Frida on White Bench, New York (1939) by Nickolas Muray via ArtBlart.
When first introduced to Frida Kahlo, I can’t say what I fell for first — her vibrant paintings or her equally vibrant style. Full of color and life, Frida’s wardrobe was a palette of punchy pink, bold blue, and fiery orange and red. To mark what would be her 105th birthday today, we’re celebrating Frida’s fabulous style.
Along with layers of silks, scarves, and long skirts, Frida’s unique ensembles often incorporated elements of her cultural heritage, including pre-Columbian jewelry and Tehuantepec dresses. With flowers and ribbons almost always accompanying her signature braided hairstyle, the artist draped herself in dramatic expressions of personal style. In contrast to the vulnerability and pain that was often expressed through her artwork, Kahlo’s personal style exuded self-confidence and strength. Even in her more somber, monochrome looks, there were pops of bright pigment.
