Femme Fatale Ooh La la!

For any of you who don't know what a femme fatale is, the definition is a woman who is mysterious, seductive and downright dangerous! Her charms will ensnare you, your desire for her will enflame you, and you will be led into compromising and dangerous situations.

Do not be fooled by this woman, she is out to get your deepest secrets revealed, even if it means putting you in danger.

The Femme fatale is an actual translation from the French for 'Deadly Woman'. So hold onto your hats guys, when your woman has learned the art of seduction in the femme fatale way, your lives may never be the same again!

Don't fall over in those shoes!

Beware of the Shades!

Beware of the Shades!

Shake that booty ladies!

  1. Learn the art of slinking. This may take a bit of doing, and you will probably end up falling flat on your face to start with, but when you have captured that move, you will be able to slink around, in and out of the crowd. Just remember to wear sensible shoes, you can't slink weariing 6" stiletto heels. Your feet will get stuck in the carpet and you will end up taking a dive!
  2. Lower your voice until it becomes seductive and sexy. Do not walk around house muttering 'I want to be alone'! You will be! Your partner will think you have gone completely bonkers! So keep it low, but sultry.
  3. Throw out all your clothes and invest in smooth dark dresses and boa's. Do not substitute the boa with a scarf. Your husband will think you have got a chest cold and ply you with medicine!
  4. Turn on that look. When your partner asks you a question, turn around and look over your shoulder and slightly lower your lashes as though you are undressing him with your eyes. Please do NOT squint, he will think you are myopic and rush you to the opticians to get you some thick lens glasses! Either that or he will start to believe that you are actually glaring at him, and that will surely start an argument.
  5. There is a difference between being sultry and mysterious, and downright trashy. Always wear your new clothes with panache'. Do not think that the backless, frontless dress is going to turn him on. Especially if you are on the plump side. He will just think you are going to ask, Do I look fat In this? And run out the door. Smooth satiny clothes are the best, or even silk, they will not stick to your fat, but just slide over your contours!
  6. Buy yourself a really sexy pair of black silk gloves, and wear them whenever you go out, or even around the house. You may get some funny looks but after a while he will start to appreciate the fact that those gloves are very smooth! Don't forget to take them off when doing the washing, you don't want them to go soggy and grey!
  7. Get out all the old magazines and take a look at the hairstyles. Choose which era you would like to copy. Rita Hayworth, Elizabeth Taylor, or even further back with Hedy Lamarr. Get rid of all those split ends, and make sure you go to a hairdresser. Do not do it yourself. You don't want to end up with the birds nest look!
  8. Choose a perfume that you feel suits you, and start swishing it on. You want to make it your brand, so make sure you wear it all the time, and especially to bed. Do not put too much on. Spraying it around like a can of fly spray is not going to get him in the mood. All you will do is choke the poor guy to death. I know you are a femme fatale, but you don't have to kill your lover while trying to seduce him! Death by perfume, well, stinks!
  9. If you really want to look and feel mysterious, then you need dark glasses. Now I know what you are thinking. But it doesn't have to be dangerous! Try to find a pair of fifties Shades, preferably ones with not too dark lenses. Do no wear them around the house when its dark outside, you will fall over the cat, bang your leg against the coffee table and probably have an eye out if you fall flat on your face! You want to be seductive? Perch the glasses on the end of your nose until your partner comes in then slide them up with your finger, wearing the seductive sexy gloves. And don't forget to say 'Hello Darling, would you like a drink?'
  10. Try and find a retro cigarette holder. No, it doesn't matter whether you smoke or not, just wave it around and say 'Darlink' a lot. Your husband or partner should be getting used to you by now, so no it won't be that shocking for him. Unless of course you decide to blow smoke all over his new suit, I don't think that will impress him much. By the time he has stopped coughing, he won't be in the mood for a good seeing to in bed! You are trying to seduce him, not choke him to death.
  11. Shoes are always the sexy part of the outfit. All men like Stiletto's, or high heels. But do yourself a favor, get used to them before you try the seduction scene. Doing a header straight into his lap is one thing if you mean to do it! But not a good idea if he's not expecting it. And of course you may break an ankle, and that just wouldn't do anything for your sex life!
  12. Change your make up. Dark sultry colors around the eyes will make you look dangerous, sexy and downright alluring. Do not plaster black eyeliner all the way around your eyes. And then add eyeshadow on top of it. You will end up looking like a demented Panda. The only thing you will be getting that night is a box of tissues shoved under your nose!
  13. Red lipstick is a must. After doing your eyes, you will look absolutely stunning with that lipstick. Do not slather it on as though you are painting a cupboard. One kiss and it will look like the Chainsaw Massacre!
  14. Jewelry is always very seductive as long as its Diamonds. Buy yourself a Diamond bracelet or large ring, and wear them on top of your sexy gloves. It will drive him mad. Do not put them on before you pull on your stockings. You will get so tangled, you will rip your stockings to pieces, and maybe even break a nail!
  15. And last but not least, try everything on before you pounce on him at the door. Do not forget those sexy undies, tried and tested to make sure that they fit you, so you don't look like a pudding in a cloth! Then learn to slink across the room, while holding the cigarette lighter in your hand and your dark glasses on your nose. Just remember, you want to be sexy, sultry, dangerous and a Femme Fatale. And when I say Fatale, I mean Fatale. Not fatal!

