The purple dress finished, yesterday Cathy and I set out for another fun-filled fashion shoot on the gritty streets of Gotham.
Once again our story takes us back in time -- to 1937 to be exact. I think you'll agree that Cathy looks especially fetching in Thirties frocks.
For the literal-minded among you, please note: the character of Cathy's grandmother, Beatrice Lane, is played by Cathy herself. Beatrice, poor thing, is in an urn somewhere in the closet.
So sit back, suspend your disbelief, and watch Cathy as she models Hollywood "Pattern of Youth" #1471!

I think you'll agree I owe that girl lunch, at the very least.
