Shelley modeled soft knits for the 1972 JCPenney fall and winter catalog. Her soft sweater knit style was "a blend featuring lamb's wool and angora rabbit" and "imported from Hong Kong." Shelley's young and fresh look complemented her up-to-the-minute outfit.

Shelley attended a White House dinner in honor of the soon-to-be-married Prince Charles in May of 1981. With a guest list of only 30, the dinner did away with strict protocol and had the prince arrive before the guests that included Cary Grant, Aurdey Hepburn, Alfred and Betsy Bloomingdale, Diana Vreeland and Bobby Short, who also provided the entertainment for the evening.
According to the prince's biographer, Shelley was the only guest the prince may have objected to. "Every story ever written about his girlfriends always has been headlined "Charlie's Angels.'" Shelley's Charlie's Angel status didn't help in that respect but, nevertheless, she attended the affair. She was escorted by Mr. Short, her "co-star" in her 1st Charlie perfume commercial.

Shelley's Charlie Girl persona was featured in the Autumn Winter 2010 issue of Elle Collections, UK. Shelley as the Charlie Girl was described as "The working girl, bright eyes, bouncy hair, big smile, sexy trousers. It's all about go-with-the-flow everyday glamour. Live the 1970s fantasy." The Charlie Girl was the ultimate '70s chick and two of Shelley's Charlie ads appeared on the magazine. "Kinda Wow," don't you think?

Recently, a friend of mine was able to purchase a bottle of Revlon Charlie White and was pleasantly surprised with her purchase. She loved the scent and likened it to Aspen For Women. Powder-fresh and clean, Charlie White is a scent that has stood the test of time.
Fragrantica.com (http://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/Revlon/Charlie-White-3147.html) describes it as: "Charlie White by Revlon is a Floral Green fragrance for women. Charlie White was launched in 1994. The fragrance features violet, peach, jasmine, lily-of-the-valley, watermelon and rose."
Charlie White may have been launched 12 years after Shelley's tenure as THE Charlie Girl, but her image lingers with every Charlie variant that comes out. As the quintessential Charlie Girl, Shelley's gorgeous, sexy-young image is forever ingrained in everyone's psyche.

Shelley's image appeared on a European (the text is in German) package for doll clothes (Linda Clothes) from the early 1970s. The image on the package is the same image that was used for the 1971 Hot Pants cologne ad. A similar image of Shelley appeared on the pages of Seventeen magazine in April of 1971, but instead of a lemon, she had an apple in her hand and instead of an apple, she had a flower on her chest.

Shelley helped out a boy traumatized by horror films by showing the kid how horror movies were made. During the filming of The Stepfather in 1986, she showed the young lad that when she was horrified and screaming at the camera, she was really just looking at the "grip in the corner eating a hero sandwich" behind it.