Good luck! And go get him ladies!

If It All Goes Right, This Is How You Will Look! A Real Femme Fatale!

Can't recall a Femme Fatale in reality although there were quite a few 'teasers' in my home town.

Sweet dreams.

Thanks so much, Dale, that was good of you.

Dale Anderson from The High Seas on January 09, 2019:

Love it. If the world needs one thing, it's more dangerous dames.

We've been looking at the Femme Fatale of historic and actual 'celebs'. Now i'm thinking hard of actual ones in my life. Still thinking hard on this!

Nell Rose (author) from England on October 28, 2017:

Thanks Gadfly, true!

Nell Rose (author) from England on October 27, 2017:

Hi Ian, always good to see you! and how interesting! I never knew any of that! And tiger lady, Wow! didn't know that about dragon being ill fortune. Have a great day Ian!

Ian Stuart Robertson from London England on October 27, 2017:

When going on to the internet to ascertain what to contribute here the majority of sites were dedicated to Hollywood actresses. Now, there has never been any doubt in my mind as to the great Femme Fatales of the silver screen, they are cast to portray a character albeit convincingly. As the very name derives from the French, lets look at some of them that have come to us (in my time at least). I'll start with Brigitte Friang a Lady who fought at Dien binh Phue. Whilst on the subject of Viet Nam, the term Dragon Lady is not in use as dragon is considered 'ill fortune' so they use the term Tiger Lady.

Nell Rose (author) from England on September 15, 2016:

LOL! love the way you keep popping back up with your observations! good to see you limpet!

Ian Stuart Robertson from London England on September 15, 2016:

After lengthy consideration. i've decided to recollect who actually along my life journey is worthy of the title 'Femme Fatale' which we have pretty much defined and even given examples. Well i regarded some of my school teachers in awe of although i didn't learn any thing about their private lives. Like wise the girls in my class were obviously to young to know about such things as seduction and beguilement. Naturally there were some girls that had the quality of allure but of course i was in my pre pubescent years. After the release of the 1963 production of Cleopatra it became common for many girls and in deed women as well to sport the Cleopatra hair style of Elizabeth Taylor. Both Cleo and Liz very apt at Femme fatale by the way. So i really can't think of a name of any one i knew personally even though i overheard talk of 'I can get any man i want, use him and then get rid of him!'

Nell Rose (author) from England on August 27, 2016:

lol! thanks Laurinzo! glad you liked it, nell

Nell Rose (author) from England on August 26, 2016:

lol! you never fail to amaze me limpet! always a font of knowledge! I didn't know any of that! hope your enjoying the gorgeous weather!

