Steal the style: Anne Hathaway in The Dark Knight Rises

Me-ow! Anne Hathaway takes the big screen by storm this weekend as Selina Kyle – otherwise known as Catwoman – in the final installment of Christopher Nolan’s take on Batman, The Dark Knight Rises.

Kyle is known for her sleek black catsuit – and she wears it plenty in the film. The look was controversial with old school Batman fans – they thought it was too simple for the character. However, Hathaway said it serves its purpose.

“I love the costume. I love the costume because everything has a purpose, nothing is in place for fantasy’s sake, and that’s the case with everything in Christopher Nolan’s Gotham City,” she told earlier this year.

However, it wasn’t exactly easy to fit into it.

“The Catwoman suit. It was a psychological terrorist… the suit, thoughts of my suit, changing my life so I would fit into that suit… it dominated my year,” she said. “I went into the gym for 10 months and didn’t come out.”

We love, love, love Hathaway’s style in the film – the streamlined-and-monochrome look just looks dramatic. Better yet? It’ll work as temperatures dip into fall and winter.

Get Selina Kyle’s The Dark Knight Rises look

To get Hathaway’s The Dark Knight Rises style, think leather – or at least clothing that looks like leather. We’re loving this one-shouldered dress available at T.J. Maxx. The designer dress is a steal for $200 – it’s originally priced at $400.

For a daytime look, try these black denim leggings from Mango ($50) paired with a sleek black T-shirt, black leather booties from ALDO ($75) and a leather jacket from Soul Revolver ($395).

Oh, and that amazing black lace mask Kyle wears while dancing with Bruce Wayne? We don’t recommend wearing a mask to work (lest might find yourself in the human resources office), but we found this black lace headband on Etsy ($12) that is just enough drama for even the most benign of office wear.

As for makeup? Kyle keeps it simple in The Dark Knight Rises with a pale face and dramatically red lips. Our favorite lipstick to do the deed is Lancome’s Rouge in Love Lipcolor in Rouge Valentine. Purr.
