Summer 1975 Catalog

Shelley in a spread for Sears Catalog for Summer 1975

Shelley appeared in many spreads throughout Sears Catalog for Summer 1975. In the spread that featured summer tops and shorts, she modeled just that - summer pullover style T-shirts with a crew neckline, short sleeves and square bottom over pairs of pull-on style shorts in windowpane checks that had elasticized waistlines. She modeled various color combos of both items. She looked fresh and ready for those summer months of 1975.

At the 2010 Megashow

Shelley at the Super Megashow & Comic Fest in 2010

Shelley made a rare appearance at the Super Megashow & Comic Fest in Fairfield, New Jersey back in July of 2010. For three days - July  9, 10 and 11 - she met and chatted with her East Coast fans who were so excited to finally meet Charlie's most reclusive Angel. Let's hope she makes another public appearance real soon, her fans really, really miss seeing her. And let's also hope she agrees to an ultimate Charlie's Angels reunion/sit-down interview with Kate Jackson, Jaclyn Smith, Cheryl Ladd and Tanya Roberts. Oh, that would be heaven.

Be Long By Day

Shelley appeared in a spread on Simplicity Fashion News in March of 1974. The spread was called "Be Long By Day" and it featured what was then predicted by experts as the successor to jeans - long skirts. They could be worn with drawstring or smock tops or neat bellhop jackets. Shelley modeled Simplicity Pattern 5982, an A-shaped long skirt that could also be shortened to knee-length if preferred. She wore it with Simplicity Pattern 5802, a shirt with forward shoulder seams and an ascot tie. A pair of matching sandals, a belt and a straw hat finished her look. Shelley looked summer ready.

Shelley's second foray into series TV was via Cutter to Houston in 1983. She starred as Dr. Beth Gilbert, an ambitious surgeon working in the small town of Cutter who wanted to do heart surgery in a big city hospital in Houston, Texas. Her costars were Jim Metzler as Dr. Andy Fenton, a GP who grew up in Cutter and was glad to be home; and Alec Baldwin as Dr. Hal Wexler, a ladies man internist on probation in Cutter for writing unnecessary prescriptions. The series had a short run, but was aired in Germany in 1988 as Die Texas Klinik (The Texas Clinic) when Alec Baldwin was beginning to make a name for himself.

Furs For Evening C

Shelley in a spread for Harper's Bazaar, Nov 1979

Shelley appeared on the pages of Harper's Bazaar's November 1977 issue. In the spread called "Fabulous Furs for Evening", which featured that year's newest and most sensational shawls, jackets and full-length fur coats, she modeled furs that made women feel pretty, pampered and wrapped-in-luxury. She modeled a second All-Out Silver Fox coat. It came with the then new look of mixed pattern and texture. It was a "narrow-cut natural silver fox coat" with "a tuxedo front and cuffs of natural Black Cross black and white mink turned to the horizontal" by Revillon. Shelley wore it over a gray cashmere dress by Judith Berkowitz for Opening Line. Shelley looked fab and more.
