Frida was a unique style icon with her monobrow which she enhanced with makeup, red lips and flowers in her hair.
Even with lifelong ill health and adversity she remained extraordinarily stylish in her image.
Frida was beset by health problems throughout her life from contracting Polio as a child to injuries sustained in a car accident which affected her to her early death.
However she remained stoic and stylish all through her pain…
Even after a leg amputation Frida remained a true to her own unique personal style, customising her prosthetic leg with a stylish decorated boot.
Frida’s mono-brow and facial hair were not the beauty norms even at that time.
She used an eyebrow pencil in Ebony to accentuate her brows and Revlon “everything’s rosy” lipstick and red nail varnish.
Some of Frida Kahlo’s dresses. What can I say but how fabulous!

Chatting on BBC Radio Berkshire about the Royal Enclosure at Royal Ascot racing 2017 style and fashion rules. Having been the BBC TV fashion and style reporter from Royal Ascot races myself a few years ago and also a regular Royal Ascot Royal Enclosure attendee for many years I have watched how the fashion style rules and regulations have evolved and often now ignored
So now Royal Ascot authority has re-issued their style criteria to help maintain fashion and style standards. This year the rules include allowing a jumpsuit which must however be full length.
The last time anything as dramatic as this happened was in the ’70’s when trouser suits were allowed for the first time ever.
Please click on the link below to hear me on BBC Radio on the seemingly divisive topic of those Amanda Wakeley £900 leather trousers as worn by Theresa May for the Sunday Times Style photoshoot.
Are leather trousers suitable for a Prime Minister’s wardrobe?
What sort of message is she sending out with her personal style choices?

What do your clothes say about you? What messages do they send out?
When you are in the public eye, is what you wear important?
