“The Most Beautiful Woman In The World” was awarded to Lynda Carter in 1978, by The International Academy of Beauty and The British Press Organization. America’s beloved Wonder Woman is an Arizona Native, and she will be back here April 16, 2011 as the Celebrity Grand Marshal of the 15th Annual Phoenix Pride. She also has a new CD titled “At Last”.
Linda Carter was born in Phoenix, Arizona on July 24, 1951. ( FYI – That makes her a Leo) She went to Globe High School and Arcadia High School in Phoenix, she also attended Arizona State University. While she was attending ASU, she was a member of Alpha Xi Delta and was voted ” most talented”. Lynda Carter played the role of Wonder Woman, an Amazon woman of eternal youth, and she seems to truly have been blessed with eternal youth and beauty.
Lynda Carter was Miss Phoenix 1972 and represented Arizona in the Miss World-USA contest. Carter won the title of Miss USA, and went on to the semi-finals of Miss World 1972-1973.
I bet you didn’t know she cold sing!

“Of all people, you know who I am…who the world needs me to be. I’m Wonder Woman.”
As a true Wonder Woman fan, I am excited to learn that the production of a new Wonder Woman Television series is in the works. The newest Wonder Woman television series will be writen and produced by David E. Kelley. Warner Bros is expected to launch the show on NBC. The role of Diana Prince aka Wonder Woman is rumored to be played by Adrianne Palik. I hope they will maintain the same Wonder Woman that nostalgic fans are familiar with. I hope to see a similar costume and her signature powers, Lasso of Truth, indestructible bracelets, her tiara and her invisible airplane.
“In your satin tights / Fighting for your rights / And the old Red, White, and Blue!… / Wonder Woman!”
The original TV series took place during World War II, and Wonder Woman’s altar ego, Diana Prince was a Navy enlisted First Class Petty Officer. Wonder Woman is actually Princess Diana from the hidden Paradise Island that is the home to a tribe of eternally young Amazon women. The women of Paradise Island are based on the Amazons of Greek mythology. When an American Soldier, Major Steve Trevor is shot down by a Nazi plane, he lands on the mythical Island and Princess Diana decides she must follow the Major back to the United States and help fight the Nazi’s. Wonder Woman has super human strength, bulletproof bracelets, and the golden lasso of truth.
Diana Prince changes into her Wonder Woman Costume by spinning at lightning speed. As a kid this was probably my favorite part of the show. I can’t tell you how many times I would wrap myself in a sheet or some type of make shift cape and spin in a circle, throwing the sheet off, revealing my Wonder Woman Underoo’s. During my transformation, I would yell ” Wonder Woman!”
I grew up watching shows like Wonder Woman, The Bionic Woman and Charlie’s Angels. I think that these types of show’s let girls know that you could be smart, strong, powerful and beautiful all at the same time. As a little girl, these shows inspired me to be more than a princess and certainly didn’t create any desire to be a damsel in distress. I didn’t need someone to be my hero, in my mind I was the hero and I should even protect others. Wonder Woman represented strength, virtue, and although she avoided violence she could kick some butt and look hot doing it. I look forward to the return of Wonder Woman and I hope that she will inspire todays girls to be more than a princess. Even if Diana was a princess, she was so much more, she was Wonder Woman.

When my BFF, sent me a photo from her phone of the M.A.C. counter decked out and covered with Wonder Woman products, I was totally elated. Anyone that knows me, should know I am a huge Wonder Woman fan! Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to make it to the M.A.C. cosmetic counter for a couple weeks, and when I finely went to the M.A.C. counter at Paradise Valley Mall, I was disappointed to learn that they had sold out of almost the entire collection. Apparently, this limited edition collection was very popular. The packaging is nostalgic of the Wonder Woman from the comic book series and the cosmetic M. A. C. has even put together a series of Wonder Woman looks: Classic Wonder Woman, Defiance, Golden Lariat, Deep Truth, Mighty Aphrodite and Marine Ultra.
I was so excited and surprised, when my Aunt showed up at my house with the Wonder Woman makeup case and the cosmetic products that they still had left in the collection. I have also been getting text and Facebook messages from my friends about any of the Wonder Woman products they find. If you are looking for the Wonder Woman cosmetic collection, rumor has it that the
M. A. C. counter at the Arizona Biltmore still has some products available. I would like to send out a huge thank you to all my friends and family that have supported my Wonder Woman addiction.

You may have noticed all of the profile photo’s on facebook are changeing to images of cartoon characters, this trend is part of an awareness campaign against child abuse.
“Change your facebook profile picture to a cartoon character from your childhood and invite your friends to do the same. Until Monday, Dec 6th of 2010, there should be no human faces on facebook, but an invasion of memories! This is for a campaign against violence on children.”
I am sharing some of my favorite cartoon characters.

Bridget Marquardt and Kendra Wilkinson: Our favorite girls next store, at the Playboy mansion for the annual Halloween party.
Christina Auguilera: This sexy nurse is sure to have all the boy’s calling in sick.
Paris Hilton: I am not sure what she is in the first photo, but I like the matching contact lenses. The bunny costume is sexy but, a little unimpressive.
Heidi Montag: Officer Friendly
Kim Kardashian: Anyone that knows me probably knows that, I LOVE Wonder Woman. I love Kim’s Wonder Woman costume, with the exception of the black tights. It would have looked so much better with nude tights. I have to add, her hair is perfect. If it weren’t for the black tights this would be my favorite.
Coco and Rihanna: Rihanna is a sexy tiger, and I couldn’t tell you what Coco is supposed to be.
Lauren Conrad: Classic Sexy and tasteful as a flapper.
