Selina Kyle is one of the few female comic book characters to start as an antihero and not comprise her beliefs for the male superhero (in this case, Batman/Bruce Wayne). In both The Dark Knight Rises and the comic books, Kyle lures and manipulates Wayne, but he doesn’t fight her intentions nor does she fight his advances. Within her most recent adaptation as Catwoman (played by Anne Hathaway), Kyle wears a lot of basic black dresses and trousers, but she creates interest in her style through her accessories (especially those incredibly high heels she fights in as Catwoman). Whether in a gorgeous LBD or a neon orange prison jumpsuit, Kyle knows how to accessorize (I appreciated the chain belt when she was in the prison). If you want to emulate Kyle’s style, then purchase well tailored, basic pieces (mostly in the color black) with stylish jewelry, purses/clutches, and shoes. The most important thing to remember when it comes to clothing with Catwoman’s style is the cut– it needs to fit your body’s shape and height in order to be effective and look nice. As to the accessories, those are up to you and should highlight your personality.
What do you think of the most recent interpretation of Selina Kyle/Catwoman? What do you think of Hathaway’s performance in The Dark Knight Rises? What do you think of her style and the film in general?
