A sharp new Wonder Woman-inspired look is sweeping the nation. The sword-in-dress trend has taken social media by storm and women everywhere are sharing their own version of the look inspired by one particular Wonder Woman scene.
In the film, Diana (Gal Gadot) attends a German gala and hides her trademark Godkiller sword in the back of her gown, saving it for the moment she can use it to defeat General Ludendorff (Danny Huston). Now, women want to know what it’s actually like to tote such a weapon in the back of their own gowns and outfits. Some have even expanded the trend to include lightsabers and hammers.
Using the hastag #WWGotYourBack, women have been posting photos of themselves sporting swords of all kinds in the back of their evening wear. As one bride-to-be says, “Wonder Woman showing us how to be a pretty princess and a force to be reckoned with.”

Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers… and her true destiny.
