Frida Kahlo: The style of an icon • FRANCE 24 English

FRANCE24, 23 Sep 2022
Her vibrant colours, floral hair-dos and striking jewellery have made Mexican artist Frida Kahlo's style as famous as her paintings. A new exhibition at the Galliera fashion museum in Paris is exploring the artist's identity through some of the objects stored at her famous "Casa Azul" in Mexico City. Clothes, makeup and personal correspondence give us an insight into a woman who was ahead of her time. 

Also on the programme, we visit an exhibition that explores the art of skateboarding. Plus, we speak to the new director of France's prestigious Avignon theatre festival. Portuguese actor, director and playwright Tiago Rodrigues tells us more about his new role.
