Farrah Fawcett x two..



Couldn't resist a reflection shot of Farrah Fawcett (1947-2009) at the Rise of Sneaker Culture exhibition. Farrah Fawcett was the 'it' girl of the 70's, who doesn't remember the 'red swimsuit poster'. Asked why he thought the poster was the best selling poster of all time the photographer said "C'mon, who could resist the beautiful, all-American girl looking directly at you with a dazzling smile and a red suit that covered a lot but revealed a little.” Young women in the spotlight these days would do well to take some FF tips, cover up, leave something to the imagination! Gosh that made me sound so old :) Happy Saturday, take care and stay safe..

  1. The red swimsuit poster adorned many a teen male's room back in the day.

  2. If I'm not mistaken, that poster was found in my nephew's room when he was a teenager. She really was a beautiful young woman.

  3. She certainly was an icon. And gone relatively young!

  4. Farrah Fawcett was one of my favorite actresses for awhile, many years ago. But her life ended rather tragically. I felt so sorry for her when she made an appearance on Letterman's show obviously high or drunk and made a fool of herself. I think basically she was a nice person but it's really difficult to handle the money and notoriety of stardom.

  6. Her hair was copied by many but never duplicated. Gone too soon! Great post, PDP.

  7. Very popular woman in the 70s. Never cared for charlie's angels but that helped, along with the poster, to make her an icon. It was sad she died young.

  9. I agree. Don't give so much away. Tease and titillate and let imaginations work......hard.

  14. I don't remember seeing Charlie´s Angels on Swedish TV back in the 1970s but I did enjoy The Cannonball Run movie. She really was an American icon.

  21. I remember the poster--but the hair even more. I used to spend at least an hour every morning making my baby fine, stick straight hair look lime that...until Collin was born and I no longer had the time!
