Shelley appeared on the poster for an exhibit honoring the late legendary Harper's Bazaar editor Anthony Mazzola. Shelley appeared frequently on the fash mag in the mid-70s during Mazzola's tenure, in pictures taken by some of the most popular photographers of the era. The pic used for the poster appeared in the Feb 1977 edition of the magazine, which featured the latest designs from the best American designers then. Shelley was photographed with Halston and five other models. It was taken by Bill King.

Shelley starred in her third TV series Jack and Mike in 1986. The series came right after Moonlighting; and the two were promoted as a pair. Jack and Mike was about a married couple whose careers were getting in the way of their marriage.

Dressing for a Special Mood

Shelley in a spread for Seventeen magazine 
in March of 1971
Shelley appeared not only on the cover of Seventeen magazine's March 1971 issue but also on the main spread featured in the issue. Entitled "500 Boys Say," the spread explained to readers what boys wanted girls to look and be like at the time (so retro.) And according to the survey, 64.4 percent of boys wanted girls to dress for a special mood.
Shelley modeled a peasant inspired outfit consisting of a sheer blouse with flower  and zigzag details and matching skirt by Campus Casuals. Her floral belt is by High Hatter. Love the cute hairdo.
Shelley modeled a floral smock and pants outfit which were great for "balmy nights" or "sunny days." A belt sash and lace up shoes finished her look. She wore a Princess Leia hairdo six year too early.

Featured in 1985

Shelley appeared on the "What People are Wearing Overseas" page in The Australian Women's Weekly magazine back in April of 1985. The picture of her was taken in January of that year when she attended the premiere of The Falcon and the Snowman at the DGA Theatre in West Hollywood. She attended the affair with her future husband, Director Harry Winer. She paired her sort of Navajo-inspired blouse with pants and up-to-the-minute boots.

Sharing Her Secrets

Shelley appeared on the October 1978 issue of Family Circle magazine in an article entitled "TV's Top Models Share Their Beauty Secrets." Along with Shelley, Erin Grey, Cheryl Tiegs, Mariette Hartley and Barbara Hale shared their secrets for staying beautiful. All the women were models who appeared in numerous commercials on TV. And it's interesting to note that Shelley not only appeared in those famous Charlie commercials but also appeared in commercials for Remington, Alberto-Culver, Avon Jewelry, JCPenney, Ponds and many more. Let's hope we see these other ads she did on YouTube soon.

Jap Poster Girl

When Shelley became a Charlie's Angel, pictures of her began appearing in fan magazine all over the world, including Japan. Roadshow and Screen ran pictures and photos of her solo and with her fellow Charlie's Angels. In one poster, she posed for the cameras during the filming of her first CA episode "Love Boat Angels."
