A pre-Wonder Woman Lynda Carter, circa 1971-72.
In the comic books, Wonder Woman's alter ego is Diana Prince -- but to Americans who watched TV in the '70s, Wonder Woman (and, technically speaking, Diana Prince) will always be Lynda Carter. When this picture was taken, Carter was about 20 years old, soon to be a pageant winner. She was Miss World USA 1972 and a semifinalist in the 1972 Miss World pageant (held in London), after which she began to study acting and landed small roles on TV series and in B-movies. In 1975, Carter landed the role of Wonder Woman, whom she portrayed on TV through 1979. Current WW actress Gal Gadot is good -- she's very good -- but she'll never dethrone Lynda Carter as the all-time iconic Wonder Woman.
