Every season, the costume department of The CW’s Supergirl makes a few new tweaks to Supergirl’s costume. Star Melissa Benoist posted their latest design to her Instagram account today. Have a peek…notice anything different?

No, the “S” is still there…it’s just a dark photo. The difference is that Supergirl’s skirt is gone, replaced with trouser-tights. Why? According to Benoist this was her own request due to having to film most Supergirl episodes up north at Vancouver BC during the dead of winter. It’s tough to act out those heavy-handed Trump Administration allegories when you’re freezing your ankles off.

So the skirt had to go. But there’s one other change Benoist didn’t comment on: her missing forehead. We’re not certain if it’s an intended change for the show or if it’s just casual for the photoshoot, but Benoist has bangs here. What do you think of ’em?

Supergirl returns with new episodes this fall, Sundays at 9 on The CW.
