The Nowadays Femme Fatale

editorial & arteditorial

Single! Not available! Not affordable! Her Own money! Her Own independence! She's got class, worth and straightforward thinking! She's got the Jagger moves and the Itsy Bitsy vibes! She knows them all! She's in search for the new horizons!

Her freedom is her step into the void! She launches herself like a torch in the wind! And she doesn't expect anything! She isn't looking for shelters under the arm of a man, she doesn't fit into a single boot and she doesn't step on shadows. She's in the search of new horizons!

She's been to the circus, she's been to the Nutcrackers and she ate all the chocolates in the candy jar. Her tastes are more than exquisite, she knows every little bit from everything and all the tiny vibes of the wind makes her even stronger in her beliefs. She stands alone and she assumes her loneliness. Proud as an oak! There is nobody to conquer all her inner space and she is very much aware of it. The perfume of her body is the fragrance of life: full and reckless, stable and unsteady, with a certain inability to capture her entire being but spreading away her personal scent.

She has everything in her: a memory, a loss, a hope, a place, a flavor, a person. And she assumes it all! She thanks the time for being there for her and having made her the woman she is today. She incarnates the nowadays femme fatale. Different from the one in the past. Take example of Mata Hari back in 1917 who opened the gate to all the femmes fatales in the world. She penetrated the world of men with an extraordinary force when she was a military spy. And she could kneel every man only be her seductive power. Or, let's not forget Marlene Dietrich with her long port-cigarette and her devilish look. She could conquer them all!  

A great example that promotes even more the femme fatale can be seen in the movie A Fool There Was in 1915 where the actress Theda Bara had the major role. The Americans called her the Vamp as the term was more popular on the continent than femme fatale. The American people thought of this kind of woman as a stranger coming from Asia or Eastern Europe with a mystified power. More and more the concept has been publicized and it became like an iconic feminine figure at that time. Lauren Bacall or Ava Gardner in the 40s -50s black and white movies make the best examples in terms of femme fatale. The ancient seduction that is cold and burning, that makes every man kneel.

The concept of femme fatale goes back to the origins of humanity. Right from the first woman: Eve. She surrendered herself to temptation and changed everything around her.  Also, the Greek Goddesses had an enormous seductive power and the primary strength to see through. Cleopatra was a legend of powerful and exotic woman that had the world to her feet.

Every femme fatale has a certain craziness into her, the sick love or nothing at all, the suicide or even death. Nowadays, la femme fatale has lost this dangerous side and turned more into a more seductive force that wants everything but feels nothing. La femme fatale is difficult to discern, to elucidate; she incarnates the somber part of the woman but she's an expert in seduction. She's magnetic, she's phantasmagoric. In order to conquer her, the man has to sacrifice everything. Even so, she would never be entirely his.

She doesn't stand for anyone but herself, she has the confidence of a tiger and the moves of a feline. She knows her best and her worst. She knows where to fill in the gap or where to launch into the void. Distance is her personal approach by spurring away little particles of personal perfume. She has the charm and charisma and she uses it only when she thinks it is needed. She doesn't want to waste not a single bit from her forces. There is nobody she can say he deserves it. Every single one is damaged in his own way and she doesn't have the time to repair what it has been broken.

She is in the search of new horizons and this makes her powerful, untouchable, unique in her own way!
