To me, Frida Kahlo represents not only an amazing artist and strong personality, but also a beauty icon. Yes, I said it. Beauty icon. That woman with massive monobrow and wirey hair dressed in 10 tons heavy rainbow dresses. And because you still don’t believe and surely the raised eyebrow thing is still going on, I will now tell you, why this woman changed the way I look at fashion and beauty.
Since last summer, everyone seems to be obsessed with maxi skirts! Frida knew that they were super comfy already in 1930s! Plus 2012 spring collections seems to be full of vivid colours, such as grass green, hot pink and royal blue. Frida was pretty much pro at that too (and not only on canvas)! Not even commenting on her red lip obsession. She made me realize that bright colours for both make-up and fashion are wearable and can look nice when sensibly paired up, and that they brighten up your day – and that is worth it, isn’t it?
Frida was very much known for her massive trending monobrow. And look now – if it was an intention or just a lack of handy tweezers in Frida’s case, it is back! This made me realize that filling in my brows and making them look a bit more on a bold side is not bad at all, and it actually gives your look a bit of edge! Thin brows are so out, that they wouldn’t think about them even back at 1930s, so why do girls try to get them now? *sigh*
Someone (e.g.my boyfriend, erm) may say that loads of rings, necklaces and massive earrings may look cheap. Well, I don’t think so. I love my shiny little things (magpie alert!) and I go with Frida’s flow and slap on all sorts at once. And believe me or not, it does look nice when you keep the slappin-on within sensible limits. Don’t be afraid to go for bold earrings and massive necklace, but kee the neckline simple, Frida would say. And chuck some flowers on the top of it, they can do no harm!
