It's not that mysterious. WW was sent to "Man's World" as an ambassador. To reflect this they dressed her in the colors of that world's most powerful nation.
Isn't that pretty much the opposite of what an ambassador is supposed to do?
They're Amazon warriors. All they know is killin' and armored bustiers. Diplomacy's not their strong suit.
Bullshit. That was never the Amazons of Marston, or the rebooted world made by Perez. The current Amazons fit that, perhaps, but that is because the powers that be have decided to follow in a more Xena-like version of the Amazons which imagines them as the Greeks did, militant, man-hating and war happy. In short, a misogynistic vision of a world of women who are not docile and submissive.
