Clothes, jewelry, makeup, and even a prosthetic leg belonging to Frida Kahlo will arrive at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London starting in June at the exhibition Frida Kahlo: Making Herself Up.

Frida Kahlo's intimate belongings were sealed in her house for more than 50 years after her death, thus this will be the first time they will have been seen outside Mexico.

"This exhibition will present an extraordinary collection of personal artefacts and clothing belonging to the iconic Mexican artist Frida Kahlo." the V&A museum wrote.

A Guatemalan cotton coat, beautiful embroidered satin skirt, a selection of her cosmetics, her prosthetic leg, along with several photographs are among the highlights of this unique exhibition.

Frida Kahlo: Making Herself Up will be at the V&A from 16 June to 4 November.
