Farrah Fawcett Red Swimsuit

The red swimsuit that helped Farrah Fawcett become a 1970s sex symbol is heading to Smithsonian in Washington, D.C.

Fawcett’s companion Ryan O’Neal donated the swimsuit along with several items to the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History today. A 1976 poster of the Charlie’s Angels starlet in that same swimsuit sold like hotcakes back in the ’70s.

Aside from the swimsuit, O’Neal also gave the Smithsonian copies of Fawcett’s scripts for the first season of Charlie’s Angels and a 1977 Farrah Fawcett doll.

The items will be used as part of the museum’s “pop culture” history collection.

Farrah Fawcett died in 2009 at the age of 62 after a long battle with cancer.
