Femme Fatale

The femme fatale continues to intrigue as a classic archetype.  Using her alluring beauty, mysterious charm and dangerous wit to ensnare her lovers,  Marlene Dietrich set the bar on what it takes to be a femme fatale in films like Morocco and Shanghai Express.   

Also another femme fatale we love is Anna May Wong, the first Asian American movie star.  Her exotic grace and languid sexuality made her an international force to reckon with.  We first laid eyes on her in the movie Morocco with Marlene where her ability to entrance was just as hypnotic and hard to turn away from.

Inspired by this dark take on glamour, darling three becomes a femme fatale as the heroine in her own tale.  Don't be afraid to do the same.  xo.
