Lynda Carter, the heroine in a crown. Sound familiar? The modern-day superhero arrived at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday trading her "Wonder Woman" headpiece for a Hebrew crown. Models, musicians, and movie-stars alike attend the invitation-only event. With poise and purpose, Carter demonstrated why she’s still on top of the A-list. The ability to remain an ageless symbol of feminine power wasn’t her only message, etched on her crown was “l’olam al tishkachi” meaning “never forget.”

If you look up the definition of a superhero you'll find descriptive words like exceptional strength and unparalleled power. Looking beyond the idea behind the Catholic theme last Monday, Carter saw an opportunity to use her celebrity powers to leave us with a moral to the story.

Sounds like a synopsis even Diana Prince would approve of.

The world needs 'Wonder Woman' right now

"Wonder Woman" is the epitome of power, equality, and empathy in one influential high-kick. Carter's version of "Wonder Woman" brought forth the idea of an independent woman who could embrace both strength and vulnerability. 43 years later we still see her fighting relevant causes. She may no longer brandish the Lasso of Truth but her inclination to fight the good fight is still just as exhilarating. In an industry where aging women often become invisible, riding off into the sunset is a role Carter chooses not to play. Her voice has become her new weapon of choice, proving she is as visible and affluential as ever.

While most Celebrities attend events like the Met Gala to be seen, Carter uses her appearances to be heard. Even without a podium, her message is clear. Never forget. Her ambition to continue fighting for the good guys, even at 66-years-young, proves that Carter remains the real Wonder Woman.

Carter's Wonder Woman is the hero in all of us

The invitation-only Met Gala is the top source of income for the New York City-based Metropolitan Museum of Art, with a highly anticipated theme chosen each year to celebrate the opening of their latest exhibition. This year’s theme, rumored to be the most provocative yet, was “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination”.

According to tickets to the event, which dates back to 1948, are reported to be $30,000 each and $275,000 per table.
