Rebecca Garza was the first Braniff Hostess. The uniform was of modified Mexican style and consisted of a bolero-type jacket and skirt of silver gray wool worsted, a high-necked white silk jersey blouse, a vivid red sash, a softly-draped red wool crepe turban. Skirt was midi and modest. Uniform was designed by Neiman-Marcus.
