Dresses which belonged to iconic Mexican painter Frida Kahlo are pictured during a media preview of the exhibition "Smoke and Mirrors: Frida Kahlo's dresses" in Mexico City in this November 21, 2012 file photo. An ancient megalopolis built in a drained lake rimmed by mountains, Mexico City consistently flies under the radar. Despite lacking the samba-steeped allure of Rio de Janeiro or the chic intellectualism of Buenos Aires, Mexico City also feels like a city on the up, benefiting from more than a decade of progressive city administrations who cleaned up the atmosphere, legalized gay marriage, introduced a successful bike-sharing scheme and spruced up the austere historic center.
