Soar to new style heights with superhero fashion from Darna.
Super Girls Soar to new style heights with superhero fashion from Darna.

Most little girls dream of becoming a precious princess when they grow up, complete with a pink dress, shiny tiara, and a dashing prince to save them from distress. But we at Style Bible know that many girls also dream of being a woman who can save the day all by herself, eschewing all the tulle and glitter for a little bit of red leather and some gold armor. Every Filipina grew up with this strong, fearless, and not to mention stylish heroine, so it's time to celebrate her return with the famous incantation: "Darna!"

The modern-day Filipina superhero returns to primetime television tonight with Marian Rivera in the lead role, along with a sultry new costume designed by Bong Leal and created by Pepsi Herrera. Darna's all set to fly in her trademark two-piece set embellished with gold stars and a wing-motif helmet, but she's also got a brand-new cast of super villains to inject some dark superhero style into the show.

Bitter enemies like the snake woman Valentina, the silver-winged Babaeng Lawin, the shapeshifter Babaeng Linta, and leather-clad Liberty all promise to make the show a must-watch for fantasy lovers, but we think fashion enthusiasts can also take some inspiration from all the shiny leather and metal adorning the cast. It can be a lot of fun to dress up in flashy heroine - or villain - garb, so we're bringing you the superhero-inspired pieces that can save any boring wardrobe. But remember: it's not Halloween, so practice some restraint when it comes to piling them on!

As you anticipate the first episode of the new series on GMA tonight, click here to jump to the gallery of notable Darna adaptations - and costumes - through the years.
