Farrah Fawcett Red Bathing Suit Goes To Smithsonian. Farrah Fawcett’s famous red bathing suit is now an official piece at the Smithsonian museum. It was the same one she worn thirty-five years ago in her popular poster that became iconic in the 1970s.
The red bathing suit Farrah Fawcett wore in an iconic 1976 poster, along with other items from her career, will be presented Wednesday to the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History in Washington by her long-time partner Ryan O’Neal.
“I don’t think that Farrah realized the impact that that poster would have on the world,” O’Neal said, his voice breaking, during the presentation on Wednesday. “She was one of a kind.”
He struggled to get through his short statement and mentioned that Wednesday, February 2, would have been Fawcett’s 64th birthday. “What a nice way to celebrate an extraordinary occasion,” he said.
O’Neal’s daughter, Tatum, and the couple’s son, Redmond, were also in attendance.
According to the museum’s website, “the donation will include the red swimsuit, an original copy of the swimsuit poster, a leather-bound book of Fawcett’s personal copies of scripts for the first season of ‘Charlie’s Angels,’ a Fawcett swimsuit jigsaw puzzle, a “Farrah Phenomenon” 1976 edition of TV Guide, a ‘Charlie’s Angels’ 1976 edition of Time magazine, an original 1977 Farrah Fawcett doll and a ‘Farrah’s Glamour Center’ hairstyling toy.”
