Femme Fatale has the allure to appeal equally to men and women. Men cannot resist the beauty and sensuality of the piece. Women find the power that woman has over a man very exciting. As the name implies, Erté presents a woman in the full blossom of her beauty. Femme Fatale portrays woman at her most erotic and at her most deadly. The temptress dances before a man who falls victim to her glittering allure. Her fatal fascination is represented as flowers. Like roses dipped in deadly poison, they render him powerless and despite his physical strength, he is as helpless as a child at her feet. All the while she exults her victory by dancing in the radiant sunlight.
