The story behind Diana Prince’s stunning gala gown from ‘Wonder Woman 1984’

The film’s costume designer explained the famous dress in an interview.

‘Wonder Woman 1984’ was released to theaters and HBO Max on Christmas Day and although there are different thoughts and opinions on the movie, there’s one thing we can all agree on - the fashion in the movie is iconic.

Gal Gadot’s Diana Prince character was seen in a number of different looks throughout the film, one of them being a show-stopping ivory dress. In the film, the ivory silk number is worn when Prince reunited with her love interest, Steve Trevor, according to PopSugar. Lindy Hemming is the film’s costume designer and she explained the head-turning dress more in detail in an interview for

Diana Prince’s gala gown was a head-turner.

“We explored so many evening dresses – none of the metallic ones of the period seemed to be right for [Gal Gadot‘s] character. They seemed to be too on the nose. I referenced Chanel, Calvin Klein, and Claude Montana to create that kind of classic American look,” Hemming said in the interview.

“I created that costume as a shirt and wrap-around skirt with a really clever cutter, Ian Frazer Wallace, in a really heavy double silk crepe. We wanted something so that her legs could come through. She has the most fantastic legs anyway, and I knew that she would walk along that Long Pond in Washington [the National Mall].”

“It seemed like white would make you stand apart from everybody else. She would look like a goddess, and she is a goddess in a way. We called it the 1980s goddess look. Cuff from Tiffany,“ the costume designer explained.

Just when we thought we couldn’t love this dress, even more, we find out the secret behind it that it’s a top and skirt. The dress exudes elegance and Gadot carried it beautifully.

In addition to the dress, the confident Prince is seen wearing a variety of classic ‘80s outfits such as trousers and retro suits.
