Poll: Classic Beautés Fatales

Following the tribute to the male screen legends of French classic cinema (pre-1960), here's the obligatory homage to the classic "Beautés Fatales".

The expression, easily translatable as 'fatal beauty', refers to a woman whose breathtaking looks create the kind of encounters no male protagonist can recover from, or from our viewers' perspective, inspire a mix of attraction, fascination and even sometimes, suspicion. It's not just about beauty, it's all in the eyes, the body language and a little 'je-ne-sais-quoi" in the air.

So, which of these classic female stars of French cinema, these beautés fatales, would you say is or was the most cinematically appealing?
