She’s Wonder Woman in the movie and she was glamorous at the red carpet, wearing a daring and edgy dress. The 30-year-old Israeli actress Gal Gadot was one of many stars at the premiere held at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall, and she was quite the standout.

Not for revealing skin or flirting with a wardrobe malfunction, but for total understated elegance. While some might have wanted to see her in a floor-length gown, she instead, opted for a stunning dress that highlighted her marvelously toned physique which, in the movie of course, she has put to full fighting advantage.

Fashionistas have identified the dress as a Balmain. It’s laden with beaded embroidery that’s reminiscent of the Baroque era; a stunning juxtaposition of old-world craftsmanship and a contemporary style, complete with a halter-neck styling and shoulder cutouts.

Regardless of what she wore, Gal Gadot would be the proverbial center of attention even though the title stars, Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill were there at the premiere, along with many costars including Amy Adams and Diane Lane. Let’s face it, we’ve seen Batman and we’ve seen Superman on the big screen, but not Wonder Woman. This is a first.

Yes, all eyes on Wonder Woman. In a recent press conference for the movie according to People, Gal Gadot said of her portrayal of the iconic DC heroine, “It’s a huge honor for me to be the one to get this amazing opportunity to tell such an important story. I feel very grateful.”

She added, “I never planned on being an actress or Wonder Woman but everything just happened and I am grateful and happy and in love with what I do. I am enjoying everything but it will take me sometime until I really understand what is going on.”

She also revealed how she has chosen to deal with the backlash over her casting and the controversy, saying, “For me being an actress, my responsibility is not to pay attention to all the noise around me and to pay attention to the script and the director and protect the character and try to tell her story the best I can.”
