Clothing More Real

I find the photos of Frida Kahlo’s clothing, casts & corsets, and make up to be shocking — in the best way. Her paintings are personal and vibrant, but these items are intimate. The dirt and stains and even the little drips inside the nail polish bottles — a real woman in pain lived in these objects. I could gaze at them over and over for hours.

Thanks to The Guardian for the article. “What Frida wore: the artist’s wardrobe locked up for 50 years – in pictures.”
