There is a dominant yet misguided notion that a woman can’t become a femme fatale, that it’s something you’re either born with or not. Today, we are on a mission to shatter that myth and prove that with slight alterations in looks, demeanor and a shift in the state of mind, any and every woman can achieve this elusive quality. It’s not about size, shape, age – it’s about the vibe you exude. Therefore, we are here to give a little nudge, encouragement and guidance should you wish to undergo this amazing transformation and unleash the mysterious goddess within.
Dressing the part
It’s true that to achieve this quality the importance is in the state of mind, but the right clothes are the first step towards getting you into that mindset; once you’re in a stunning outfit you’ll start thinking of yourself as one. The question is – what constitutes that attire?
The answer lies in dark shades, sexy, and retro clothes that emphasize all the right curves and hug your body in a way that is seductive without being vulgar. The garments every true femme fatale must have in her wardrobe arsenal are a bold red dress that hugs the body and shows off those collar bones, a black silk cocktail dress, black high-rise hip-hugging jeans and a fur (faux fur) coat. High heels are mandatory; they are the glue that holds this signature look together. Pearls will definitely not hurt as they add a touch of refinement. Top things off with your Holy Grail red lipstick shade. Start with these signature pieces and then build your wardrobe accordingly, making sure you have suitable clothes for everyday life that still retain that subtle femme fatale vibe.
Scent of a woman
Having a signature scent is paramount to your image. You want to be remembered, and even when you leave a room people will know you were there. It shouldn’t be anything too fruity or girly; it should give off a sexy and seductive scent instead. Try something like sandalwood or lavender that will make men remember you everywhere you go.
The air of mystery
Think of Monica Bellucci, Beyoncé, Kylie Minogue, Eva Longoria and Charlize Theron. Some of these women are curvy and bodacious, others are known as pocket Venuses, and Charlize is the epitome of an Amazonian woman. They’re also of different ages, so what’s the shared quality that makes them all ever so seductive, alluring, and irresistible?
Well first off, it’s the look in their eyes. You’ll notice that these women are always rocking that smoldering serious look that could at any given moment turn into a mysterious smile that leaves you wondering what’s on their mind. Another thing they have in common is an air of mystery – these women never give too much information. You will rarely find them on the pages of tabloids or find interviews that give you full insight into their private lives. Just like these Hollywood and music industry divas, us mere mortals can exercise these same behaviors. Never express eagerness, smile not with a grin but a mysterious smirk, and give a profound but vague glare that doesn’t reveal your thoughts.
Don’t concern yourself with pleasing others; always march to the beat of your own drum and let others please you. Never be overly enthusiastic; be in the state that is between mild amusement and boredom. Most importantly, don’t be needy; you’re not the one who wants something, you’re the wanted someone.
Intelligent is the new sexy
All the looks and walks in this world won’t cut it if you don’t have the brains to back them up. Being well-educated is something that will set you apart. The biggest mistake you can make is to dumb yourself down in order to make someone else feel smarter. Flaunt your knowledge and don’t be afraid of challenging the people around you; call them out when they’re wrong and back your opinions with great arguments. Intelligence is by far the sexiest trait you can possess.
