Charlie's Angels was to my tween years what 90210 and Melrose were to my teen years. It set the tone for my view of women and taught me that women could be strong and smart and sexy all at once. Farrah Fawcett was part of my pop cultural upbringing...she was one of the great iconic figures of that generation. Forget that she singlehandedly was responsible for creating the feathered hair trend, but she one of the great sex symbols of all time. I wanted to be her, hair and all...I wish I could find a few photos of my feathered days to show you...scary good back then, now just plain scary. She and the character she portrayed on Charlie's Angels were also powerful fashion icons...70's chic at its very best.
I felt terrible when I found out she past away and thus feel compelled to remember her via my blog. To pay tribute to her, I want to show you how her Charlie's Angels style has withstood the test of time and how it still permeates couture culture. I also hope that you will feel inspired and perhaps even empowered enough to unleash your inner Farrah, because at her core she was one strong woman, one that deserves to be emulated not just physically, but spiritually as well.
You know what I am going to write about...I mean how can I not choose Gucci, the quintessential 70's brand. The business has been built on modernizing the look of the disco era and consistently pays homage to that time. Sure the collection has also been genius with regards to powerful nods to the 60's, but lets face it, Gucci is best known for its must-have pantsuit. Perfectly tailored, super sexy, powerful...it is just as iconic as Farrah. These looks are on sale on their website, so if like me you really want to remember, then I suggest you click now. ~Nancy
