I lived in Mexico for a few months when I was studying and have had an enormous crush on the style chops (and art, and life) of Frida Kahlo since then.
Her style was unlike anything I have ever seen. So I am super excited to hear about an exhibition of her clothes, accessories and medical items, such as corsets and a prosthetic leg that she had to wear as a result of polio and a bus crash.
The exibition also includes dresses made by Rei Kawakubo and Ricardo Tisci among others, which were inspired by her.
To me, it pretty much sounds like the most perfect exhibition.
The only downside?
It is showing at the Frida Kahlo museum.
In Mexico City.
But even getting this little glimpse of her personal items is pretty incredible for me, so I will try to keep my angst inside.
Oh Tulisa, you truly are one of the worst dressed celebs I have ever laid eyes on. And I think you take pride in that. You like to be as revealing as possible and have a certain knack of making even expensive clothes look cheap.

So I was rather taken aback on seeing this dress. Below the knee? With sleeves? No cleavage? I feel as though the rug has been pulled out from under me. I just don't know what on earth is going on.
But I shan't worry about it too much because I am sure she will be back to dressing like a brothel keeper in one of her favoured lace concoctions in the blink of an eye. And normality will be restored.
Who does he think looks charming, I ask – meaning, in my shallow way, which celebrities. "Do you know who I think looks wonderful? In Bath, there is a woman who always passes by my house. She wears twinsets, and usually a tweed pleated skirt. Not terribly expensive but good quality, and she always looks just perfect. To me, that's fabulous."
