‘Dark Knight Rises’ in New York with a radiant Anne Hathaway

Anne Hathaway’s Catwoman transformation has come full circle.

The actress stepped out for the New York premiere of “The Dark Knight Rises” on Monday looking far from the suit-clad vixen we’ve seen on bus sides and billboards for months.

On the heather gray carpet, Hathaway sported her “Les Miserables” pixie cut and a brilliant white gown with a long train -- a look that her character Selina Kyle might find a bit precious.

Annie rocked it hard, however, alongside co-stars Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Morgan Freeman, Gary Oldman, Marion Cotillard and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Heavily guarded may be an understatement when it comes to describing the secrecy surrounding “Rises,” a cue Hathaway took in answering personal questions at the event, about the status of her wedding planning for instance.


“Weddings ... girl, do you see what I’m dealing with right now?” Hathaway told E! News, pointing to the madness of the premiere.

She’s not wrong. The cast hopped on a plane after the screening to make Tuesday’s scheduled London debut, and umpteen more stops she’ll probably make before the movie opens July 20. And they’ll visit Paris for the premiere there July 21, ahead of the opening in that city on the 25th.

One that’s already looking massive, by the by. Stay tuned to the Ministry for more “Dark Knight Rises” news ahead of opening weekend.
