Lynda Carter, who famously played Wonder Woman in the 1970s TV show, looked stunning thirty years later at the Kennedy Centre Honours in Washington DC


Since becoming a household name thanks to that tiny red, gold and blue outfit, Carter has worked regularly in small television and film roles.


Her youthful appearance made her the centre of attention among a roomful of stars including Julia Roberts, Oprah Winfrey and President Barack Obama.


Seventies sex symbol Lynda Carter, who starred on the TV series Wonder Woman, turned heads on the red carpet at the Kennedy Center Honors in Washington D.C., Dec. 5, 2010.


Flaunting her sexy, fit physique in a dramatic black gown that showed off her elegant neckline, Carter, 59, joined President and Mrs. Obama and other celebs in recognizing this year's honorees, including Oprah Winfrey and Paul McCartney.

Lynda, whom producer David E. Kelley (Ally McBeal, The Practice) recently consulted about a new Wonder Woman TV series (Carter played her from 1975-79), has said the secret to her ageless beauty is consistent exercise and portion control.


Carter exercises every day, usually walking, stressing that the key to fitness is to work out rigorously (even if it's only for 20 minutes). Lynda, the mother of two, also enjoys hiking, tennis, yoga and light weight-lifting.

Lynda, who's almost as slender as she was when she poured herself into the sexy Wonder Woman costume over 30 years ago, says portion control is the key to staying skinny.

"I eat whatever I want, I just cut down on the portion size," she has said.

“It’s all about portion control, portion control, portion control. I have a better relationship with food now, but I struggle with my weight. I’ve been up 20 pounds and down.

But I don’t think you should deprive yourself. If you want to have a brownie, have one—just don’t have one every day.”

Carter, who battled alcoholism during her 40s and early 50s, and checked into rehab several times for treatment, has embraced a healthier, calmer lifestyle these days.
