Maybe if the sleeves of the jacket weren't so short so she doesn't look from the 80s. She does look a little young for the most high profile female super-hero. She should be classically beautiful not Maxim hot! Her beauty should be proud, strong and compassionate. In a weird way, she should be the most motherly of the JLA!

She should? Why? Please elaborate.
I don't see how being "most motherly" squares with being a warrior princess.
I'll agree that she does look a little young, but I think it's appropriate given her origin -- a young, and yes, kind of sheltered girl exploring a bigger world and a culture very different from her own. George Pérez made that clear in his revamp of the character; his Wonder Woman seemed to be only in her early 20s. In a way, Wonder Woman is similar to Captain America who, when you think about his origin, should also be only in his 20s or at most his mid-30s (considering he volunteered while in his late teens-early 20s circa 1940 and went through five years of World War II before getting flash frozen and thawed out "ten years ago").
Wonder Woman is also similar to Captain America in that they're both towering paragons of physical perfection and excellence who generate great respect, loyalty and reverence, but who command in a way that inspires others to do their best -- as we saw in "Valedictorian" in Wonder Woman #600, on sale now. (I liked it, a lot better than I did Batman #700 or Superman #600.) And as we saw in "Fuzzy Logic," she can dispense the Wisdom of Athena in a manner that is as gentle as that of an old friend.
As Captain Comics once said, Captain America is best presented not as some humorless martinet, but as your big brother, always willing to show you the ropes and guide you to do your best. Likewise, I see Wonder Woman, at heart, as your big sister.
Plus, is THIS Wonder Woman the same as George Perez's? Is her backstory the same? Is she or is not a founding member of the JLA? Is her mother still a JSA member? Was she a super-hero before Wonder Girl? Too many reboots and alterations make my head hurt! Ow!
