In honor of Farrah Fawcett, who died on June 25, 2009, after a courageous and very public 3-year battle with cancer. We remember her in pictures.
Forget Jennifer Aniston. The woman with the most famous hair in history was Farrah Fawcett, whose winged "Farrah Hair" was mimicked the world over in the 1970s and 1980s. Farrah Fawcett came a long way from her Corpus Christi, Texas, roots. She started out acting in commercials (she was best-known as the Wella Balsam girl). From here, her popularity soared after she was named to the cast of Charlie's Angels and the poster of her in a red bathing suit hit the stands, selling more than 12 million copies -- a record that still holds today.

People will say that a Farrah statue is too similar to the Selena statue, so why not give Farrah a unique honor? Name a street for her in the downtown. Name a beach after her. Paint her famous poster 3 stories tall on the side of a downtown building.
