Farrah Fawcett posterThe red one-piece worn by the late Farrah Fawcett in her 1976 poster, arguably the world's most famous swimsuit, has been donated to the Smithsonian.

Photographer Bruce McBroom captured the iconic image of a smiling, swimsuit-wearing Farrah positing against a striped blanket. A whopping 12 million posters were sold, and it’s likely that even more girls around the world copied her famous beach blonde locks.

Farrah Fawcett's nephew, Greg Walls, her longtime love Ryan O'Neal, and his daughter Tatum, were there for the donation. Along with the swimsuit, the family donated an original copy of the poster and other pieces of memorabilia including Farrah's Charlie's Angels script book and a swimsuit jigsaw puzzle.

The Farrah Fawcett artifacts will become part of the American museum's Division of Culture and the Arts. You can see them on display this summer.
