It seems that Frida’s love of style and fashion started at a young age. In a photograph taken by her father Guillermo Kahlo when she was roughly 19, Frida wore a black satin bell sleeve dress with embroidery detail. So classy and classic for such a young girl (although it could have been thoroughly modern at the time). This photograph was taken after her bus accident and perhaps it was with the support of her family that she held on to beauty and still looked after herself. This dress would be at home in my wardrobe – I would proudly wear this dress today. It seems that the little black dress (LBD) has never and will never go out of style ♥
