Frida Kahlo has always sort of been a hero of mine - she was a quirky, colorful, strong person who didn't let the traditions of her era, or a lifetime of painful medical problems, stop her from being herself, loudly and proudly. She maintained an aggressive, strong sense of self until the end... when she was very sick, she had a major art gallery event. Her doctor told her that under no circumstances was she allowed to leave her bed. She got around this problem by having her entire bed, with herself still tucked in, delivered to the art gallery in time for her opening.Her sense of style was incredible and immediately recognizable. I've been wanting to do a Frida shoot for a long time, and I finally found my perfect Frida in Hailey, a sweet, gorgeous senior from Nederland. I only jabbed her scalp with about a million bobby pins before we got the look down - I think she pulls off Frida perfectly!
Hailey - you were SO amazing! Thanks for such an amazing shoot! :)
