Dressing up as Frida Kahlo

193 Flares 193 Flares ×

A few weeks ago, ahead of FRIDA – Female Revolution in Dance & Art, I got “unibrowed”, moustached, red lippied and dressed up as the legend Frida Kahlo for the International Women’s Month event. Or rather, as Frida Kahlo in a selection of her self-portraits.

The photos, which are part of the ongoing exhibition, were taken by Bumi Thomas, whose philosophy is about “transcending cultural boundaries and subverting realities with abstract constructs using photography and music as her mediums of exploration.” Visit her site and while there, listen to “Free as a Bird”. You’ll love it. Or just scroll down to listen.

Our stylist was Curiosly Kat and make-up is by Mollie Balogun a.k.a. Naija Runs Girl

The other Frida is Pia Cabble, the woman whose concept and effort made the memorable night  – and  we even had a mini Frida Kahlo as you will see below.

What do you think of our Frida tribute photo shoot?
