Superhero Style Star
And the old red white and blue…”
~Wonder Woman theme song
In between flipping through all things Olympic on Flipboard, I skipped over to entertainment news and saw that Lynda Carter was born today. Happy Birthday, Wonder Woman!
She strutted onto the screen in red knee-high boots to play the first female television superhero and became a 1970s sensation. I remember watching Wonder Woman as a tween and loved her patriotic costume.
She could change from her alter ego, Diana Prince, and spin herself into a sassy superhero…
Then sprint, high-kick or high-jump herself out of harm’s way ~ all while maintaining her minx-like mane and ruby red lipgloss.
With multiple outfit changes per episode, it was like watching real-life Fashion Plates as Wonder Woman would spin herself into her superhero threads. The best part was guessing how she would fight her foes ~ would she snare them with her golden lasso? Toss her bejeweled boomerang crown and thwart the villains? Or try the combo high-kick & toss?
My personal favorite was her gold bullet-proof wrist cuffs…
Wonder Woman’s accessories would be stylishly in sync with today’s trends. She even knew how to rock the nautical look ~ just check out her slick seafaring swimsuit! She would be perfectly suited for the Summer Games.
Speaking of perfectly suited…
Hello, handsome… and Go Team U-S-A!
