This week's Fashion and Film Friday will cover a few of my favorite film noir flicks. Film Noir movies are dark dramas usually centered around crime and mystery. Classic Film Noir movies came out in the 40's and 50's. Our lovely femme fatale character came from the film noir genre.

There a lots of excellent examples out there and many are available through Netflix. Do share your favorite title in a comment below. These film noir classics will whet your appetite for dark dramas and they're all fantastic examples of femme fatale fashions.
