Miss Ruby’s got reason to celebrate with the news that she’ll be starring in the new Batwoman series for The CW and doing a little trailblazing to boot, as the first lesbian actress to star as a lesbian superhero in a television series. To be blunt, we’ve never really been fans of her acting, but we find ourselves a bit begrudgingly optimistic about this news. She’s good at action work and she has a persona that straddles that line between “hot” and “unsettling” somewhat naturally, making her a good fit for the role. And let’s be even more blunt: CW superhero shows almost never require acting skills of any great depth. You need to be quick with a line and good with physical work.
Anyway, that’s the only reason we picked these shots; to opine about the casting news. But to give you every bit of bang for your imaginary buck, we may as well assess the dress as well.
It’s pretty cute. She always likes to use fashion to display her various tats and while we don’t love the size of that keyhole, we appreciate why she’s sporting it. The rest of it is so old-school femme that it almost needs that gap in order to be true to her style preferences. Our only quibble is that it could’ve been fitted just a bit better. It hangs off her.
