The Mystic Krewe of Femme Fatale, founded in 2013, parades Uptown on the first Sunday of Mardi Gras season. Femme Fatale was the first krewe founded by African American women for African women, although all women are welcome. Their colors are candy apple red, black and white and their signature throw is a designer lady’s compact, symbolizing a constant inward and outward reflection.
Cherchez La Femme, a 40-member all-female dance krewe comprised of members belonging exclusively to Femme Fatale, performs choreographed dance routines in the parade to old school and new school R&B favorites. Along with the Femme Fatale parade, the women have appeared in PJ Morton's New Orleans Girl video, the Krewe of Boo Parade, the Krewe of Jingle Parade and a Pelican's home game. The group’s costumes suggest the mystique of a femme fatale and can play on any alter ego.
