Yea Wonder Woman and Batman. And you know my feelings on Superman, but to be honest that's my favorite. It's TOO perfect! LOVE IT

I am a bit far for this event (Italy) ... but forwarding the event to my brother who lives in Santa Monica!

These are awesome, Vivian. So glad I made the show.

I love them all, but I really love the Practice Makes Perfect, because I was/am a huge Wonder Woman fan as a child. I used to jump off the coffee table at my uncle's house (because my father would've killed me if I did that at home lol) and pretending I was jumping and spinning just like Wonder Woman. I think all women want to feel as powerful and wonderful as that character.
