Vibrant, Pop-Art Portraits That Imagine Frida Kahlo As A Modern Fashion Icon

Frida Kahlo's striking self-portraits have become iconic over time. Her look is immediately recognizable, even when reproduced as a high-fashion photo editorial.

And in honour of the iconic artist's 100th birthday, Mexico City-based photographer Fernando Rodriguez shot this striking fashion editorial for Flesh Magazine. Bold colours and opulent textures combine to recreate the style of her famous portraits.

This is the modern Frida, captured in a pop-art style that vibrates with electric energy. She wears her hair in traditional braids with flowers, yet she also wears futuristic plastics and tinsel.

Rodriguez's photos are both conceptual and traditional, fusing the past and present in stylish scenes of carefully curated moments.
