With her striking looks and unique dress sense, Frida Kahlo is not only one of the most influential artists of her generation but also a unique style icon, as seen here in our most loved post of the week on AnOther Loves as chosen by Trevor De Cotta. Influenced by Mexican culture both its vibrant colours and symbolism Kahlo frequently referenced it in her work and also her dress, which was considered offbeat and unconventional for the time. During her heyday in the s and 40s the majority of Mexican women preferred less traditional and more modern attire. As a result of the polio, which left one of her legs much thinner than the other, Kahlo would also try to cover them up with long, layered, flowing and traditional silhouettes which then became her style signature. Going against trends, Kahlo chose to keep her brows thick and unruly unlike the heavily plucked Hollywood-style of the time. A distinct trademark of the artist, Kahlo often exaggerated them in her many paintings 55 out of her paintings ever made were self-portraits. Wearing her long black hair in a way deemed unfashionable, Kahlo would centre-part and braid it into a tight bun and accessorise it with headpieces and flowers usually from her native country.

I paint my own reality. Frida used art as a diary; she used brush and paint instead of a pen and jotted down her feelings, her anguish, her memories, her sense of identity in a similar way that Anais Nin did in her diaries, and Emily Dickinson and Sylvia Plath did in their poems. I see her paintings as poetic scenes, verses in vibrant colours, and although they may seem surreal, they are always sincere and woven with depths of her feelings. One was the trolley, and the other was Diego. Diego was by far the worst. The illness helped to create a strong bond with her father Guillermo who was also of poor health.

Christian imagery, especially the theatrically bloody martyrdoms that hang in Mexican churches, pervades Frida's iconography. Her house in Coyoacan displays a particularly gruesome Road to Calvary, in which the overemphasis on Christ's wounds seizes the spectator on the most primitive physical level. This bloodiness and self-mortification hark back to preconquest times, when the Aztecs tore out human hearts and punctured their own skins to ensure life's continuance. But it was Spanish Catholicism that brought to Mexico the depiction of pain in veristic and human terms, creating images so real and so frightening that the Indians could not help but be awestruck and, of course, converted. Borrowing the rhetoric of Catholicism, Frida used the same combination of pain and realism to attract devotees to her cause.
