Shelley appeared on many ads for Butterick in the 1970s. In 1971, she appeared in a Butterick ad featuring ski fashions. The sew-and-ski suggestions were the things to sew before going skiing. Shelley wore Butterick pattern 6353, a duffle coat, in a fabric that was knit on the outside and pile on the inside or vise-versa. It was perfect for those cold winter skiing adventure. Shelly looked fab in it.

2009 Collectors Show

Shelley with TV personality Daniel Gomez Rinaldi in 2009

Shelley's public appearances have been rare and sporadic, that's why fans are always ecstatic whenever she decides to go out to meet them. One of those rare occasions was the Hollywood Collectors Show in 2009. It was a 2-day affair held in Burbank, California, on July of that year. It was also where Shelley, for the time, met fellow Charlie's Angel Tanya Roberts, so the it was quite a historic event. With the new Charlie's Angels movie coming out this November, will the original TOS Angels finally reunite for one historic photo shoot?

For that season, Dina thought in terms of pretty, soft, lightly curled hair - with a perfect Cut as foundation, of course. Her innovative tools and unique scissors were also featured. And with Dina's "sculpting", Shelley never looked so good.
