Blockbuster Beauty: Make Your Eyes the Cat's Meow

Anne Hathaway portrays Catwoman with her purrfect peeps in "The Dark Knight Rises."

Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na... Batman! Summer movie mania reaches a fever pitch today with the release of "The Dark Knight Rises." It's the final chapter of director Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy. 

Anne Hathaway's portrayal of Catwoman is probably the most anticipated. She has a lot to live up to based on past performances from Michelle Pfeiffer, Eartha Kitt and Julie Newmar, but her big brown eyes drive fans batty (in a good way). Ultimately, they should bring a more alluring quality to her role as the feline fatale.   

Wanna turn your eyes into the Cat's Meow? Check out how other blockbuster beauties, such as Mila Kunis ("Ted"), Emma Stone ("The Amazing Spider-Man") and Katy Perry ("Part of Me"), do it. Plus, we've assembled pretty palettes for your peepers, and eye creams and gels to create your own superstar saucers.
