Frida Kahlo look-alikes at­tempt to break record

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

With uni­brows and flow­ers in their hair, more than 1,000 peo­ple came to a Dal­las mu­seum dressed as Frida Kahlo as part of an at­tempt to set a record. The Dal­las Mu­seum of Art says more than 5,000 peo­ple at­tended the cel­e­bra­tion Thurs­day night mark­ing the 110th birth­day of the artist. The mu­seum, which part­nered with the Latino Cen­ter for Lead­er­ship De­vel­op­ment for the at­tempt, said ev­i­dence will be sub­mit­ted to Guin­ness World Records next week and the re­view process will take up to 12 weeks.

Par­tic­i­pants were asked to cre­ate a uni­brow, put flow­ers in their hair, wear a red or pink shawl and a flower-printed dress. The mu­seum is cur­rently fea­tur­ing an ex­hi­bi­tion called "Mex­ico 1900-1950: Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, Jose Cle­mente Orozco, and the Avant-Garde." — AP
