Peek Inside Frida Kahlo’s Secret Wardrobe, Hidden Away For 50 Years.

When you look at Frida Kahlos' photos and paintings, you'll notice a recurring theme.

Mexican artist, Frida Kahlo's fashion sense is a lot like herself. It's colorful, complex, and filled with passion. Just looking at some of the things she wore tends to explain where she got her inspiration for her paintings. But when Frida passed away in 1954, her husband, Diego Rivera, sealed a wardrobe with her clothes and other belongings in a bathroom in their home in Mexico City. He also left instructions that the wardrobe had to remain hidden until 15 years after his death. Unfortunately, Rivera died in 1957 and the wardrobe remained locked for 47 years. Then, in 2004, this proverbial treasure trove was unlocked, which gave us a better glimpse at who Frida Kahlos was.


There are flowers on her hair, and even in some of the backgrounds like the back of this wall. This is probably because, like herself, flowers are full of colors, liveliness, and beauty.
