Seeing as many of her painting were self-portraits, you could pay homage to her by penciling together your brows and wearing traditional Mexican dress; however, that's more of a costume than a reference. Here, I let her clothes influence a completely different look with a long skirt, gold accessories, bright hair flowers, and of course, a skull.
Perhaps because she was in a horrific accident that had life-long repercussions, Frida's work frequently turned to the macabre. To mimic the painting Las Dos Fridas, I chose an ombre dress that reflected the turbulent sky, spiky accessories, and of course a damaged heart necklace. I like the feminine floral print of the shoes because Frida's work was very feminine and also because the petals on the toes look like dripping blood.
Frida, who often wore a bouquet in her hair, liked to incorporate nature into her work. I used several nature references from Self-Portrait with Thorn Necklace and Hummingbird for this outfit -- a lurid-colored jungle print, fur and feather textures, twig jewelry, a bug ring and a raw quartz ring.
Here, I used desert colors of her painting as inspiration. The spiky bracelet and snake clutch were also inspired by the desert.
