Self Portrait in a Velvet Dress: The Fashion of Frida Kahlo - Carlos Phillips Olmedo, Denise Rosenzweig, Teresa Del Conde, Marta Turok, Magdalena Rosenzweig, Denise Rosensweig, Graciela Iturbide, Pablo Aguinaco I admit I was never that into Frida Kahlo but she did have great taste in clothes. The photography in this book is rich and tactile, and the photographs of the clothes are often set beside an older photograph of Kahlo wearing the piece. If the body is an enormous, walking wound, she really knew how to bandage it.
