In keeping with our Spain topic; what is it exactly, that is so devastatingly attractive about flamenco?  Is it the passionate singing? The incredible guitar work?

Magnifica!

Lovely in lace…


Who can resist the allure of the yards and yards of ruffles on the bata de cola (the traditional flamenco dress)?  It is rather hard to decide which is more stunning, the dress or the woman!
