Fashion on Pan Am

Laura, Maggie, and Kate from Pan Am

Set in 1963’s, Pan Am is about fashion as much as it’s about flying.  The show features four girls each with their own store and their own fashion.  I don’t know how the ladies of Pan Am put all those dresses, garters, shoes, bags, pants, and shirts into their bag!  It doesn’t matter what continent they are on, the ladies of Pan Am are always looking fantastic!  Below features each star’s beautiful style in Pan Am, and some fashion ideas inspired by them.

The Uniform:

The Pan Am uniform is something every woman should look for.  It fits well, accentuates a woman’s body, is classic, and looks professional.  It is very simple, yet works, and has become iconic.  You can see Pan Am’s uniform in several movies including Catch Me If You Can and the James Bond movies.

Maggie is the tough girl who had to work hard to get her position as pursor and ever harder to keep it.  She likes to push boundaries and that is reflective of her fashion as well. She wears lots of black, shows some skin, and isn’t afraid to wear something unique.

Laura plays the new girl and Kate’s younger sister.  She is slightly naïve about the world, yet she has a lot of curiosity and excitement about traveling through it.  Her style is very classic.  She sticks primarily to pastels and isn’t provocative or adventurous in her choice of clothes.  Her hair is always perfect and she stays within the rules.

Laura is maturing over the course of the film. Here she is in Cuba showing a little sun kissed skin

Kate is Laura’s older sister and a spy for the CIA.  She acts and dresses a little more mature than the other girls and isn’t afraid of showing some skin to get what she wants.  Her style is elegant and gorgeous!  She wears rich colors that complement her red hair.

Colette is the French Flight attendant.  Like the French, her style is chic and always well put together.  Her winged eye liner looks perfect all the time and she has fun with her clothes.  She can be sexy and mysterious or comfortable and cute.
