Not even a mediocre film can erase the allure of the great romance of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.
But despite her allure, her assiduous assault on New York produced no results.
And Barbie and Ken's allure goes beyond kitsch or nostalgia.
c.1400, from Anglo-French alurer, Old French aleurer "to attract, captivate; train a falcon to hunt," from à "to" (see ad-) + loirre "falconer's lure," from a Frankish word (see lure), perhaps influenced by French allure "gait, way of walking." Related: Allured; alluring. The noun is first attested 1540s; properly this sense is allurement.
