Anne Hathaway's Catwoman "Robber" Costume Will Include Goggles

As usual, Christopher Nolan and company are maintaining strict secrecy regarding details about The Dark Knight Rises. But Hollywood Life scored an interview with a "source very close to the costume design," who revealed details about Anne Hathaway's Catwoman costume.
The outfit apparently won't have the overt sexiness many are expecting, but instead will go back to the DC comics for inspiration. Rumors on the Internet speculate that the design will resemble that of award-winning comic-book artist Darwyn Cooke, who worked on the reboot of the Catwoman comic 10 years ago.
The anonymous source spoke to Hollywood Life about the design:
Anne's outfit is more tactical, like the comic book, than the previous Batman movies. She will definitely be wearing the goggles and it's going to be less sexy than Halle Berry and Michelle Pfeiffer's Catwoman costumes. She's going to look more like a robber... But fan boys shouldn't be worried. This costume is going to be form-fitting enough to make Anne look smoking hot.

The Dark Knight Rises opens July 20, 2012, and we'll keep you up to date as further details trickle in.
