (as a passenger), in 1928 and the second person to fly solo across the Atlantic, in 1932. When she first appeared to the media and public, she was mocked for her boyish disheveled appearance she emphasized with masculine tailored trousers, leather coats and her leather helmet and goggles replaced by scarves on land: she earned the nickname ‘Lindy - as a reference to Charles Lindbergh - in drag’. Amelia Earhart even launched a brand marketed for ‘the woman who lives actively’ that unfortunately gained no success because of the Great Depression. Her tragic and mysterious disappearance during her attempt to fly around the world, in 1937, completed to establish the aviatrix as a legend. A role model and a fashion icon, she enhanced the androgynous look praised by such celebrities Katherine Hepburn and Marlene Dietrich who also happened to appear on screen as aviators.