Ian Stuart Robertson from London England on August 26, 2016:

Further to my comments on the fierce 'Dragon Lady' of the Orient. I'm pretty sure the term originated post World War II when allied servicemen had to be aware of unscrupulous proprietors of the bars and gambling dens not only in Hong Kong but elsewhere in Asia. There was also the possibility of the Dragon Lady being an enemy spy putting her in the classic 'Femme Fatale' category. I previously mention the actress Nancy Kwan who was normally in fun loving roles but the 1967 film 'The corrupt ones' portrays her as the leader of a brutal gang intent on stealing a valuable artifact along with rival gangsters. Ruthless she is and doesn't tolerate failure from her men with punishments being disproportionate. Can't remember the ending though.

LJ Scott from Phoenix, Az. on August 25, 2016:

Well you got it Nell... very well spoken, and no it is not just for women; such an informative and entertaining view!!!

Nell Rose (author) from England on March 17, 2016:

LOL! that's taken 6 weeks Limpet! thanks for coming back!

Ian Stuart Robertson from London England on March 17, 2016:

Marilyn Manson !

Nell Rose (author) from England on January 29, 2016:

Oh yes good old Dita! lol! she is married to what's his name? lol! forgotten, help here?

Ian Stuart Robertson from London England on January 29, 2016:

They just don't come like they used to. Just trying hard who would fit the bill these days and it took some time to 'come up' with the name Dita Von Teese who is into the burlesque genre but could quite adequately aspire to being a Femme Fatale.

Nell Rose (author) from England on December 04, 2015:

LOL! fatal mistake! laughing so hard now! never ever paula! you are a legend!

Suzie from Carson City on December 02, 2015:

Nell girlfriend! Oh PLEASE! Anything that takes this much time, energy and instruction is NOT for me! Especially now that I'm up there in years! I'm sure I could pass for a "Fatal Mistake".....but Femme Fatale? Tell me when I can stop laughing!! Peace, Paula

Nell Rose (author) from England on December 02, 2015:

lol! thanks limpet, seems you have really thought that out! these days there are so many reality programmes on that they are all kids so Femme Fatale doesn't even cut it! lol! thanks for reading, nell

Ian Stuart Robertson from London England on December 01, 2015:

Can't say i can see any current celebrity who rates in the 'Femme Fatale' category these days. We sometimes see them as a villainess in cartoon characters for children. The Hollywood screen sirens too numerous to mention and Anna May Wong's (and other oriental actresses) as the Dragon Lady began to phase out in the 70's i think. Recently i learned Bollywood apparently wants to exploit the 'film noir' genre. With no shortage of exotic Hindi Deva's to be had there, i hope we get to see. It's been said that all Hindi women have the essence of Kali Ma otherwise known as Kali the destroyer!

Nell Rose (author) from England on July 04, 2015:

lol! Hiya Deb, well who needs a bra when ya got a boa? LOL! thanks for reading, nell

Nell Rose (author) from England on July 04, 2015:

Hi limpet, sounds good to me! wonder if we will get that over here? thanks limpet, always good to hear from you.

Debra Allen from West Virginia on July 03, 2015:

That ws so good and funny. LOL You didn't say a bra...only a boa! Hahaha!

Ian Stuart Robertson from London England on July 03, 2015:

There is an Australian televison series under production now about a female private detective named Phryne Fisher (pronounced Fry nee) set in the 1920's in Melbourne. Not having seen yet but read an article in Sunday paper Phryne has returned home from Europe where she had been serving as a nurse at the Front (or Paris) to find she had inherited a mansion in a well to do area. Phryne becomes a high society flapper in the Roaring Twenties jazz razzamataz. more to follow.

Nell Rose (author) from England on April 22, 2015:

Hi limpet, yep that's so right! I never thought of that, its a bit before my time the old beehive but what a fun hairstyle!

Ian Stuart Robertson from London England on April 21, 2015:

Whilst reviewing all hub topics it suddenly dawned on me that the 'bee hive' hair styling is a great grooming feature suited to the Femme Fatale. Celebrities too numerous to mention sport this elegant coiffure. Some even have their hair permanently a bee hive.

Nell Rose (author) from England on September 26, 2014:

Hi limpet, lol! now that's just the way it should be! haha! thanks limpet!

