THE MOST FABULOUS FLIGHT ATTENDANT FASHIONS IN HISTORY

THE MOST FABULOUS FLIGHT ATTENDANT FASHIONS IN HISTORY

Is there anything more jet-set fabulous than a chicly turned-out flight attendant? In honor of Pedro Almodóvar’s new ultra-gay romp I’m So Excited, which takes place on a Madrid to Mexico City flight and features some fabulous flight attendant fashion, we’ve rounded up our favorite moments of In-flight Service Coordinator cuteness from a cavalcade of international carriers through the years. So please fasten your seat belts, stow your carry-ons and prepare yourself for a runway show at 37,000 feet.Braniff_C7.jpg1965 — Pucci X Braniff airlines
