Marion Cotillard looks gorgeously goth on the cover of WSJ. Magazine.

Holy bombshell, Batman!

Everyone's been buzzing about Anne Hathaway's kinky Catwoman costume for The Dark Knight Rises, but it's time for her costar Marion Cotillard to have her moment in the spotlight.

And how! Though she's a loyal brand ambassador for Lady Dior—more about that later—the French beauty is the cat's meow in a black embellished gown with sheer paneling from Gucci's Fall 2012 collection, boldly paired with a slick wet-look up-do, blood-red lips, and a seductively arched eyebrow for the July/August cover of WSJ. Magazine.

Inside, Cotillard, who plays businesswoman Miranda Tate in the latest Batman film, opens up about motherhood ("I'm super-cool now") and modeling for Dior.

"A good model is someone who will create a story with an image," she says. "You won’t be inspired the same way by every outfit.”

And what of her role in one of the year's most hotly anticipated blockbuster films? Cotillard says signing on was a no-brainer.

"I was crazy about Batman growing up—he was kind of a fantasy,” she tells the magazine.

Props for making that fantasy a reality, girl. Now go show Catwoman who's boss.
