The famous red swimsuit of Farrah Fawcett will be an active display in the Smithsonian in Washington. Once a staple of teenage boys' bedrooms, is now actually a historic piece. Any parents out there should be proud of their sons for having such good taste.
WASHINGTON – The red swimsuit that helped make "Charlie's Angels" actress Farrah Fawcett an icon is going to the Smithsonian in Washington.
Fawcett's longtime companion Ryan O'Neal donated the swimsuit and other items to the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History on Wednesday. A 1976 poster of Fawcett in the dampened red swimsuit sold millions of copies.
Also donated to the Smithsonian were Fawcett's copies of scripts for the first season of "Charlie's Angels" and a 1977 Farrah Fawcett doll.
The items will be part of the museum's popular culture history collection.
Fawcett died in 2009 at the age of 62 after battling cancer.
