Trends come and go, but you can always count on Gwen Stacy's impeccable fashion sense. From her 1965 comic book debut to 2014's 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2', here's a look at Gwen through the years.
Gwen Stacy Debuts, 1965
Gwendolyn Stacy was introduced in The Amazing Spider-Man issue #31, published in December 1965. This early Gwen may have worn prim mid-'60s frocks, but her preference for the color red revealed a provocative side.

Swinging '60s Gwen
Miss Stacy was soon re-imagined as the grooviest of late-'60s teens, clad in the most happening threads and, soon, the black headband that would become synonymous with her look.

Moody '70s Gwen
The long coats and calf-length boots (not seen in this image) that Gwen wore in 1973 would influence Emma Stone's own take on Gwen Stacy style more than forty years later.

A Gwen Look-alike for the '80s
Gwen Stacy disappeared from the comic book scene for a long time, only popping up here and there. In 1988, a Gwen clone made a brief appearance, with her memorable 1973 wardrobe slightly updated for the era.

A 21st Century Re-imagining
One of countless superhero re-imaginings to emerge in the early 2000s, Spider-Man: Blue (published in 2002-2003) gave us this bombshell vision of Miss Stacy, swathed in furs and sporting a classic little black cocktail dress.

Spider-Man 3 (2007)
In the last of the Tobey Maguire/Sam Raimi Spider-Man movies, Bryce Dallas Howard traded in her distinctive red locks for a stunning platinum 'do, and her college-age Gwen favored sexy, refined outfits.
"The Spectacular Spider-Man" (2008-2009)
Bespectacled high schooler Gwen, voiced by Lacey Chabert in this animated TV series, had the "geek casual" thing going on: an orange hoodie and gray jeans were her go-to ensemble in most episodes.
The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)
The live-action reboot was all about the boots for Emma Stone. Her Gwen Stacy was surely voted Best Dressed at Midtown Science High, thanks to chic but comforable jackets and a no-nonsense ponytail adding just enough gravitas.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)
Gwen is now out of high school, and the 2014 sequel has Emma Stone letting her hair down – literally. With her wavy new tresses complementing her sophisticated wardrobe, this Gwen Stacy is ready to take on the world.
