Shelley was and is THE ultimate Charlie Girl there ever was. Her image as THE Charlie Girl has been the benchmark for all the Charlie girls that followed; and to an extent, the benchmark for the modern, liberated woman as well. The confidence and class she projected - on both the print ads and the commercials - catapulted the brand to no.1 in the world. And since 1976, Shelley had and has  become an inspiration to many around the world. Truly, an icon of an era. Heck, even Oprah Winfrey wanted to be a Charlie Girl because of Shelley.
