Type vamps into a search engine and you will get a million pages that add -IRES to that word.
I know Vamps as Silent Movie Actresses.
A vamp is an attractive, dangerously flirtatious woman. A vamp in an old movie might wear tight clothes and bright red lipstick. The noun vamp is somewhat old fashioned, implying a woman who uses her charisma and beauty to charm men into doing what she wants them to do.
Theda Bara is a perfect example.
