Femme Fatale Post

A femme fatale is an alluring or seductive women whose charms ensure her lovers in bonds of irresistible desire, often leading them into compromising, dangerous, and deadly situations.  She is an archetypal character of literature and art.  Her ability to entrance and hypnotize her male victim was in the earliest stories seen as being supernatural, hence the most prosaic femme fatale today is still described as having a power akin to an enchantress, vampire, female monster or demon.

The phrase is French for “deadly women”
