Frieda Kahlo born July 6, 1907  died July 14- 1954. One of my heroes is is Frieda Kahlo. This is a woman who overcame pain a life of pain to become one of the most famous women artists of all times. Married to Diego Riveria, their open marriage and affairs were no secret. Both were brilliant and flamboyant. Frieda Kahlo lived a short life and we would like to honor her birth and her eyewear.

She did wear cat-eye glasses as one of the only options available at the time. This is here actual eyewear.

Back in the day Frieda was known for her monobrow, in fact it is rumored that she actually darkened them along with her mustache. A free spirit, apparently she didn’t care what others thought. The monobrow eyewear by Gentle Monster truly captures the essence of Frida Khalo. This style is appropriately called Frida Khalo.
