Frida Kahlo at the V&A

                  The Secrets of Frida Kahlo's Bathroom

                  The confident handwriting of Frida Kahlo's diary watches over the entrance to the display of her possessions at London's V&A in Frida Kahlo: Making Her Self Up (until November 4, 2018). It almost doesn't matter what's written in Spanish; the words themselves seduce you. There is something evocative about ink on paper concealed within the pages of a journal.

                  David Bowie as Woodblock Prints

                  David Bowie's infatuation with Japan is no secret. It began with a keen interest in the extreme make-up of Kabuki theater and continued with an interest in musician Tomoyasu Hotei and filmmaker Nagisa Oshima. And fashion followers will know about his work with fashion designer Kansai Yamamoto.

                  Suddenly fat cats are everywhere. They're hissing at the have-nots, kneading dubious tax cuts, and clawing democratic governments to their will.

                  Vivienne Westwood Revealed

                  Given Vivienne Westwood's outsized cultural relevance, it's hard to believe that 'Punk, Icon, Activist' is her first feature-length documentary. Needless to say, it will be a highlight of Sundance Film Festival, where it's slated to debut in January 2018.

                  Meet Bj?rk's Make-Up Artist

                  Precious little is known about Hungry, Bj?rk's make-up artist, other than a few morsels scattered about her social-media plate. What we know is this: She's German, studied fashion design in Berlin, interned with Vivienne Westwood in London, calls her particular brand of art "distorted drag," and fancies herself a pearlographer.

She even edges into socio-politics, alluding to gender equality, diversity, and conservancy — albeit in her own Bj?rk-ian way.
