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 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. What do real flight attendants (the PC term) think of the buzz about their profession? ”As long as we’re not portrayed as annoying bimbos, it’s fine,” says American Airlines’ Laura Maus.
