Femme Fatale

this term was used in one of my classes so i looked up exactly what it was
"A femme fatale is a mysterious and seductive woman whose charms ensnare her lovers in bonds of irresistible desire, often leading them into compromising, dangerous, and deadly situations. She is an archetype or stock character of literature and art. Her ability to entrance and hypnotize her victim was in the earliest stories seen as being literally supernatural, hence the most prosaic femme fatale today is still described as having a power akin to an enchantress, vampire, female monster or demon."

Of course I wanted to find some classic art that displays this archetype, and love the vibe they give off

just a little promiscuous...
