She trained for months to get into super-toned shape for Catwoman's eye-wateringly tight costume.
But when it came to the London premire of The Dark Knight Rises, Anne Hathaway went for a very different look.
Sporting her elfin crop, which she had cut short for Les Miserables, the 29-year-old actress wore a loose-fitting, glittering gold Gucci creation.

Also bringing the glamour were some of the film's leading men's real-life leading ladies.
Christian Bale's wife Sandra 'Sibi' wore a black asymmetrical floor-length gown, while Tom Hardy's actress fiance Charlotte Riley wore a floral skirt and black strapless top.
Hardy plays the leading villain in the third and last instalment of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy while Bale has reprised his role as Batman.

The film sees Hardy have to wear a reported 'life-giving mask,' which the actor says made filming difficult.
He said: 'When
it’s on, it’s hard to breathe. I can’t hear anyone, and no
one can see me speak. So there you go. And the magic begins.'
having flown in from New York just hours earlier following the film's
world premiere the night before, everyone looked surprisingly
French actress Marion Cotillard, who played Bruce Wayne's love interest Miranda Tate, showed off her tiny waist in an orange and dog-tooth Christian Dior creation.

Hopefully, the evening will go a lot smoother than Bale's last Batman premiere in London.
The actor was arrested following
allegations of assault after a stormy argument with his mother Sandra
and sister Jenny at a London hotel shortly before the premiere of The
Dark Knight in 2008, however the charges were later dropped.
Bale hasn't spoken to the two women since the incident.
