The Pan Am Comeback Revisited

by swonderfulsmarvellous

Looking through the Google searches people have been using to find swonderful smarvellous, it’s become pretty clear that Pan Am is still a hot topic- and with the TV show starting up again in America this Sunday, I thought it would be a good idea to revisit the show that is still under threat of being cancelled.

A quick recap of what’s been going on in the skies- Dean and Colette are making gooey eyes at each other after he lets her fly a plane and she lets him in on her secret hatred of Germans. Kate is a spy, lamenting the loss of her foreign boyfriend who she betrayed, whilst her sister, Laura, who thought Ted was a complete idiot, has now fallen for him just as he leaves a room looking all rumpled with another woman. Girls always want what they can’t have! And Maggie is having it away with a man who holds opposing political views to her- which apparently, is a very big deal.

But now back to the more important things. The fashion of Pan Am is leather gloved, heavily lined eyes, red stained lips, 1960s glamour. The best lipstick out there, hands down has to be Chanel. The best liquid eyeliner I’ve used is from Topshop, and handily, it’s in the sale at the moment.

Watching Pan Am, it’s clear the stylists love themselves a good tea dress- so here are my favourites!
