A 1939 photograph of Frida Kahlo is on the November cover of Vogue Mexico. Vogue Mexico used photographer Nickolas Muray’s iconic 1939 portrait of Kahlo taken in New York for its November 2012 cover to coincide with the November 22 opening of “Appearances Can Be Deceiving: The Dresses of Frida Kahlo” at the artist’s eponymous museum.

According to a Vogue Mexico, this is the first time Muray’s family granted permission for the image to be used on a fashion magazine cover. In addition, the shot was recreated with actress Salma Hayek for a Paris Vogue cover that marked the 2002 biopic “Frida.”

Inside the special collector’s edition of the magazine is an entire package devoted to
Kahlo that includes a feature on contemporary designers like Jean Paul Gaultier and Comme des Garçons’s Rei Kawakubo who have designed collections inspired by the artist.
