Farrah Fawcett: Tribute and Biography

Bella Donna: Farrah Fawcett

Sad news from Los Angeles today: Farrah Fawcett died this morning after a battle with cancer. She was 62. An icon since she shot to stardom in Charlie's Angels, she made a lasting impression on pop culture. Her famous swimsuit poster sold between five million and 12 million copies, depending on who you ask — and then there's her signature feathered flip, a hairstyle that seemed everywhere in the '70s and made a comeback this year.

Before becoming a television star, Fawcett appeared in a string of commercials, most of which played off her perky demeanor and megawatt smile. (Check her "flippy hair" ad as well as this sexy spot.) She also turned her fame into a money-making endeavor, launching Farrah-branded shampoo, wigs, and — no joke — a plumbing gadget called Farrah's Faucet. She is survived by her longtime partner, Ryan O'Neal, and their son, Redmond O'Neal. There's no doubt the world will miss this icon, both today and in the future. Goodnight, Angel.
