A beautiful, seductive, and usually evil female character in drama and literature. She is usually shown as a cruel, man-eating seductress. (Straight) men fall victim to her beauty and are eventually brought to ruin by her. The femme fatale is often a secret agent and/or a spy.

Another word for femme fatale is vamp; due to the fact that the femme fatale is often a sexual vampire, the term "vamp" stuck when introduced by the silent movies.

The femme fatale is usually played by a strong mezzo-soprano in opera and musical theater.
Femme fatales show up often in film noir, James Bond stories, and murder mysteries.

They are often much stronger and more cunning characters than their foils; the often inept damsel in distress and the sweet, fawn-eyed, but naive ingenue.

A seductive, intelligent, witty and classy female assassin who goes predominantly against male targets who are lured into following her because she acts like a cock tease, but quickly meet their deaths when they least suspect it.

A beautiful and seductive woman with a very charming and usually unique or mysterious personality. Men become very interested in her and become distracted and fascinated by her charming, attractive qualities. She then leads men into negative or unpleasant situations, where the victim highly regrets ever getting involved with her. Sometimes the situation will turn dangerous or even deadly, depending on the level of manipulation she has over the victim. Most of the time she will gain complete control over the victim by seducing him or engaging in some sort sexual relations with him.
She is such a femme fatale. She uses her seductive attitude and beauty to manipulate men. She seems so sweet on the outside, but she is very rotten and twisted on the inside.
