About the Cover

We descended on the lovely Royal Palms Resort & Spa for our Frida Kahlo-inspired shoot. The hacienda-style backdrop for our photos, resplendent with color and architectural detail, captured the spirit of the late Mexican artist and activist, whose personal style breathed power and strength. With the embellished gown, bright floral headwear and plenty of dramatic jewelry, the look for our cover pays homage to not only Frida the artist, but Frida the fashion icon, a reminder that inspiration can come from the present or the past.
