"Appearances Can Be Deceiving: The Dresses of Frida Kahlo" is an exhibition sponsored by Vogue.
It will be on view until January 31, 2014 at La Casa Azul, the painter's family home in Coyoacán.
The exhibition opens with a display of Frida Kahlo's prosthetics. The painter was dramatically injured in a bus accident as a young girl, resulting in multiple fractures and a lifelong struggle with disability.
