CHARLIE’S ANGELS star Farrah Fawcett has been immortalised as a Barbie doll, inspired by her famous sell-out red swimsuit poster of 1977. The doll of the actress, who died in 2009 after a long battle with cancer, will help raise money for the Farrah Fawcett Foundation.

‘We’re all very excited about it, it’s a great tribute to her and part of the proceeds go to the foundation to benefit cancer research and help people,” Fawcett’s long-time friend Alana Stewart told Fox News. “Her aim was really to help in cutting-edge research and to help people that are actually struggling with cancer now, so that’s really the mission of the foundation. It’s really wonderful for her memory and for her legacy and for her fans.”

The doll – which went on sale in July priced $34.95 – has already sold out on several sites, the Daily Mail reports The first Fawcett doll went on sale in 1977, the year the famous poster was released, wearing a svelte white jumpsuit.
