Farrah Fawcett Remembered
American actress and style icon Farrah Fawcett died recently after an ongoing battle with cancer. We at Honeys Lingerie want to highlight this amazing woman’s talents and achievements and just give you a little insight into her incredible life.
She will of course be remembered most famously for her role as Jill Munroe in the TV series Charlie’s Angel, playing the part of a private investigator for the infamous Charlie! Although she only played the part for one year, everyone of a certain age was glued to their TV screens once a week, while she kicked butt and karate chopped her way to stardom.
She was also famous for her love life, marrying Six Million Dollar Man star Lee Majors in 1973 and then getting engaged to longstanding partner Ryan O’Neal in 2001, whom she was due to marry this year.
Having shot to stardom after just a year as an ‘Angel’, Fawcett played many roles, achieving high accolades including a Golden Globe nomination for her part in the film Extremities in 1986.
With her infamous blonde hair and gorgeous body, Fawcett resisted appearing naked in her TV and film roles, but caused a major stir when she decided to pose nude for Playboy magazine in 1995, making it the best selling issue of the 90’s selling more than 4million copies worldwide.
Clearly one of the style and beauty icons of our time, Farrah Fawcett is also famous for a poster of her in a Baywatch style, bright red swimsuit. First published in Life magazine in 1976, it is the best-selling pin-up poster of all time, with more than 12 million copies sold.
For this and many, many more reasons, we salute you Farrah Fawcett, for inspiring us to flick our hair, to be more lady-like, to take up martial arts and to embrace life for as long as we are allowed to live it.
Rest in Peace – 2nd February 1947 – 25th June 2009
