The Ladies of The Dark Knight Rises fashion: Anne Hathaway for TODs
The women of Gotham City – the actresses of Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises – are beautiful, glamorous and sexy. They are a natural choice to be the face of top fashion brands, and Anne Hathaway, starring as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, has been the face of the summer and modeling the best-known designers in Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire, Interview Magazine, not to mention the red carpet premieres of her new movie One Day. The TODs signature collection simply could not have chosen a sexier lady to be their “IT GIRL” as these photos by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot make more than clear.
“We see a stunningly exquisite Anne as a classic beauty with a modern Italian edge — feminine and strong.”
It Girl, meet It Bag. Anne Hathaway works her magic in new ads for TOD’s Signature Collection, a soon-to-launch line of bags and small leather goods hitting TOD’s boutiques in October.
Shot in London by photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, the ads will also bow in October, appearing in fashion magazines worldwide. “The campaign for TOD’s Signature reaches out to a new and younger clientele,” creative director Fabien Baron said in a release, adding that Hathaway was the right woman for the job. “We see a stunningly exquisite Anne as a classic beauty with a modern Italian edge — feminine and strong.”
Hathaway, for her part, is honored to be associated with the brand. “I have been a longtime fan of TOD’s and was very excited to be a part of exploring a new side of their identity with the launch of their Signature Collection,” she added. “The designs are classic and the materials are of the highest quality.”
The handbags themselves — a shoulder bag, portfolio clutch, shopper, pochette and more — feature a pebble motif and come in colors like deep red, fuchsia, lavender and beige. Made in Italy, they’re crafted from a variety of materials, including soft patent leather, a metalized leather, shiny calfskin and semi-opaque nappa leather.
