Wonder Woman has long remained one of DC's icons, and will finally be getting her chance on the big screen in Patty Jenkins' upcoming solo film. Longtime fans have always had a fondness for the character, regardless of what costume she happens to be wearing, of which there have been more than a few.
From her classic red, yellow, and blue to the black and yellow attire of the 90's to her current amazon warrior inspired look, she's undergone a myriad of transformations over the years. While some (like the aforementioned "90's edge") aren't exactly considered winners, they still have their fans.
Hit the next slide to see which costumes made the list, and you can check out the official synopsis for the upcoming film below.
Wonder Woman hits movie theaters around the world next summer when Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action-adventure from director Patty Jenkins. Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.

Wonder Woman 77 Lynda Carter
To many, there isn't a more iconic Wonder Woman than Lynda Carter's, who brought the character to life on screen like no other before her. She was compassionate, powerful, and fierce, and commanded your attention as soon as she entered a room.
The costume was also a big part of the appeal, with the classic red, gold, and blue color scheme along with the trademark stars and tiara. Carter looked amazing in the costume and managed to inspire a legion of new Wonder Woman fans in the process.
Wonder Woman 600
When DC brought on John Michael Straczynski to write Wonder Woman, the creative shift paved the way for a new costume, courtesy of Jim Lee. At the time the costume change was met with mixed feelings, slanting more towards the negative, but with time that feeling has lessened.
The costume featured black pants, a red armored top, and gold accents in the gauntlet, belt, and tiara. It also featured a blue jacket with silver stars, replacing the typical blue shorts. It was aimed as a 21st-century redesign, and while the look was tinkered with while it lasted, it still looked fantastic on the page. Even without the jacket, it made her look more like a warrior, and as opposed to others, it seems to get better with time.
Wonder Woman New 52
When the New 52 sought to redesign DC's iconic characters, the focus was to make these characters more modern, prioritizing sleekness over most else. That extended to Wonder Woman's costume as well, with a look that brought back the blue shorts and red top.
Instead of gold, the suit used silver in its accents, which worked quite well with the deeper red on the top and the dark blue shorts. Instead of numerous white stars, the shorts now featured fewer of them but they were increased in size. The bracelets and tiara were also silver now, again going quite well with the red. In action sequences, this suit looks amazing and does accomplish its goal of bringing a sleek look to the old Wonder Woman template.
Wonder Woman Gal Gadot
This very well could have taken the top spot, but final judgment is being reserved for when Wonder Woman hits the big screen, as it should provide a much better look at the costume over the course of a whole film.
Still, even from what has been seen already, the suit is a perfect mix of tradition and modern sensibilities. The red, blue, and gold are all here, but the more muted tones allow the gold to truly stand out, while her shield and sword take on a more silverish tone. The lines on the suit show off how armored it is, and the blue skirt is a nice alternative to the typical shorts.
Come next year this could be number one but hit the next slide to see which costume managed to come out on top!
Wonder Woman Modern
This version of the costume has undergone various changes along Diana's journey, but it typically comes back to the same foundations. Red top, golden symbol, and blue and white shorts. The look is iconic for a reason, as despite it not being the most armored costume by any stretch no one dares question the hero wearing it.
When you see that big splash of gold hit the room, awe follows. The suit is unquestionably bright, an immediate beacon to both her enemies and those who need her help. When someone thinks of Wonder Woman, a few things might come to mind, but odds are that she will be wearing the red, blue, and gold.
