Ladylike: Anne Hathaway is pictured on the Dark Knight Rises set in LA today in character as Selina Kyle
Catwoman's alter ego Selina Kyle is typically portrayed as a petty thief.
But it appears as though the character may be moving on up for Anne Hathaway's portrayal of her in The Dark Knight Rises.
The actress was pictured on the Los Angeles set of the film today looking very prim and proper.
The 28-year-old's ladylike appearance is a far cry from the publicity still released by Warner Bros last month showing Anne in a leather catsuit riding her motorbike.
Hathaway filmed scenes today dressed in a black dress and cropped jacket, gloves, a wide-brimmed hat and heels.
Anne wore a perfect pout of red lipstick and wore prim pearl earrings.

While she waited in between takes, the actress removed her jacket to stay cool in the sweltering LA heat, which hit 89F today.
When director Christopher Nolan yelled 'action,' Anne wheeled her suitcase and handbag to the curb and hailed a yellow taxi.
Christian Bale was also spotted on set negotiating traffic. Bale, dressed in a black suit, weaved his way in and out of cars on a busy street.
