This shot of Princess Diana sitting on the diving board of the private yacht "Jonikal," owned by her boyfriend, Mohammed Al Fayed, is from the final holiday she ever took. In the summer of 1997, Diana was trying to reinvent herself, to remove herself from the public eye and become a person again.

In late July she traveled to Saint Tropez in the South of France where she spent time on Fayed's yacht and the Fayed family's 30-bedroom villa, Castle St. Therese, with her sons, William and Harry. It's clear from this photo that even when she was alone she was never really alone.

Photographers were constantly hounding her, even when she was in the middle of the ocean. There was nowhere she could go where she was safe.

There's no doubt that Farrah Fawcett is one of the most beautiful women of the 1970s, so it's not a surprise that Andy Warhol wanted to snap a Polaroid of her for his series of somewhat candid shots of famous people. At the time, the photo was a one-off lark, but as time has gone on, original paintings of the photo have become pieces of contention for Fawcett's family.

Warhol painted two portraits of Fawcett after she posed for him in September 1980, and even though Fawcett claimed that the portrait was hers when she passed away in 2009, he former partner Ryan O'Neal claimed that it was his. This wasn't a big deal until her will stated that "all" of her artwork would go to the University of Texas, but O'Neal wanted to keep the portrait, which has been appraised to be worth $18 million, for himself.

O'Neal won the painting in a trial after claiming that it was his final connection to Fawcett, saying:

I talk to [the painting], I talk to her. It’s her presence in my life and her son’s life. We lost her. It would seem a crime to lose it.

But now it seems that O'Neal no longer has compunctions about holding onto the piece.
