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.

Turn to black and gold for a winning combo.

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.

Time to Forgive Donald Trump and Thank Him

@americaferrera / Instagram

After Donald Trump called Mexican and Latino immigrants rapists and criminals, his comments were met with outrage. In three short weeks, his repeated insults led to something he probably didn’t expect: rallying Latinos around a common cause. The move has led actors, musicians and mitú’s own president and co-founder, Beatriz Acevedo, to say, “Thank you for bringing us together.”

Sincerely, Beatriz Acevedo

President and Co-Founder of mitú  

It’s empowering to see how this event has inspired this vast group of Latinos to speak up and raise their voices. I read a brilliant piece by Latina actress and activist America Ferrera where she thanked Donald Trump for making our jobs easier, by energizing the Latino community to head out to the polls this upcoming election. And yes, Latinos can swing an election.

Like Ms. Ferrera, I personally want to thank Mr. Trump as well, for encouraging us to raise our voices and express our collective opinions surrounding his unfortunate comments. Even in the midst of my own outrage and frustration, I felt proud seeing so many examples of extraordinary Latinos, in all walks of life making America better every day.

For me professionally, as a Mexican immigrant who arrived here 20 years ago on an investor visa, with a goal to create new businesses for me and other like-minded entrepreneurial Latinos, it reminded me of the responsibility I have to help eradicate these ridiculous stereotypes in our country, and as a mother of 10 year old Mexican American twins, this was a valuable teaching moment that allowed me to show them why racism, ignorance, intolerance and hatred towards any human being are not the values this country was built on, and ones in which we should never stand for.

Sincerely, America Ferrera

Actor & Activist 

Dear Donald,

You’ve said some pretty offensive things about Latino immigrants recently, and I think they’re worth addressing. Because, you know, this is the United States of America, where I have a right to speak up even if I’m not a billionaire. Isn’t that awesome?

Anyway, I heard what you said about the kind of people you think Latino immigrants are — people with problems, who bring drugs, crime and rape to America. While your comments are incredibly ignorant and racist, I don’t want to spend my time chastising you. I’ll leave that to your business partners like Univision and NBC, who have the power to scold you where it hurts. Instead, I’m writing to say thank you!

You see, what you just did with your straight talk was send more Latino voters to the polls than several registration rallies combined! Thank you for that.

Dear Donald Trump,

I would like to take this time to THANK YOU for your recent comments on  your campaign trail.   When it is all said and done, you will go down in history as a  man who sparked a massive tidal wave of change and forced a people to rise up.  A  man who made a tough decision of using Mexican immigrants as a scapegoat in  order to bring some facts to the light.

The fact that we currently don’t show up to the polls as we should.  The fact  that our numbers are strong yet our voice is not.   The fact that brands, networks  and presidential hopefuls constantly flirt with our demographic with an insatiable predatory appetite.   These culture vultures are on a mission to pillage riches  greater than any conquistador ever has.  The fact that we are too busy working for  the American Dream that we blindly give our hard earned paychecks to companies  that truly don’t care about us.  Thanks to you we will be on high alert and more  critical of those who court us.  Thank You Señor Trump.

Sincerely, Paulina Vega

I find Mr. Trump’s comments unjust and hurtful. As a Colombian and as Miss Universe, I want to show my support and validate the sentiments of the Latin community.

The Miss Universe Organization works independently from its owners. For the past 64 years, they have created partnerships with great charity groups and have helped thousands of communities. Their legacy of uniting countries from around the world has been inspiring to many. If the Miss Universe Organization shared any anti-Latin sentiments or any type of racial biases, I wouldn’t be in this position today.

I strongly believe that dividing and categorizing humankind only holds it back. Acknowledging and embracing the differences that exist across humanity is the first step in real and substantial development. We must strive together in order to improve the common good.
