    The white belt makes it look like the colorist was incomplete, but I don’t mind the shorter hair simply because how often do we see Diana with shorter hair?

    But the thread is about her physique not fashion. Bob Oksner is one of my favourite artists and noted for drawing the female form. I love the beauty of his ink lines--a very clean style. Even though he had rare opportuniity to draw Diana, Bob drew many different versions of her in the 1940s, 1960s and 1970s. Here's his cover for SUPERMAN'S GIRL FRIEND, LOIS LANE 136, from around the same time as WW 212, where the fashion is a bit different and she has a yellow belt.



    But the white belt was common at the time--and it goes back to the original design for Diana by H.G. Peter. I can see why Peter gave her a white belt because the belt is supposed to be separate and not part of the golden eagle element, so the different colour makes that clear. The belt wasn't established as yellow until 1975. I didn't like how most artists drew the eagle in the 1970s, but I like how Oksner drew it on the 212 cover to make clear those are bird's wings and not some weird breast covering.

    oh, pardon moi, for mentioning costume/hair!

    I know the white belt was original, and separate from other parts of the costume, but not the way it was drawn on that cover with up and down points. Originally it only had an upper point. The white belt was also for E-2 version, while the E-1 WW has always had yellow (unless miscolored).
