I wish I could go through her diary.

Frida Kahlo has been one of the most inspiring women for me, in every aspect possible. Fascinating person.

I do not know if this is taking the thread into a wrong direction, but this corset by La Perla, inspired by Kahlo and called the Kahlo corset or something in the lines of that, is quite beautiful. Not maybe in that picture, but it was gorgeous when featured in French Vogue this year, if I'd only remember which issue.

Would it be ok to post her self-portraits in this thread, since many of them are fashion wise very interesting?

She's a big inspiration fashion-wise at the moment for me, and I think pretty much all she wore could be worn today, but as modernized versions.

Yes, she was in the cover Vogue Paris, I don't know the year she appeared in it though. I think the picture in post #69 is the photograph that was on the cover.
