Our Photos of Frida Kahlo Model Casting Call: Jean Paul Gaultier collection @ SF DeYoung Museum

From the Blue House to the Catwalk.

Last Saturday's DeYoung Museum event attracted Bay Area Fridas from every inspiration!

It was awe-inspiring to see how Frida Kahlo's complex personalities appeared. Some contestants gave us heart-felt stories of how Frida inspired their challenging lives; 2 of them displayed their crutches. Traditional to modern styles all were represented, and all were anxiously ready for the judges.

We thank the DeYoung Museum for letting us photograph the event.

This casting call culminates at 'From the Blue House to the Catwalk' show on Friday, June 29, 6–8:45 p.m. Everyone is invited, Ahí nos vemos!

Last Saturday's casting:

The de Young looked for “Frida Kahlo” models to be part of a Jean Paul Gaultier–inspired runway fashion presentation.

We looked for models in two categories: Traditional Frida, and Frida Now, inspired by Gaultier’s fashion interpretations of the artist. If selected by the jury, you will be part of the Viva Frida! From the Blue House to the Catwalk show presented as part of our weekly Friday Nights at the de Young series on Friday, June 29, 6–8:45 p.m.

Contestants are encouraged to come ready to sing, dance, paint, or share whatever else their unique talents may be. Prizes will be awarded for the best “Frida” in both categories. This event is curated by Rene Yañez and presented in partnership with The Consulate General of Mexico in San Francisco and The Mexican Museum. Special thanks to Chloe Rose for her beautiful fashions created for this event.
