Throwback Thursday Tribute
Known for her golden feathered style locks, big smile and sun-kissed skin, this Throwback Thursday tribute is celebrating the Texas born beauty… Farrah Fawcett.
Farrah became an international success from her iconic red swimsuit poster.This was the beginning of becoming a household name. She starred as private investigator named Jill Munroe in the first season of the television series Charlie’s Angels. And this is where her name became one to remember.
Although the icon poster with Farrah in the red swimsuit sold over 12 million units, she repeatedly resisted requests for nudity throughout her career. Then at age 48, she decided to pose for the one and only Playboy nude. She’s posed for Playboy previously but with no nudity until 48.
As Charlie’s flirty and fun Angel, women all over wanted to become more like her. Although known for her beauty, Farrah didn’t stick to roles that embodied this. She took on challenging roles and allowed her talent to shine even brighter than her beauty.
Farrah Fawcett has won numoreous awards and in 1996, Fawcett was ranked No. 26 on TV Guide’s “50 Greatest TV Stars of All Time” list. She earned her first Emmy from the role in The Burning Bed which was the highest rated television movie that season.
This 1970’s icon wore swimsuits better than anyone during that time. Check out some of my favorites below:
Although Farrah lost the battle to Anal Cancer in 2009 , her legacy will live on forever. Who could ever forget the girl that made swimsuits sexy, natural hair envious and a big smile infectious. She was and will always be a beauty icon to remember.
