Farrah Fawcett's Iconic Swimsuit Donated to Smithsonian

Farrah Fawcett's Iconic Swimsuit Donated to Smithsonian

A handful of Farrah Fawcett‘s personal items, including the red swimsuit from her iconic 1976 poster, will now be housed at Smithsonian‘s National Museum of American History.

In a special ceremony on Tuesday (February 2), the late actress’s birthday, actor Ryan O’Neal and Farrah‘s nephew, Greg Walls, donated the swimsuit along with the original copy of the poster, her personal Charlie’s Angels script book, an original 1977 Farrah Fawcett doll, and a “Farrah Phenomenon” 1976 edition of TV Guide.

“It’s an honor to see Farrah’s famous red bathing suit donated to the Smithsonian Institution, celebrating her place in pop culture,” said Ryan. “The swimsuit is exactly where it belongs, and I know Farrah is looking down on us today flashing that big smile that we all loved.”

Also included in the collection, which goes on display later this summer in the museum’s Division of Culture and the Arts: a Charlie’s Angels 1976 edition of Time, a “Farrah‘s Glamour Center” hairstyling doll, and a Farrah Fawcett swimsuit jigsaw puzzle.