Ian Stuart Robertson from London England on September 26, 2014:

I'd hazard a guess that the Femme Fatale may be traced in folklore right back to the garden and eventual 'Fall of man'. Here we have Adam a fairly descent chap (though a bit nieve) who was 'head over heels' in love with his companion Eve. Then Lilith threw a 'spanner in the works' causing mischief and expecting males to be in submission to her.

Nell Rose (author) from England on September 24, 2014:

Hiya lily, sorry it took so long to answer, been away. Yeah come on over! I would love to meet up, that will be awesome! yes let me know okay?

Lillian K. Staats from Wasilla, Alaska on September 23, 2014:

Look at your numbers Nell! You're an internet highway for this site.

I reread this one, it made me laugh all over again! Even tho all the advice is solid, I have a way of going too far, or not far enough, landing me in dateless land...

You are kind to be with your ex. Everyone must be able to be who they are.

I most especially wish we could tip a cocktail or two, say inappropriate things loudly, and wear bright clashing colors.

If all goes well, I may be headed over the pond. MAY. Let's manifest this thing! I will certainly let you know... love yaz, lily

Nell Rose (author) from England on September 18, 2014:

Hi Lantokey, lol! I have to admit, I didn't know who she was so took a sneeky peek to understand what you meant, and then of course I recognised her! but I really don't know anything about her, thanks for pointing me in the right direction, now I have to read some more!

Nell Rose (author) from England on August 19, 2014:

Thanks Rhonda, lol! I have never been one to be feminine! if there is something to fall over in heels I will do it!

Rhonda Lytle from Deep in the heart of Dixie on August 18, 2014:

This was great! I grinned the whole way through. The falling on your face in new stilettos hit a bit close to home but hey, every gal has to learn sometime. You outdid yourself. Very funny.

Nell Rose (author) from England on August 15, 2014:

Hi Michael, LOL! no, no man is safe! Grrrr! yep most of its funny, if only you could see behind the 'scenes' so to speak! thanks for making me laugh!

Micheal from United Kingdom on August 15, 2014:

Holy Moly no man is safe.

Well some men will be safe I am sure, but in general most men are pretty dumb when it comes to the Femme Fatale's of this world.

Great read Nell, now I know what to watch out for ; )

Nell Rose (author) from England on August 03, 2014:

Thanks Getit, yes me too! lol! glad you liked it, nell

Dale Anderson from The High Seas on August 03, 2014:

LOVE this hub. As a huge fan of film noir, this is a topic close to my heart.

Nell Rose (author) from England on July 30, 2014:

Hi limpet, yes she seems to be more Xena warrior princess than Wonder Woman! lol! sounds interesting though, great to see you, nell

Ian Stuart Robertson from London England on July 30, 2014:

A new Wonder Woman film is now on the verge of being released for public entertainment. I certainly hope this version of Wonder Woman lives up to the genre of superheroine. In the publicity still already available she is depicated as an Amazonian warrior armed with a sword and ready for action.

Ian Stuart Robertson from London England on June 21, 2014:

I can remember the commedian Bob Hope doing a parody of the Gabor sisters.

You've got to laugh!

Nell Rose (author) from England on June 20, 2014:

Hi limpet, yes I remember them because my mother used to mention them, I think they were the Kardashians of their time! lol!

Ian Stuart Robertson from London England on June 20, 2014:

A few days ago i was pondering what input to add to hubpage topics and i came up with the Gabor sisters. There were three, namely Zsa, Magda and Eva. Now what did these Ladies do to merit the Femme Fatale category? They were exotic, blonde and between them went through some 15 or 16 husbands. I never saw any of them in film other than Eva as a New York socialite in a 1960s not very good T.V. series called Greenacres. Zsa was known for her love of fast convertibles.

Nell Rose (author) from England on May 13, 2014:

Thanks limpet, have a great day!

