(PNS reporting from MEXICO, DF) Dead Mexican feminist artist and icon Frida Kahlo has finally come to her senses and visited a cosmetologist here to clean up her act. The old Frida, with monobrow and bigote, is on the left; new shiny, happy Frida on the right:

She made her painting like that for a reason. She didn’t actually look that way, but she didn’t want to subscribe to colonial idea of beauty and she did not want her art to be portrayed in that way.

Luckily, along with the paintings there are real, actual, photographs. Not only did she rock those amazing brows, but had a big ol’ bigote as well. Colonial ideas of beauty and all that blahblahblah sure, but Sara, look at the photos!
