Farrah Fawcetts Famous Red Swimsuit is now on Display at the Smithsonian


Charlies most famous "Angel" was laid to rest only 2 years ago but thanks to her long time love and children her memory will live on forever.  Ryan O'Neil, Farrah's boyfriend of 30 years, donated her famous red swimsuit and other iconic memorabilia to the Smithsonian yesterday on what would have been her 64th birthday.

Farrah Fawcett was considered the face of the 70's and was one of the biggest sex symbols of this generation.  Her glowing smile and bubbly personality made her loved and adored by both men and women around the world.  People who knew Farrah talked about her kindness and selflessness and her unconditional love for her friends and family.

Farrah stared in 19 films, appeared in more than 25 TV shows, and stared in 20 made for TV movies.  She was nominated for numerous Golden Globes Awards and an Emmy for "Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series" for The Guardian.  And although she never posed fully nude she did do two spreads in Playboy semi-nude.  The poster in which she wore the red one piece is the best selling poster of all time, and has sold more than 12 million copies, no other poster comes close.

Farrah will be remembered by most for her work on Charlies Angels and of course, for her little red one piece swimsuit that is still to this day, truly sexy and iconic and represents a time when sexy didn't mean exposing it all.  Farrah was the girl next door and a truly unique and beautiful person inside and out and had something that could never be faked, she was one of a kind.

These items will be on display at the Smithsonian's  American History Museum  in Washington, DC as part of the "pop culture" exhibit.
