Catwoman The only thing more provocative than the re-created Catwoman suit, it was widely agreed, was to see Michelle Pfeiffer actually wearing it! In the story of Batman Returns, Selina Kyle makes the costume herself after she's brought back from the dead by a coterie of cats. As a result, the suit has large, visible white stitches that reveal its homemade origins, becoming more distressed and torn as the film progresses. Those ragged stitches also function as visual suggestions that Selina has been sewn back together again in an act of physical regeneration.
The sleek, shiny, terrifically sexy Catwoman suit was made to fit for Michelle Pfeiffer in every way and was designed by Bob Ringwood and Mary Vogt who also designed the Batman costume.

"Catwoman's suit almost looks like liquid on the body," said Vogt. "It's like she's wearing black glass, the suit looks like a beautiful sort of dark sculpture. We wanted it to be elegant, sexy and modern, very high-tech while still being kind of homey-looking and organic."

Pfeiffer in that sleek, shiny, seductive and threatening Catwoman costume was a sight to behold, and everyone was amazed at how easily she was able to walk on those nasty-looking five-inch-tall spike heels, let alone punching, kicking and twirling in them!
