Here is the second style of wings.  
Notice the center shield is different
between the two wings and the picture
we have is to blurred to make out which
one she is wearing.

Answer
The air crew wing pin in the photo above is the Proper one she is wearing, they had "slight" variations of them as there were several companies that made them in the US and overseas ,so they are not all exactly alike , but the round background with the US Eagle symbol is the main part of this pin on the round inner ring like shown in your photo .

Of note , even the pilot,bombardier,aerial gunner wings had slight variations depending on where it was made/bought etc .

And if she was already a part of an air crew before June 1945 she would have been wearing the air crew pin .
