Although the official Wonder Woman Day took place June 3, Oprah is excited to host her own version of the event. She’s having a Wonder Woman cake from Charm City Cakes, appropriately themed popcorn buckets, and cuffs and flip flops for her guests to wear. Never one to be outdone, Oprah even got a Wonder Woman headband for her dog Sadie, who was a little less than thrilled about her new headgear.

Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers… and her true destiny.
