Our love to revered Mexican folk singer Chavela Vargas, pictured above kissing director Pedro Almodovar, who passed away last night in Mexico City at the age of 93. In her youth, she dressed as a man, smoked cigars, drank heavily, carried a gun and was known for her characteristic red jorongo, which she still wore in performances. She was even rumored to have once carried on a romantic relationship with artist Frida Kahlo.
