City Girl in Red Lipstick – Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo 1I always felt a connection with Frida Kahlo, because we were both born with uni-brows. However I over tweezed and since have been in eyebrow rehab, but that’s another story.

I love Frida’s work and have several retablos of her paintings, but my favorite is the one of Diego Rivera that shows him holding his two loves in both his hands. frida-kahlo-look-alike-contest-16I often visit this painting at the San Francisco Museum of modern art and stare at it for what seems like an eternity.

I’ve read biographies and seen movies and always come away impressed.

She celebrated her heritage, culture and always stayed true to herself. I am thinking that she started the “selfie” trend, with her various self portraits.


She remains one of Mexico’s most celebrated treasures and guess what? She wore red lipstick.
