Barbara Kean is a classic character in the Batman cannon verse. She is best known as being Jim Gordon's wife, and that is how she started out on the show. In Season 1 when she was simply Gordon's fiancé (not yet his wife), she was seen in muted blues and perfect blow outs, features that were easily overlooked. In her evolution into the underworld's baddest crime boss, her outfits became increasingly eye catching. Oversize furs and glam sequins were a staple in season 3, only adding to the 1920's mob mol aesthetic that was her overall attitude.
