Farrah Fawcett’s Swimsuit to the Smithsonian

The swimsuit worn by actress Farrah Fawcett in her famous 1976 poster is being donated to the Smithsonian Institute by her former husband, Ryan O’Neal.

The suit will join Jim Henson‘s Kermit the Frog and Michael Jackson‘s hat in the Smithsonian’s exhibit on National Treasures of Pop Culture.
