Coachella inspires Lynda Carter to 'reconsider' old closet faves, tweets throwback photo
Lynda Carter shared a photo of herself from the 1970s after seeing this year's Coachella fashion. The actress can be seen sitting in a pink-and-white wingback chair while donning a multi-colored floral print vest, a pair of wide-legged blue denim jeans, and beige leather boots in the picture shared on Twitter.
"All your Coachella looks are making me reconsider everything at the forgotten end of my closet [laughing face emoji]," Carter tweeted. Known for playing Wonder Woman from 1975 until 1979, the star posted a screenshot of her tweet with the caption, "I guess we're dusting off those bell-bottom jeans. [thinking face emoji] #coachella."

That wasn't all, as the official Wonder Woman account quoted her tweet and asked, "Everything?? [eyes emoji]." Carter then replied, "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. [wink face emoji]." Along with the tweet, she posted an image of her holding her Wonder Woman costume and gear, kept safely inside a glass box.
The singer and beauty pageant titleholder starred in the live-action television series titled 'Wonder Woman' and played Diana Prince and Wonder Woman. The role was based on the popular DC comic book fictional superhero character of the same name. The series lasted three seasons and aired on ABC and later on CBS from 1975 to 1979.

Her tweet comes a little more than a year after her husband of 37 years, businessman Robert Altman, died in Baltimore due to complications caused by a medical procedure in February 2021. She talked about his death in a post that said, "One week ago, my beloved husband Robert Altman passed away. Robert is the love of my life and he always will be. Our 37 years of marriage were an extraordinary gift. We shared the passion I hope everyone is lucky enough to experience in their lifetime. We protected each other and were each other’s champions always. We have always been grateful for the two beautiful lives we created together: our children, Jessica and James. They are the lights of my life and were the greatest joy of Robert's. I see so much of Robert in them, and I know he lives on through them."
"To all the fans who have shared their condolences: Jessica, James, and I want to say thank you. We especially love hearing about the times you met Robert at concerts or through his work in the gaming world. He loved meeting you and hearing your stories. To Robert: You are the most honorable person that I have ever had the privilege to know. And I got to be your wife and the mother of your children. Thank you for giving me all the love in my life. Nothing could prepare our family for this moment, but we will do our best to follow our dreams and honor the legacy you've left behind. I will love you always and forever," Carter's Instagram post concluded.
