If you’re anything like us, you are already absolutely pumped to see Zoë Kravitz (as Catwoman) and Robert Pattinson star as the titular masked vigilante in The Batman, which arrives in theaters on March 4.
Just a few days ago, the pair hit the red carpet in London for the movie’s press tour, and wow!

Zoë Kravitz did not disappoint. The 33-year-old actress wore a gorgeous custom Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello gown to the event.
The curve-hugging black dress evokes images of what Kravitz may be wearing on screen, as Catwoman is best known for her super tight black getups.
However, the gown in question is a bit more elegant than what the sometimes-villain, sometimes-hero is typically seen wearing.

Kravitz’ dress was a black, floor-length halter dress that hugs every curve before blooming out into a subtle mermaid skirt. We love the scalloped edges on the halter top, which gave the dress a soft, dainty feel that juxtaposed the rest of the gown’s edgy features.
As the icing on the cake, the dress also had super-sexy cutouts, showing the most tasteful amount of underboob. Strangely enough, the shape of the cutouts was also reminiscent of the Bat-Signal, the image used to call Batman whenever Gotham is in need.

We’re not sure if this was on purpose or not, but either way, it is still a cool homage to the film.
Kravitz paired the gown with understated jewelry: black gemstone and pearl drop earrings and dark rings. The short actress wore her hair slicked back with minimal, cat-eye eyeliner, evoking her on-screen character’s look, and finished off the outfit with black, peep-toe stilettos.
This classy yet edgy look is stunning on the actress, and we love the way that many of her tattoos were on display.

A few days later, she wore another Catwoman-inspired look to the premiere of the movie in New York.

“That’s definitely the way I interpreted that, that they had some kind of romantic relationship,” Zoe said about her character’s sexuality in an interview with Pedestrian TV. Her casting was announced in October 2019.
In the film, Zoe’s character, Selina Kyle (Catwoman), is believed to be in a romantic relationship with her friend and roommate Anika.

“[The film is] very true to the character of Selina Kyle. She’s not yet Catwoman, but all the elements of how she’s going to become Catwoman are there,” the film’s director Matt Reeves said.
“And in terms of her relationship with Anika, I spoke to Zoë very early on and one of the things she said which I loved was that: ‘She’s drawn to strays because she was a stray and so she really wants to care for these strays because she doesn’t want to be that way anymore and Anika is like a stray and she loves her. She actually represents this connection that she has to her mother who she lost, who was a stray anymore’.”

“So I don’t think we meant to go directly in that way, but you can interpret it that way for sure. She has an intimacy with that character and it’s a tremendous and deep caring for that character, more so than a sexual thing, but there was meant to be quite an intimate relationship between them,” he added.
The Batman will hit theaters on March 4, and critics are already praising the stellar onscreen chemistry between Zoë Kravitz and Robert Pattinson.
