A modern gal, that Wonder Woman. Always ahead of her time.
Long before Lady Gaga was running around in leotards as if they constituted an entire outfit, Wonder Woman was keeping the peace in a strapless star-spangled bathing suit with red go-go boots and regal-looking headband.
Completing the look were those awesome bullet-reflecting bracelets and the golden lasso of truth. Just try keeping your evil secrets when Wonder Woman has you wrapped up in that thing!
(Can you tell Buzz is a child of the ’70s? Wonder Twin powers! Activate! OK, sorry for the digression.)
Anyway, Wonder Woman’s new outfit, just unveiled by DC Comics, takes a big step back sartorially, in our humble opinion. She’s tricked out in this get-up that a Prince
back-up singer might have worn in 1988 – black leggings and a bustier topped by this cropped bolero jacket.
Trumpeting the new look, DC Comics said “bestselling artist and DC Comics Co-Publisher Jim Lee has redesigned her costume for the modern era.”
Modern? We aren’t really feeling it. What do you think?
