Farrah Fawcett, Style Icon

-------


The feathered blond hair, that smile, those tawny limbs. You know the Farrah Fawcett poster we’re talking about. Your older brother and 12 million other teenage boys across the globe had it hanging above their beds during the Charlie’s Angels star’s 1970′s heyday. Fawcett’s influence on style and fashion far outlasted the relatively brief time she spent on that iconic TV show. “Farrah hair” was a phenomenon trumped only by the Rachel ‘do of the 1990′s. And designer Phoebe Philo co-opted the actress and international sex symbol’s high-waisted light denim flares and braless look as recently as Spring 2004 at Chloé. Here, a brief tour through some of Fawcett’s most memorable looks.

    R.I.P Farrah Fawcett, I don’t know if she was a style icon. Not In Europe, but we know that Europeans and Americans have a different sence of style, is that bad NO. I will always remember her as the blond and beautiful star of Charlies Angels. May she rest in peace, despite that she died to young. She was more then a TV personality, she did a lot to this world.
