Gone but not forgotten. It's hard to believe that Farrah Fawcett passed from cancer three years ago today. Farrah's most famous photo shoot is her low cut red swimsuit with the Indian blanket.
Farrah's iconic red swimsuit was donated to the Smithsonian. Farrah's red swimsuit is already part of history for the countless purchasers of the 1976 poster in which it famously appeared & now the item will be preserved for future generations to see in one of America's most iconic institutions.
Ryan O'Neal (Farrah's longtime boyfriend) donated the swimsuit, along with other Fawcett memorabilia to Washington D.C.'s Smithsonian Museum of American History. Ryan stated: "It's an honor to see Farrah's famous red bathing suit donated to the Smithsonian Institution, celebrating her place in pop culture. Farrah is looking down on us today flashing that big smile that we all loved."
According to the Smithsonian's website the donation includes the red swimsuit, an original copy of the swimsuit poster, a leather bound book of Fawcett's personal copies of scripts for the first season of Charlie's Angels, a Fawcett swimsuit jigsaw puzzle, a Farrah Phenomenon 1976 edition of TV Guide, a Charlie's Angels 1976 edition of Time magazine, an original 1977 Farrah Fawcett doll & Farrah's Glamour Center hairstyling toy.
