Uncovering Clues in Frida Kahlo’s Private Wardrobe | Collectors Weekly:
Her sunglasses are really incredible; they are so contemporary. Any of the objects displayed could be on a runway today, that’s why I think Kahlo is so relevant. She was ahead of her time, and she understood dress and fashion and used it to build her persona and her identity. She was very stylish and sophisticated. These objects show you how coquettish she was, too. But I did notice that the more she was suffering or worse she felt, the more adornment she would wear that day. She liked receiving people at home, but if she was not feeling well or if she couldn’t get out of bed, she would still get all dressed up like a doll, so beautiful. She was never going to go downstairs in pajamas.
