Farrah Fawcett's Iconic Swimsuit

Posted: Updated:

Farrah Fawcett was the Charlie's Angel that smiled and stole the TV screen in the 70s. Magazines shot her for editorials and many covers. Her look became the girl next door style of the decade.

One day she was shopping in my store and asked to meet me. I saw her incredible beauty, and if I compare the beauties through the years I've met, Farrah was truly up in the top register.

Her famous swimsuit poster became iconic, and just recently her family donated the swimsuit to the Smithsonian.

Farrah could have worn anything and that poster would still have been a success. How lucky for me she had my swimsuit in her bag.
