Lynda Carter

The fact that this happened makes me SO happy!  Bob Mackie designed the costumes for the Lynda Carter TV Special "Encore!" in 1980.  This was part of a musical medley that Lynda, most know as TV's Wonder Woman, performed describing her "Rock and Roll Fantasy."  She embodied the personas of Tina Turner, Bette Midler and KISS.  Believe you me... Gene Simmons never looked SO GOOD!

The video can be seen here

I really hope she has this costume hanging in her closet and occasionally breaks it out to reenact the number after a few martinis.
