Frida Kahlo not only challenged fashion norms but she also experimented with gender roles in fashion. At the age of 19, in 1927, she was photographed with her family wearing a suit. She slicked back her hair in an attempt to look more mannish in her three-piece suit. She dressed in men’s clothing in other photographs too and even painted herself as a man in 1940 in Self-Portrait with Cropped Hair. She was so ahead of her time and her creativity leeched into every aspect of her life… art, fashion, her home and her amazing career ♥
