Today, we celebrate what would have been Farrah Fawcett's 68th birthday! The five-time Golden Globe nominee, who passed away in 2009 from cancer, shot to stardom in her role as Jill Monroe in the hit TV series Charlie’s Angels, opposite Kate Jackson and Jaclyn Smith. During the show's first season, the iconic poster of Fawcett in a red Norma Kamali one-piece bathing suit--- she pulled it from her own closet!--- was released and has sold more than 12 million copies. From the sincerity in her smile to her perfectly feathered hair, Fawcett instantly became the girl next door. In honor of her birthday, take a look at the most memorable swimsuits ever.
