Frida Kahlo's Birthday
It’s Frida’s Kahlo’s Birthday! Remembered for her self-portraits, pain and passion, feminists depictions, and use of bold, vibrant colours, it’s often claimed that her and Diego Rivera lived at the Chelsea Hotel.
While I’ve found no evidence in my research to support this, it is noted that they were frequent guests at the composer Virgil Thomson’s notorious soirées held in his apartment suite at the hotel. Other attendees included Salvador Dali, Igor Stravinsky, Tennessee Williams, Peggy Guggenheim, Edward Albee, and more.
While she might not be an official Chelsea Girl, I’m happy to nominate her as an honorary one! Fierce, gutsy, and extremely talented, she brought a lot of beauty to this world.
