Farrah Fawcett

EMILY: Oh, yes, and there was a tee-shirt with a Farrah Fawcett face.
LORELAI: A hero to many who aspire to the perfect feather fluff.

Farrah Fawcett (1947-2009) was an American model and actress. Having already appeared in commercials and TV shows, she became famous in 1976 after posing for a poster wearing a red one-piece bathing suit. That same year, she got her breakout role as Jill Munroe on crime drama series Charlie’s Angels, becoming an international star. Her hairstyle was a phenomenon in itself, with the “Farrah-flip” a sought-after look well into the 1980s (during Lorelai’s teenage years).

A link with other references in this scene is that Farrah Fawcett played Barbara Hutton in a 1987 TV movie.
