Frida Kahlo: About That Unibrow

Frida Kahlo’s image
on a par with Cleopatra
cultivated a statement.

A statement unibrow
the body as canvas
drew focus to her face.

Her passion
and a sense of wonder turned
pain and corsets into art.

Often portrayed as a victim,
broken and fragile
she was strong and accomplished.

Comfortable with cross-dressing
in dungarees and a cigarette she
re-established her independence.

like a natty chap in
“Self-Portrait With Cropped Hair”
she had relationships with women.

A mastermind, Kahlo delivered
red-carpet moments and referred
to herself as the great concealer.
