Braniff Airways, 1965

One of the first airlines to adopt new styles, Braniff Airways hired noted fashion designer Emilio Pucci to create a new line of flight attendant uniforms. Pucci designed several outfits with bold, brash colors, including this uniform worn by Patricia Cunnington in the mid-1960s.
