We attended a show of photographs of Frida Kahlo at the Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach recently.
Although we adore Frida Kahlo we were disappointed in the content and presentation of the show –
many very small black and white photos unimaginatively hung on plain white walls.
Frida was about color and pattern so we do not think it suited her.
However, Frida in any form is worth seeing and the the photos were an interesting insight into her life.
Frida is one of my personal style mentors and I love that she said “Dress everyday like it is a fiesta!”
She wore the peasant costumes and jewelry of her native Mexico with such flair
and definitely had her own unique spin on it.
I meet women all the time who love Frida like we do – she is a true style icon and great artist.
