Anne Hathaway's The Dark Knight Rises press tour has begun. She swung by the Today show in NYC this morning to talk about the final installment of director Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy and shared what surprised her most about getting into her Catwoman character. Anne touched on her "good" year, which includes planning a wedding to her fiancé, Adam Shulman. Get the whole story in today's PopSugar Rush.
The costume: Catwoman
Batman's sexy nemesis/paramour has been a sexy costume staple since the 1960s (when the lovely Eartha Kitt played her on TV), and she shows no signs of fading away. Plus, as long as you have an all-black outfit, cat ears, and a mask, she's a really easy character to put together. Do it this year, before everyone copies Anne Hathaway's Catwoman from next year's The Dark Knight Rises.
Hair and makeup: Black kitty cat ears, of course, and a black mask, with plenty of red lipstick and black eye shadow. Also, sexy hair is a must, preferably curls or big retro volume.
What to wear: Black leggings, black gloves, black boots, and a tight black motorcycle jacket or long-sleeved top.
Take it to the next level: Add Catwoman's "claws" by gluing or pressing on some super-long acrylic tips. You can even paint them red for extra feline flair.
There's a lot to look forward to if you're a fan of female comic book heroes and villains: the upcoming The Dark Knight Rises, The Avengers, X-Men First Class, and Wonder Woman all feature prominent female leads! But, like most comic book fans, you probably have your own idea of who is best suited to play the role. I can already tell you that I am not thrilled with Anne Hathaway being cast as Catwoman. Do you think Hollywood got it right? Take a look at these upcoming female comic book leads and then vote on who makes the most sense.
As a tiny one, my little sister was fascinated by the comic book doings of one Selina Kyle, better known as Catwoman. If she ever starts nibbling her nails again, I think I may direct her to this DC Comics Catwoman Short Claw ($150). It may technically be jewelry, but it's really more the fanciest feline fingertip replacement out there and deserves to be recognized as such. Just think, for a mere $1,500, you could be menacing everyone around you with 10 digits worth of these, and you'd never have to worry about how your polish looked again. On the other hand, I guess it might be really, really difficult to do boring, normal things like use your keys, open jars, etc. Who really cares, though? You'll be too busy burgling and wearing knee-high boots to even notice.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art has chosen "Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy" as the theme of its Spring exhibit. The museum plans to explore the superhero's iconic costume of cape, mask, and bodysuit as it has appeared in fashion. The exhibit, which is co-chaired by Giorgio Armani, George Clooney, Julia Roberts, and Vogue editor Anna Wintour, will run from May 7 to September 1, and the accompanying gala, known as the Oscars of the fashion industry, will be hosted on May 5.
Approximately 70 ensembles will be featured, from high-performance sportswear and iconic movie costumes to avant-garde couture looks spanning the decades, all inspired by Catwoman, Wonder Woman, the X-Men, and more. Designers represented include everyone from Balenciaga, Armani, and Alexander McQueen to Jeremy Scott, Pierre Cardin, and Nike.
