Emeli Sande Style

Emeli Sande has a self-portrait of artist Frida Kahlo tattooed on her left forearm. She explained her admiration of Kahlo to the Hackney Gazette: “It was the first time I had seen a woman being completely open and raw in her art, especially because they were self-portraits. She wasn’t glossing over the blemishes and you see what she went through as a woman and how strong she had to be. She gave me strength as a woman; and how she made ugly parts of herself really beautiful and very strong, that’s what inspired me.”
