For 50 years, the colourful wardrobe and personal belongings of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo were hidden away in a bathroom. Her husband, muralist Diego Riviera, stored them after her death from pneumonia in 1954 at their Mexico City home, "The Blue House", stipulating that the room stay sealed until 15 years after his death. Rivera died in 1957 but the room remained unopened until 2004 when the Frida Kahlo Museum, housed in the couple's old home, began to catalogue its contents and invited Ishiuchi Miyako to take photographs of the more than 300 items. Those photographs are now on display in an exhibition in London, showing Kahlo's corsets, shoes, sunglasses as well as clothing she used to hide her disfigurement following polio and a devastating bus accident.

By Michael Roddy CANNES, France (Reuters) - Hungarian director Laszlo Nemes has created a stir at the Cannes film festival with his wrenching "Son of Saul", portraying the work of the Jewish "sonderkommando" labourers who were forced to do some of the Nazis' dirty work in death camps. In a movie at times almost too intense to watch, Nemes and his cast show the "sonderkommando" teams who were used by the Nazis to convince newly arrived inmates at Auschwitz to strip off their clothes and enter the gas chambers -- on the pretence that they should move quickly or their soup would get cold. The sonderkommando had to scrub out the chambers after each use and remove the corpses, which the Nazis referred to as "pieces", to the ovens for cremation. Nemes, 38, whose first feature film has been given the unusual distinction of being entered in competition for the festival's main Palme d'Or prize, said he was inspired to make Son of Saul by the discovery after the war that the Jewish labourers had hidden written descriptions of what they had been forced to do in secret locations around Auschwitz.

Blues legend B.B. King, who took his music from rural juke joints to the mainstream and inspired a generation of guitarists from Eric Clapton to Stevie Ray Vaughan, has died in Las Vegas. King, inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986, had said in May he was in hospice care at his home after being hospitalized in April with dehydration related to diabetes. "The blues has lost its king, and America has lost a legend," President Barack Obama said in a statement, recalling how he sang "Sweet Home Chicago" with King at a White House blues concert three years ago. Born on a Mississippi plantation to sharecropper parents, he outlived his post-World War Two blues peers - Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Jimmy Reed, Lightnin' Hopkins and John Lee Hooker - to see the rough music born in the cotton fields of the segregated South reach a new audience.

The designer, who admitted she did not know much about Rihanna when she received the call from the Grammy Award winner, said the 25-kg (55-pound) outfit was designed to be difficult to wear to reflect the responsibilities and challenges of an empress.
