The original Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter, has left fans stunned with a jaw-dropping throwback photo of herself proving she once held the top position in the fashion stakes.
The ’70s bombshell actress who played Wonder Woman on the small screen from the years 1975 to 1979 tweeted that she has “dusting off those bell-bottom jeans” after seeing the multitude of festival looks on display during the first weekend of the music and arts festival, Coachella.

The 70-year-old took to Twitter on Monday, April 18, to share a photo of her younger self sitting on a vinyl pink and yellow wingback chair, sitting cross-legged, wearing light blue washed bell-bottom jeans.
She donned a multi-coloured, floral printed halter top with a single button popped open and has famous raven black locks parted to the side and worn in fluffy soft curls carefully framing her pretty round face and over her shoulders as she stares into the camera with a sultry look.
To finish her boho-chic ensemble, Carter wears brown worn leather boots and smokey-eyed make-up.
“All your Coachella looks are making me reconsider everything at the forgotten end of my closet,” the actress wrote on Twitter, adding a crying laughing emoji to her throwback photo post.
That wasn’t the only throwback photo the television veteran showed off on her social media. Carter showcased the iconic and original Wonder Woman costume, which she encased in a glass frame, joking that she would only break the glass of the memorabilia collectible if it was needed.
1. Some outfits are never sent to the back of the closet.
2. It’s really more of a “break glass in case of emergency” situation. ???? https://t.co/VFKKvHR8df pic.twitter.com/2KQlCEWlKq
