What Would Frida Do?

A Guide to Living Boldly

A contemporary guide to life, love, and happiness inspired by the extraordinary artist Frida Kahlo.


Revered as much for her fierce spirit as she is for her art, Frida Kahlo stands today as a brazen symbol of daring creativity. She was a woman ahead of her time whose paintings have earned her generations of admirers around the globe. But perhaps her greatest work of art was her own life.

What Would Frida Do? explores the feminist icon's signature style, outspoken politics, and boldness in love and art, even in the face of pain and heartbreak. The book celebrates her larger than life persona as a woman who loved passionately and lived ambitiously, refusing to remain in her husband's shadow. Each chapter shares intimate stories from her life, revealing how she overcame obstacles by embracing her own ideals.In this charming read, author Arianna Davis conjures Frida's brave spirit, encouraging women to persevere, to create fearlessly, and to stand by their own truths.

As seen on CBS This Morning (featured by Gayle King in her 10/20/20 “Table Talk” segment) and the TODAY Show (one of Jasmine Guillory’s top picks for fall reading, 11/3/20).
