Dress the part: Frida Kahlo

A new book promises to inspire your summer wardrobe.

Frida Khalo - Fashion as the Art of Being

Frida Kahlo: Fashion as the Art of Being
By Susana Martínez Vidal, forward by Lynn Yaeger

Long before Björk and Rihanna made the case for fashion as art, there was Frida Kahlo. The artist commanded attention with her bold brows, embroidered tunics and crown of braids, and the style she trademarked is still making waves today. This vibrant visual tribute weaves together Kahlo’s story with the runway collections, editorial shoots, movies, music and art she inspired.

Let Kahlo's appreciation for traditional patterns and eye-catching accessories shape your summer look.
