So I recently wrote about High Fashion's Crush on Catwoman, and the trend continues with a new line of high end designer shoes from French fashion designer Andre. He's also designed a line of shoes based around Wonder Woman's iconic costume, which are included in this post because some of these need to be seen to be believed. They're only available in Europe, and you can't actually buy them online (I smell secondary market price hikes on the way soon) but if you're in Europe, well, have fun buying up all the designer shoes!



Lots more goodies behind the cut. )

Okay, look, I'm going to go on record right now and say: Ew. Ballet flats. Other than the ridiculously impractical and pointless kitten heel, there isn't a shoe I loathe with deeper passion. I won't go into details, because that'd be exceedingly boring, but God, I hate ballet flats so, so much.

Also, I'm not sure why Wonder Woman's costume has been translated into what appear to be nineteen forties orthopedic bowling shoes. I mean, I can kinda follow the pattern of logic, given Diana Prince being an army nurse during WWII originally but still, in a modern fashion context...what? Is anyone actually going to buy those?

Anyway. In case you weren't aware already, this isn't the first time that DC has teamed up with a super high scale designer to help celebrate their characters. As I recall, they teamed with a bunch of French designers about a year ago and brought such gems as this pair of thigh high Catwoman inspired boots to the scene:



Additionally, there's the nOir DC Comics jewelry line, which I was working on a post about sometime last month but totally forgot to complete because I am lazy and awful but here, have a Catwoman Claw necklace to make up for it:



...and I also didn't talk about designer Jeremy Scott's Superhero inspired line from fashion week this past spring.

So pretty much what I'm saying is I have a Superhero themed fashion post in my future whether I want it to be there or not. OH WELL, I GUESS I HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO WINDOW SHOP FOR COMIC BOOK RELATED FASHION FOR THE GREATER GOOD the greater good, RIGHT GUYS? RIGHT. I WILL JUST GO AND DO THAT NOW.

From JustJared.com comes a couple of spy shots taken on the set of The Dark Knight Rises.

(And no you do not get a cut.)





There's some speculation as to whether or not these images are real, and I too am a little bit skeptical, even though the presence of Gary Oldman lends a sense of legitimacy to the images. Is this the actual Catwoman costume? Is it a decoy for the real one? Nobody knows.

I'm not digging the mask and combination ear-headband-goggles thing going on, but I was also strongly against Heath Ledger's Joker on first glance. We'll see how the movie turns out.

What say you, readers?

It's not a terribly well known fact, but I'm a devotee of Vogue magazine and haute couture in general. I don't usually indulge in talking about it because it seems a love of comics and a love of fashion don't really go hand in hand. I mean, both IRL and online, I hang around comic people and talking fashion at length in front of a geeky circle of friends often feels like talking into the ether. And you know, that's perfectly fine. Comics are definitely my thing, more than anything else, and I'm completely content with parking myself in a chair with a stack of fashion magazines for a few hours to sate myself.

But, every once in a while, my main obsession crosses with one of my minor ones and I get the opportunity to excitedly hop around, flapping my hands and squealing like a little girl, because OMG THERE ARE COMIC BOOK BARBIES NOW.

(Did I mention one of my other minor passions is fashion dolls? No? Well now you know. And I gotta admit, I am way more ashamed of that one than the haute couture...)

I've been doing that very thing for the past week or so, ever since some shots from the set of The Dark Knight Rises hit the interwebs.

My first reaction was Oh greeeeat, it's 'When in Rome' Catwoman.

(Well, actually, my first reaction was Oh! It's Silkstone Barbie Selina!:



...like I said: Fashion dolls.)

But all the buzz got me thinking about something I've been wanting to talk about for awhile.

Namely, high, high fashion. )

Katy Perry has a new perfume out, called 'Purr':





I'm so enamored with the cat shaped bottle I'm not sure how to describe the maniacal glee I was filled with when I first saw it. The little fangirl in me is a total sucker for all things cat-shaped and tastefully sparkly.

And purple! Oh, I love purple...

Actually, having spotted this, I'm reminded of another nifty cat-shaped bottle that I've seen around lately, Moselland Rielsling, a German wine that comes in chic cat-shaped bottles:



I don't particularly care for Riesling, myself, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't briefly entertain the idea of buying a bottle the first time I saw it.

And suddenly, I am reminded of the "Drink Like Selina" post I was working on and never finished a few months back, which consisted of delicious theme cocktails. Hrm...I should get on that, shouldn't I?
