Here’s what costume designer Colleen Atwood had to say:

“In designing Supergirl, I wanted to embrace the past, but more importantly, thrust her into the street-style action hero of today.”

I absolutely love this costume. It’s got a very practical look and the darker colors pay homage to the costume in Man of Steel worn by Supergirl’s cousin. And those boots…holy hell! Love em! Melissa looks fabulous, and I can’t wait to see her in the role!

Filming on the Supergirl pilot is currently underway.
