Okay so I know this is kinda taboo but anyways.
Frida Kahlo: Not too easy on the eyes. I mean she’s got the lady-mo and the monobrow thing going on. She didn’t know where to put her blush or what shade lipstick would obviously suit her skin tone. Really, she’s a bit of a wreck. So this got me to thinking. What would have happened if her girlfriends had done the right thing and taken her to a beautician, (which clearly needed to happen)? I did a subtle re-paint over the top of her original self-portrait to “conceptualize” what it would have looked like if she had been whisked off to Beauty Works or the likes….I didn’t want to alter the integrity of the original painting too much. What do you reckon?

Neocolonialism 

uhm
p sure that if you impose yr 21st-century/white/heterocentric beauty ideal on Frida’s face, you are both “altering the integrity of the original painting” and MISSING THE POINT. her face is part of her IDENTITY.
anyway I think she was fucking gorgeous and I have a stupid huge crush on her so yr argument that she was a wreck is invalid. :)

I have seen a lot of horrible shit done in my lifetime, but this literally made me want to cry. Sorry (not sorry), but who the fuck thought this was an improvement? I also happen to share the opinion that she was so fucking beautiful (and lives today through her portraits in this vein)… and should stay that way.
