Viva Frida!

I was browing the archives over at Blogue when I spotted a beautifully done photo shoot inspired by one of my artistic idols, Frida Khalo. Taking a unique spin on her work, Living Proof Magazine decided to recreate some of her most popular pieces with the help of two high-fashion models (including Top Model alum Jaslene Gonzalez), and contemporary pieces of streetwear. Designers such as Claw Money, Hellz Bellz, and Triple 5 Soul are featured in the layout, which honors the spirit of Frida's work in the vivid coloring and intense attention to replication. The stylization of the photography allows the images to look less like editorial spreads, and more like recreations of Frida's exquisite painted imagery.
