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.”

Directed by Patty Jenkins, Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, Lucy Davis, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Elena Anaya, Lisa Loven Kongsli, Ewen Bremner, Saïd Taghmaoui and Eugene Brave Rock. Here is the official synopsis for the film:
Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. 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.
