Mile high club

Maybe it’s all that time glam people spend in first class, but jet-setting is on the fashion radar. The fall collections included Hogan’s PanAm bag, Gucci’s airline slippers, earplugs, and sleep mask, and a Marc Jacobs suit inspired by ladies who launch. Hollywood is also on standby. Almost Famous‘s Kate Hudson does a stewardess imitation, while Zooey Deschanel leaves home to fly the friendly skies. Sex and the City‘s Cynthia Nixon faked being a stew to get more dates. (According to websites like http://www.dateaflightattendant.com, she may have been on to something.) Next up: Bounce, with Jennifer Grey as an airline rep, and View From the Top‘s Gwyneth Paltrow as a girl who dreams of pushing the drink cart.
