Family and friends of The United Nations cheered on the designation of Wonder Woman as its Honorary Ambassador for the Empowerment of Women and Girls in a ceremony on Friday, October 21, a date that also commemorates the iconic Super Hero’s official 75th anniversary. On hand to mark the historic occasion were DC Entertainment President Diane Nelson; Lynda Carter, star of the 1970s television series; Gal Gadot, star of the forthcoming “Wonder Woman” feature film; United Nations Under Secretary General Cristina Gallach; and Patty Jenkins, the director of “Wonder Woman” feature film.

Would you like champagne?’ I said, ‘God, I want a tequila.’ Cara, who I’d never met before, was about five metres away from me and her ears just pricked up and she said, 'Did someone say tequila?’ I was like, ’You and I are so going to be best friends’.
