Photographer Mariano Vivanco flashes Rihanna, styled in aviator-inspired looks by Mel Ottenberg, The pop star channels Amelia Earhart in sexy, utilitarian fashions in 'Rihanna Takes Flight' for Harper's Bazaar US March 2017./ Hair by Yusef Williams; makeup by Francesca Tolot Harper's shares a delicious excerpt from Amelia Earhart's 1929 book 'Plane Clothes'. Here's a partial share: Usually, on a solo flight, I wear low-heeled shoes, because with low heels it is easier to keep my feet braced on the rudder bar… On the Friendship flight I couldn't follow the rule of wearing sports clothes. The trip was a pioneering one, and comforts were not thought of. Clothes suitable for "roughing it" had to be taken. For instance, there was no step from the pontoons to the door, and I couldn't have jumped into the plane in a skirt. Further,…we had dumped everything to sit on, to save weight. Squatting on a rolled flying suit, or kneeling on one knee, or sliding between the large gas tanks wouldn't have left much of a ladylike ensemble…On my transcontinental flight, recently, I had to battle against a severe sunburn…I kept a tube of cold cream in the cockpit, and when I was not otherwise engaged I tried to keep some on my face as a protection. I flew the same plane that Lady Heath, the famous English woman flier, used on her trip from London to Cape Town and back. I remember her telling me one of the absurdities of her journey was pulling out a powder puff and powdering her nose over the South African wastes.