Ian Stuart Robertson from London England on May 13, 2014:

Nell, i was wondering if perhaps too much thread appears on your hub then it may close for comment but i shall definitely revisit from tyme to tyme


the limpet

Nell Rose (author) from England on May 12, 2014:

Hi limpet, ah yes I have heard of Mata Hari, you keep getting me interested in these people and I just have to go and look them up! lol! thanks again, nell

Ian Stuart Robertson from London England on May 12, 2014:

Two things this time around. I have been intrigued by the idea of a long stemmed cigarette holder being an ideal accoutrement for the Femme Fatale, there should be lots of photographic imagery to support this premise. Also Nell, i just noticed a book in the lending library titled Femme Fatale by Pat Shipman and deals with the loves, life and the unknown concerning Margarethe Zelle otherwise known as Mata Hari.

Nell Rose (author) from England on May 08, 2014:

I was a punk back in the late 70s limpet! lol! black plastic bin liners, razor blade earings and lots of chains! I did do the goth thing too, but never wore a wedding dress! lol! I love anything to do with Greece too, so would love to go back for a visit, nell

Ian Stuart Robertson from London England on May 08, 2014:

Nell! You and i have developed a good rapport. Something occurred to me whilst i was passing a hoarding on Bank Underground station in the City of London. The hire of wedding gowns which would hardly apply to me but i thought 'must tell Nell' that for a few years now Goth Girls ( i prefer the term Gothique Chique) some have been wearing bridal attire to pop festivals as it contrasts with the more traditional black/purple and the symbology of marriage implication suits the Goth counter culture. I enjoyed the mid 1960 s film Jason & the Argonaughts which had Honor Blackman in the very commanding role of the Goddess Hera on Mount Olympus.

Nell Rose (author) from England on May 07, 2014:

Hi limpet, that doesn't surprise me, different countries and cultures always latch onto the thing that the westerner visitors know, for example when I went to Kos in Greece everywhere was named after jason and the argonauts! lol! argo this argo that and so on, so yes it does make sense, thanks, nell

Ian Stuart Robertson from London England on May 07, 2014:

What struck me as more than coincidence in Hong Kong on the Kowloon side of the harbour was the number of bars claiming to be the original Susie Wong bar. Suzie Wong being a fictional character portrayed by Nancy Kwan who herself is actually Eurasian. Eurasians in my opinion pocess a combination of western glamour and oriental demure.

Nell Rose (author) from England on May 06, 2014:

Hi limpet, I had to go and look her up, that's great that you got to go to Hong Kong, and get your photo with those girls, I love learning something new!

Ian Stuart Robertson from London England on May 06, 2014:

I found some prints of Anna May Wong on the internet and i think the colour sepia photos simply add to the mystique of the oriental beauty.When i was in the army i got a weeks leave in Hong Kong and i asked the two hotel secretaries if i could be photographed with one either side of me and they consented to do so. They were wearing the traditional cheong sam which is just a body sheath, a modest garment but simply accentuates their form. Anna May Wong looked utterly divine in cheong sam.

Nell Rose (author) from England on May 03, 2014:

LOLOLO! now that is something I can believe! thanks for making me laugh, and have a wonderful weekend limpet!

Ian Stuart Robertson from London England on May 03, 2014:

Thank you for showing me how. Nell. Yesterday a Lass young enough to be my granddaughter showed me how to activate my bankcard. But back on the topic of How to be a Femme Fatale when i was in my pre testosterone days i though the reason Ladies polished their fingernails red (the only colour available then) and glossed their lips red was to cover over the blood from any male they clawed or fanged!

Nell Rose (author) from England on May 02, 2014:

LOLOLO! now I will have to get some of those!

Nell Rose (author) from England on May 02, 2014:

Hi limpet, your hub didn't show up straight away because you never changed your settings in your profile! click on edit, go to the bottom of the page and you will see a box that says something like do you want to show only featured hubs on my profile. click on 'no' then you will see it! good luck! and that club sounds great in shoreditch! lol!

Ian Stuart Robertson from London England on May 02, 2014:

Lots of sites on Anna May Wong as the 'Butterfly' a term in in Chinese Cantonese for a 'Femme Fatale' that is like a butterfly fluttering from one to another.

And the latest in fashion trends - glow in the dark underwear!

