(probably not necessary to spoiler the above but I've done it now.
I think there are a few theories.
Firstly it could of been to torment Batman, since superheroes had been banned/expelled from the planet which would of included his good friend Diana (Wonder Woman).
Also it could of been to provoke Batman. Wonder Woman was a super hero and had super powers and could fight with the best of them, Catwoman had no powers at all other than her agility which in her now aged and fuller form would of meant she was powerless, perhaps this was Jokers way of saying just because you have a costume it doesn't make you any younger.
Lastly Selena Kyle was running an escort service which probably catered to every mans fantasy, including female superheroes, Joker dressed her up because of his own fantasy of Selena or Wonder Woman. I think in the comic it states she was tied up with cold coloured rope which made me think of WW's lasso.
