The Penguin doesn't look like a penguin so clearly he shouldn't be the Penguin am I right?
Nose, body shape, the attire imitating the black and white contrast, stature.
The point of these characters is to quickly stand out for what they represent, and in comics this is done aesthetically. In Batman, the characters that are not part of society are aesthetically different.
If you can't respect the style, choose something else to bring to the big screen.
I mean, it's not even close to the same mask, and seems to range from no mask at all to a complete head/hair covering. Might as well demand that she have a tail too.
Really, so far I liked the Hathaway one because she was wearing a black suit but her tits weren't hanging out and .. then I saw that picture. Which.. well, no, her tits aren't hanging out, but... still annoys me.
And the majority of those incarnations have the cat hood. What has been the comic presence of those two unmasked and the semi-mask? Batman has similarly had various incarnations, but the images for both Catwoman and Batman remain the bat mask and cape, and the cat hood.
Hathaway's cat suit didn't have the tits hanging out, but they babe-fied her via the hair.
She's said that the suit does a lot in the movie, and one of the things I'm hoping it does is a change of costume into Catwoman. Nolan did well by Dark Knight, so I'm holding out hope.
