DRESS UP TO GET DOWN!
Fly Me To The Moon - Julie London
When Julie London sang of ‘playing among the stars’ we assume she meant fashion stars, and by that the reigning queen of fashion Miuccia Prada. As no one says Fly Me to the Moon quite like 60s air hostesses, a reference which was all over the Prada catwalk according to The Guardian (and our own eyes). This also happens to chime perfectly with the new Pan Am series starring Christina Ricci that’s about to kick off in the States that we discuss on this week’s Peppermint Candy. How fortuitous! In fact, nothing says sexy and sophisticated quite like vintage airline uniforms. And Pan Am were so certain of their place at the forefront of air travel that they even set up a waiting list for flights to the moon and handed out “First Moon Flights Club” membership cards. We certainly hope Julie London signed up. Whoosh!