Ian Stuart Robertson from London England on May 02, 2014:

First answer; when i started with Hubpages i submitted a lengthy article on the Goth counterculture which has reached cult status here in olde London towne now indeed across the country with annual conventions in Whitby. When i posted my hub it didn't appear so now i simply engage in friendly exchanges on subjects such as Goth, Femme Fatale, human values etc. As a 15 year old to me Christine Keeler was a 'good sort' but She was used by countless males with positions of power (married also) and i like to think of Miss Keeler as famous for bringing down a Government. Last evening i frequented a Bohemian style club in Shoreditch and there on the wall were up to a dozen 'life size' paintings of an oriental Lady, i say oriental because She is in fact American and that is Anna May Wong who is to be subject in my next Femme Fatale series.

Nell Rose (author) from England on May 01, 2014:

HI limpet, when are you going to write a hub about all your fascinating info? this is great! I have heard of Christine Keeler, yes she is quite infamous! lol! hope your having a great day, nell

Ian Stuart Robertson from London England on May 01, 2014:

Oh! Suddenly i remember the Femme Fatales i wanted to add to Your hub Nell. It got me thinking when i was in the vicinity of Cliveden House ancestral home of the Astors now open to the public courtesy of National Trust. Stopping at an inn for refreshment i notice a Lass on bar staff with a striking likeness to Christine Keeler but She didn't know who Christine Keeler is. Since Miss Keeler is still alive and well it would be prudent not to do an article on Her suffice to say that in the current West End play on the affair the actresses playing Christine and Mandy Rice are perfect matches of the real personages. Just to add on my previous post regarding Elizabeth 'Jane' Shore it was some years after Her death an engraving of this Lady was recovered from a ditch on the De Bouvoire estate in North London hence the naming of the place (to the best of my knowledge)

Nell Rose (author) from England on April 30, 2014:

lol! thanks limpet, I am learning so many new things with your info! have a great day, nell

Ian Stuart Robertson from London England on April 30, 2014:

I now have a closer to home Femme Fatale to introduce. Elizabeth 'Jane' Shore or Mistress Shore as Shakespeare referred to and from whom London's Shoreditch derives it's name. Jane Shore had a string of male suitors but attracted the attention of King Edward IV who appointed Her his Royal confidanteand is said to have stated "She is Queen above all my paramours!" which led to a lot of Court intrigue and a false accusation of sorcery dropped by lack of evidence. Next i shall mention some more modern day Femme Fatales but i've forgotten who they are!

Nell Rose (author) from England on April 29, 2014:

Hi Limpet, sorry not been on here properly for a few days, oh yes the good old boa! LOL! sounds like you got all the memory still there of the event! haha! thanks again, nell

Nell Rose (author) from England on April 29, 2014:

Thanks LCaverson, glad you liked it, nell

Ian Stuart Robertson from London England on April 29, 2014:

I wanted to add a further remark on tips for becoming a Femme Fatale.

In younger days i was involved in amateur drama and when our drama group performed an impromptu play which involved a rather risque leading Lady i learnt of an accessory called the 'boa' this was for want of a better description a scarf entirely of feathers and it sure did enhance her character, another item was a garter yet concealed during most of the performance used when the need to slide dollar bills in there. Another prop She had on hand was a riding crop!

Leslie Caverson from Virginia Beach, VA. on April 28, 2014:

This was awesome! Great tips and cleverly written.

Ian Stuart Robertson from London England on April 25, 2014:

I should have mentioned that H.R.H. Princess Margeret who we lost some six or more years ago in my opinion did have a 'fairy tale' wedding in Westminister Abbey, a film of it was in colour and i have a commemorative book on the occasion. The photograph of Her Highness in the bath was not released to the public until now some time has elapsed and would not be deemed scandalous. Another poignant study of the Princess depicts Her Highness daringly bare shouldered, magnificently coifurred hairstyle and and a rather ostentatious earing affixed to Her earlobe. Her Highness's facial expression is totally beguiling. Whilst serving in the army my battalion was grouped in the same brigade as Princess Margaret's Own Regiment at Minden Barracks and we heard the Princess with the honoury rank of Colonel was not averse to being very strict and for 'calling out' the guard in the middle of the night for no apparent reason.

