Overheard on the Social Networks: Selina Kyle is “Very Hepburn”

Last week’s pictures from the Los Angeles location shooting of The Dark Knight Rises started the Internet buzzing with multiple shots of Christian Bale’s Bruce Wayne and Anne Hathaway’s Selina Kyle in their day clothes.  “Classy” “Elegant” and even “Patrician” with regards to Hathaway, terms that have been absent regarding Selina and Catwoman for far too long.


Selina Kyle in The Dark Knight Rises "Very Hepburn"

Overheard on the social networks about the Anne Hathaway photos:

Very Hepburn! The hat. The dress. The presence! So elegant.


When asked if they meant Audrey Hepburn checking out the jewels in Tiffany’s window at Breakfast at Tiffanys, which is certainly apt for Catwoman, the tweeter said no, Katherine Hepburn, the socialite heiress in The Philadelphia Story.  That’s apt too.  But we’re pretty sure Katherine Hepburn also played a socialite that had a pet leopard.  That might suit Catwoman better.
