Anne Hathaway as Selena Kyle Styled By Designer Thierry Mugler
Recently I wrote a rather scathing piece on Hathaway/Catwoman and the Dark Knights choices for her horrible jumpsuit.
There may be a lighter side to the costuming in the Dark Knight.
I STILL have no love for Hathaway as Catwoman, or her costume with the mini ears. I loathe her lack of sex appeal and appreciate he was doing her best. I did however read an interview with the costume designer.
Turns out when lovely Anne was working the crazy as Selena Kyle her wardrobe was, thankfully, styled by a fashion mogul and mastermind. Thierry Mugler.
In case you are unfamiliar with Mugler, he ruled couture in the late 90’s and early 2000’s. He did all the costuming for George Michael’s ‘Too Funky’ video, has worked with the top supermodels in the world, was in the movie Pret-A-Porter and made pieces of costuming/fashion like this.
And then he stopped making fashion.
Now his Jewelry and Perfume collection are the only things to be found. However every once in a while a semi-retired genius will come out of his shell to create. ‘Dark Knight’ snagged Mugler who styled Anne as Selena Kyle’s outfits. HIS style came out looking like this;
I am pleased to see that Thierry has not lost his touch in creating magnificence. Sexy, scintillating, cat-like and very not Anne Hathaway this is magnificent. I only hope someone see’s this and sticks it in a high fashion magazine (Vogue Italia I’m talking to you).
Bravo! Ce Magnifique Monsieur Mugler. You just saved my opinion of the Dark Knight and Anne Hathaway as a model.
