Goodbye. / by Kamie Kahlo

In the summer of 1976 at Fawcett's home in Bel Air, California, Bruce McBroom would take THE photo that would adorn every basement wall for the next 3 decades. Who hasn't seen or identified their hairselves with this iconic poster of Farrah? And, didn't we all feel the pressure to spend hours, no! years training our hair to do what only she could do? Personally, I can remember secretly playing one the impossibly well-coiffed trio from CHARLIE'S ANGELS. But, although enormously important to her career, the poster and the Spelling show is not this woman's legend. She exposed herself time and again and let us see the beauty beneath the smile and hair as last seen in her now possibly Emmy nominated documentary about her battle with cancer. We will miss this California beauty. "After a long and brave battle with cancer, our beloved Farrah has passed away. Although this is an extremely difficult time for her family and friends, we take comfort in the beautiful times that we shared with Farrah over the years and the knowledge that her life brought joy to so many people around the world," her longtime partner Ryan O'Neal said in a statement.
