Top definition
A femme fatale character in movies or books. The character is a woman who, while not necessarily attractive, has a certain allure (usually this striking, exotic, overtly sexy glamour), and is usually a heartless, man-eating seductress.

The term is short for vampire, another term for a femme fatale.
In drama, the vamp is the sexual counterpoint for the naive, wholesome ingenue character.

The sultry lower voice of the mezzo-soprano is usually reserved for the vamp character in musicals or opera.

A word so commonly associated with some of these loser wannabe-goth kids that think they're vampires.

THE ORIGINAL VAMP - Theda Bara - Vamping since 1915.

A vamp is a woman who isn't always beautiful, but is fatally alluring and can lead a man to their ruin - usually insanity or death. Shortened version of "Vampire."

2. A woman that can suck you dry financially, emotionally or otherwise.
Most of you children don't know what a real vamp is - and vamping ain't easy.
