Im asking for your opinions!!! What is your favorite Airline uniform of any era. If you can please provide a photo if you like... My favorite (surprise,surprise) is the BN Pucci Gemini Collection Air Strip 1965 with those wierd little astronaut domes.

Well I have to say that my favourite is the one that I wear. SkyService / RootsAir Designed Uniforms. The cranberry coloured women's skirts / jumpers above the knee, also the the pants the women wear are very fitting shows all the curves. On the men. plain but very smart looking charcoal uniforms. Second Fav. Aeroflot. Very very professional looking. Also Asiana very militant style. Very sharp and clean looking. Air Canada's uniform when it first came out looked very nice. a little aged now needs a redesign.
Now Canada 3000. the womens uniform looks nice except the shirt. The mens Jacket looks horrible. Royals purple!?!?! What were they thinking. Canjet's uniforms was horrible Wesjet is to Blah!! and to top it all off is British Airways!1 what were the people on who designed that nasty one!!

The elegant sarong-clad kebaya, designed by French designer Pierre Balmain. Over the years, it has been internationally recognised with the gracious Singapore Girl. In addition, the Singapore Girl with Kebaya, is on display in Madame Tussauds to symbolise the growth of international air travel.
"Singapore Airlines' legendary customer services standards are symbolised by the gracious "Singapore Girl". In her distinctive unifrom, a sarong kebaya in batik material, she personifies SIA's tradition of friendly service and Asian hospitality."
Does anyone have a picture of a Singapore Girl in full with kebaya, head and sandals? i've tried to find one in vain!
