Farrah Fawcett’s iconic red swimsuit to become a museum pieceFebruary 3rd, 2011 - 3:27 pm ICT by ANI
London, Feb 3 (ANI): Farrah Fawcett’s legendary red swimsuit is reportedly being donated to Washington’s Smithsonian Museum.
Farrah was the sex symbol of her time and the most recognizable image of the 1970s, reports the BBC.
She had worn the swimsuit in a popular poolside poster - shot by photographer Bruce McBroom - in 1976, which apparently sold millions of copies.
At the time Fawcett was aged 29 and was said to have liked wearing the one-piece because it covered a scar she got as a child.
The late star’s partner Ryan O’Neal is also handing over copies of scripts for the first season of Charlie’s Angels and a 1977 Fawcett doll.
Other items O’Neal will also donate to the US institution include a Fawcett swimsuit jigsaw puzzle, a special 1976 edition of TV Guide featuring the actress, and a Farrah Glamour Centre hairstyling toy.
The screen star died in 2009 at the age of 62. She had been suffering from cancer. (ANI)
