When asked about Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman costume in the upcoming Batman V Superman, OG Amazon Lynda Carter revealed it didn’t take her to Paradise Island.
“Well, I was missing the red, white and blue, I have to say” Carter told Access Hollywood. “I haven’t [the film] it yet, so I really can’t comment. Maybe there’s a lot more color in it than what we saw in the picture.”
It’s true that the new getup is nowhere near as fun as Lynda’s patriotic bustier-and-panties combo, but the 1970s was a different time. Bright colors and big hair were in, in, in! So every week, Diana Prince spun in a circle of light and transformed into her iconic satin tights to fight for our rights—and the old red, white and blue.
Because it’s New York Fashion Week, and because I’ve always dreamed of changing outfits by simply spinning around, here are 40 of Lynda Carter’s best Wonder Woman twirls.
Season One was set during WWII, so Diana was most often seen in her WAC uniform, unless we took a special journey to her Amazon home, Paradise Island, where the Grecian look never went out of style
Diana did have a few chances to wear, and subsequently snatch, some wigs, though
Then for Season Two, the producers just said “fuck it” and decided to make Diana Prince into Diane Von Furstenberg.
Wrap dresses, peasant blouses, A-line skirts…
Kimono tops. Kimono tops.
Kim.Ono. Tops. Little known fact, Wonder Woman’s secret super power is glamour
And here she is Studio 54 dancing to “Love Hangover.”
But Diana Prince was no party girl, she was all business,—although occasionally business casual.
Diana was not only an early proponent of Say-Something Hat Day
