My Farrah Fawcett Poster

The above photo My Farrah Fawcett Poster (from Shaggy Duck on Flickr) perfectly captures how an entire generation discovered Farrah Fawcett in the 70s. The fanboy in the photo above wrote “It was the 70’s and this was the moment I received MY Farrah Fawcett poster! I covered an entire wall in my room with Farrah and Charlies Angels pictures”.

In 1981 Farrah was featured in the Celebrity Cookbook, what I love about her story in the book is that she claims that she can eat anything that she likes because she burns it off with her busy schedule! Found via Miss Retro Modern.

Lastly Farrah’s trademark was of course her hair and famous feathered haircut from the 70s. Here’s an ad for Farrah Fawcett Shampoo which is from the December 1978 issue of Seventeen magazine. Found via sugarpie honeybunch.
