MARCH: FEMME FATALE


If you type Femme Fatale into wiki you'll find a definition along the lines of: "mysterious and seductive woman whose charms ensnare her lovers, often leading them into compromising, dangerous, and deadly situations. She is an archetype of literature and art. Her ability to entrance and hypnotise her victim with a spell was in the earliest stories seen as being literally supernatural; hence, the femme fatale today is still often described as having a power akin to an enchantress, seductress, vampire, witch, or demon, having power over men."

This month we're channelling that power (and our inner Cher's) and embracing our very own femme fatale. Not in a victimising way, but by using our individual charm and talent to entrance and enchant. Whether that's in the work place, at the gym, on the dance floor, in the supermarket or wherever you find yourself in the next month, take that inner confidence and let it shine. Maybe I've just been watching too much Ru Paul's Drag race but it's so sexy to see people embracing themselves and their individuality - as Ru Paul says "If you can't love yourself, how the hell you gonna love anyone else".

We're celebrating all women this month starting with Mardi Gras and Cher live in Sydney, then with International Women's Day 2018 happening on March 8. Whether you're born a woman, identify as one or just like to dress in drag, we're here to celebrate all. We've got a killer line up of fabulous female musicians on show in our monthly mix and featuring a number of them throughout the month. We have our monthly muse, Adwoa (who we cannot get enough of) and our brand of the month is Sandy Liang, the kick ass newcomer killing it in the fashion world. Check in on all our monthly must attend events in our cultural section and remember....
