10 Trends Frida Kahlo Started

Frida Kahlo left her print in the art industry, but her creativity continues inspiring celebrities’ fashion sense. Celebs have taken more than a few queues from Frida’s always hip style and so should you.

A pop of color never hurts.

With bright greens and fuchsia covering her canvas, Belinda drew straight Frida’s go-to color palette for her video for “En la obscuridad.”

Who would’ve imagined Frida to inspire sexy cutout swimwear such as the one Eiza González rocked in Capri?

When in doubt, tie it out.

Kourtney Kardashian is thought to be a risk-taker for breaking the mold and wearing menswear, but guess what? Frida was never afraid of breaking gender roles when it came to fashion.

Before La Marisoul was wearing the combo, even before Wiz Khalifa was rapping about the color combo, Frida had already been there, done that.

Frida must’ve been chuckling while Kate Upton flaunted her ruffled Dolce & Gabbana gown at the 2014 Met Gala because the dark ruffles, headdress and off-the-shoulder combo is something Frida knew all too well.

Every queen needs to rock a braided crown.

It was the gasp heard around the world when Iggy Azalea walked the 2015 Grammys carpet because everyone knew exactly when she had drawn her inspiration from – the hair goddess herself, Frida.

And of course, the chic floral crown.

Think hipsters at Coachella started this trend? Ha! Think again.

The flat, center hair part paired dark lips that everyone is into today is old news. You can thank Frida for all this and might as well address her as a hair icon, don’t you think?

Frida’s signature hair and wardrobe has inspired Halloween costumes, but we can totally see Beyoncé rocking this on any given day.

Bold brows catch eyes everywhere.

Salma Hayek outgrew her natural brows – and mini unibrow – to play the part of Frida in the movie Frida and since then, there’s been a pandemic of full brows popping up everywhere.

AOC’s Fans Took Part In An Amazing Meme Campaign To Celebrate Her Bday And It Will Humble You

AOC’s Fans Took Part In An Amazing Meme Campaign To Celebrate Her Bday And It Will Humble You

Talk about a take back.

Yesterday, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez celebrated her 31st birthday, and to pay tribute to her, some of her biggest fans used the congresswoman’s signature looks and iconic words. The result was a mass of Tik Tok and Twitter makeup tutorials set to a mashup of Kendrick Lamar’s 2017 track “Humble.” AOC’s recent spack down of Representative Ted Yoho, who allegedly called the congresswoman a “crazy,” “disgusting” “f*cking b*tch” also made an appearance.

In an ode to AOC’s iconic takedown of Representative Ted Yoho this past July, users donned amazing lip colors and AOC’s finest words.

The AOC Birthday celebration meme saw users do their makeup and style their hair while mouthing a speech AOC gave this past July. Some of the videos featured facts about AOC and her accomplishments in office.

“I am here because I have to show my parents that I am their daughter and that they did not raise me to accept abuse from men,” the user’s mouth while the audio clip of AOC plays.

Olympic medalist Laurie Hernandez even took part in the trend.

Earlier this summer, Rep. AOC admonished Rep. Ted Yoho on the House floor after he called her a “f*cking b*tch.”

According to reports, the confrontation occurred when the two members of Congress were passing each other on the steps of the U.S. Capitol. Rep. Yoho allegedly confronted AOC and accused her of being “disgusting.” This occurred after she made comments that New York’s spike in crime had been caused by the current COVID-19 pandemic.

Rep. AOC rebuked Yoho for his lack of apology at the time on the house floor soon after.

“It is cultural. It is a culture of lack of impunity, of accepting violence and violent language against women, an entire structure of power that supports that,” AOC said before adding “Mr. Yoho mentioned that he has a wife and two daughters – I am two years younger than Mr. Yoho’s youngest daughter. I am someone’s daughter, too. My father, thankfully, is not alive to see how Mr. Yoho treated his daughter. My mother got to see Mr. Yoho’s disrespect.”

Cardi B fans know the rapper most for her hit tunes but when it comes to her extravagant claws she also has a cult following.

The “WAP” rapper has long made the effort to complete just about every one of her killer red carpet and Instagram looks with ultra-long, ultra-fierce nail looks that could give just about anyone a run for their money. So it’s no wonder that when it came to celebrating her 28th birthday this past weekend that the big-time rapper queen did it with a bang and a nail look that could shred any other manicure to pieces.

As part of her birthday celebrations over the weekend, Cardi B unveiled some pretty big news about her upcoming collaboration with Reebok.

In a post shared with her Instagram account, Cardi appeared in an ultra-blue laundry room setting with a nail look created by artist Jenny Bui to match. Cardi B’s manicure was done in an array of blues and white with the Reebok shoe logo emblazoned on each nail.

“I’m kicking off my birthday weekend by announcing I am officially dropping my first ever Reebok x Cardi Footwear Collection on 11/13!!” she wrote in the post. “As my birthday gift to my loyal fans, I’m dropping limited pairs TONIGHT at MIDNIGHT EST on Reebok.com. #ReebokxCardiB.”

Cardi B’s new Reebok collection is set to debut Nov. 13

The star’s shoe collab with Reebok will be available for purchase on November 14 on reebok.com. The shoes, which were designed by Cardi herself, are “laced with a whole lotta attitude.” They’re also surprisingly low-key.

“Nobody does it bigger than Cardi B—so you know we had to go all the way colossal for her birthday. The new Club C Cardi is designed in collaboration with Cardi herself, the conductor of all things luxe. And the attitude’s in the details. It’s snatched to perfection with a stacked sole and juuust the right amount of that razor-sharp Cardi edge… Cardi B always brings the heat,” Rebook’s description of the shoe says. “She brings it from the beats to the streets in these signature Club C shoes for women. They take design cues from high fashion, streetwear and Cardi’s personality to create a stand-out style. High shine patent leather and an exaggerated height represent her place in the industry. A see-through midsole and outsole symbolizes Cardi’s realness and openness.”

The shoes comes in chalk, matte gold, and core black in colors.

The Grammy Award-winning artist revealed that her new line of Reebok sneakers will be $100 a pop. Cardi signed a deal with the brand two years ago in November 2018. Fashion collabs are hardly new for her, of course. The mother of one had collaborated in the past with brands like Balenciaga, Steve Madden, Tom Ford, and Fashion Nova.
