Sad news today. American actress Farrah Fawcett has died of cancer. Not only was she know for her role in the detective series Charlie’s Angels (the original one, not the recent Drew Barrymore movies), but she was a major fashion inspiration also. Watching old Charlie’s Angels episodes is a great way to get introduced to seventies fashion (high waisted flared jeans, jumpsuits, tube tops, hotpants, love it!). And there was the famous “flick”, her hairstyle that was copied by millions of girls (and by Madonna, remember her hair in the “Hung Up” video?). As a tribute to Farrah, here are some old pictures of her.

She didn’t have her own perfume, but her own shampoo!