Ian Stuart Robertson from London England on April 25, 2014:

At risk of getting off the topic and with no disrespect to our Royalty i'd like to nominate Her Royal Highness The Princess Margaret may She repose in peace as a potential Femme Fatale when placed alongside other Princesses. Firstly on V.E. day Princess Elizabeth (now The Queen) and Her sister dressed as ordinary civilians slipped out of the palace and mingled with the cheering public and were never noticed. Princess Margaret on reaching adult life was required to follow a strict protocol realising that She was a 'passenger' H.R.H. sort of eloped with her paramour to a thames side warehouse to live out of the public eye until Kensington palace was ready for them to stay in. At the age of 32 H.R.H.was phographed bathing wearing nothing but a sparkling tiara in gorgeously coiffured hair styling and with a most provocative countenance.

Nell Rose (author) from England on April 23, 2014:

Hi limpet, lol!

Ian Stuart Robertson from London England on April 23, 2014:

Oh Nell! Profuse apologies for misspelling of Neil Sedaka.

That's better now! My Domme gives me 1 demerit mark

As a little boy we used to listen to the 'Top 40' hits on the tranny (transistor radio) and i can recall Neil Sadakka in one of his earliest songs 'Run Samson run, Delilahs on the way' and the last lyric ends with Theres a little piece of Delilah in each and every Gal. At around the same time Don and Phil Everley had a dedication to the Femme Fatale called Temptation!

The greatest 'catfight' on screen of all time has got to be the verbal exchange between Glenda Jackson and Vanesa Redgrave in the film Mary Queen of Scots

Two powerful actresses though i'm partial to Glenda.

Thats fascinating limpet! fancy Helena being a local girl where you live, i think she is a great actress. I love her in Merlin with Sam Neil! thanks again, nell

When M.P.s got caught on the 'fiddle' around about the

same time a rather 'tounge in cheek' article on the front

page of Ham & High read Glenda Jackson in cake stall

scandal as She was merely doing a fund raiser and She

came across as quite sincere. Helena is also a local

girl (Golders Green)and i like her Goth side!

Nell Rose (author) from England on April 09, 2014:

Hi limpet, lol! yes Glenda Jackson can be a bit scary sometimes! I do love Helena, though, she is a great actress! thanks again limpet!

Ian Stuart Robertson from London England on April 09, 2014:

I always thought of the Hollywood actresses of the 40 s and 50 s as glamorous well we used the word 'starlet' in those days and then the Continental actresses appeared with the word 'sex kitten' being introduced. By the 80 s there were some 'drop dead gorgeous' and 'in your face' women but currently i think that Helena Bonham-Carter plays a good Femme Fatale when required. Also i wouldn't like to be on the receiving end if i incurred the wrath of Glenda Jackson.

While I'm not likely personally to apply any of your tips to my wardrobe, I will certainly appreciate any friends of mine who are of the female variety who might choose to experiment with your ideas. Voted up! Nice hub!

Nell Rose (author) from England on April 08, 2014:

HI limpet, oh Wow! that must have been a real pain! its not the first time I have heard that happening, remember Bridey Murphy? she was convinced that she was the reincarnation of someone, or someone was her, can't remember now! but it turns out she was just remembering a book!

i started a masterpiece that i called 'Birth of an Empire' and submitted installments to a writer's blog only to discover i was unconsciosly using content from a 1930 s film from India about a girl destined to rule so i couldn't proceed and offered my intellectual property to the author of the blog.

Nell Rose (author) from England on April 07, 2014:

lol! thanks limpet! well I never knew that! can't wait for your first hub, let me know when you have written it, okay?

Ian Stuart Robertson from London England on April 07, 2014:

the word Lady as i understand comes from the French 'La Dysse' which translates as Deity so at some stage Women must have been worshipped!

Thanks for your thoughts limpet, good to see you again, nell

Ian Stuart Robertson from London England on April 05, 2014:

i like this site for the stimulating exchange of ideas

Because the word 'Femme Fatale' comes from the French

makes it exotic from the start coupled with the word

'boudoir' also conjures up intimacy and sultry ness

Hollywood actresses had a special quality of allure and

i recall one who was annotated 'The most beautiful Woman

in the world'
