San Diego Comic-Con 2016: Gal Gadot in Solace London at the “Wonder Woman” Panel

Posted on July 25, 2016

Gal Gadot attends “Celebrating 75 Years of Wonder Woman” at San Diego Comic-Con 2016 in San Diego, California.

 

While Miss Gal was definitely one of the PR winners of the Con, what with the eye-popping (and social media-exploding) release of the first Wonder Woman movie trailer (see below), we’re not entire sure she can be counted among the style winners:

But y’know? We think we’re coming around to liking it the longer we look at it. Those are definitely some crazypants, to be sure. But where better to sport your crazypants than the ground zero of all cosplay? We’re always telling the stars to be bold and colorful in their style choices for Comic Con – especially those that insist on getting dressed up for the event.

In fact, the more we realize that it’s not the pants that are causing the doubts and the judgment on our parts. It’s the top. First, the outfit didn’t need any black added to it. Second, the proportions are really awful. That neckline is way too wide and plunging for a pair of high-waisted pleated palazzo pants. Third, the contouring is way too obvious. A cute little white, crew-necked, cap-sleeved tee paired with a bigass bangle would’ve been a much better way to style those pants.

 

 

There are not enough SQUEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!s in the world. Yes, trailers can be deceiving, but that really does look pretty damn good.

Prediction, based on the lost-their-shit reaction that seemed universal among woman-focused pop culture press and social media (which comprise a huge portion of our daily online reading) when this trailer dropped: Wonder Woman’s going to have a huge cultural moment in the coming year – especially if Hillary Clinton wins the presidency. It seems to us that a whole shit-ton of female pop-culture and fashion consumers are PRIMED AF for a film like this to come along. Ghostbusters merely lit the fire.  And the ensuing backlash against that film may have actually created an audience even more committed to seeing women-led genre films succeed.
