Gioia Diliberto, journalist and author of The Collection, reports for Huffington Post that the Amelia Earhart look is in. We’ve selected a photo-gallery and have included the Amelia Trailer with Hilary Swank below. Love it or hate it? Share your thoughts in comments below:

Unlike aviators lost in the sky, fashions always come back. Among the styles recently returned from the dead are micro minis, skinny belts, jumpsuits, platform shoes — and now the Amelia Earhart look. It’s been revived by Jean Paul Gaultier for the fall Hermes ready-to-wear collection soon arriving in stores, and it features shirts with narrow ties, trousers, leather pencil skirts and bomber jackets. At the Hermes show in Paris last March, models wore aviator hats and goggles with the clothes, as the roar of prop-plane engines set up beyond the catwalk filled the air. “I was inspired by a woman, I forgot her name, an American pilot with very short, wavy hair who was wearing an aviator jacket, which I love, and a little scarf that was so Hermes,” Gaultier told the Associated Press. – from Huffpo
