Christmas Countdown 2

Shelley in the 1980 Christmas version of the Charlie Perfume ad
MERRY CHRISTMAS, WORLD - Shelley appeared in Christmas versions of the Charlie perfume ad from 1978 up until 1981. The ad featured her striding that Charlie Girl stride alongside the season's most popular character, Santa Claus. Of course, as THE Charlie Girl, Shelley was dressed to the most glamorous hilt - as the season always demands. In the 1980 version, she wore an evening pants-ensemble by Sam Originals consisting of a white Victorian-inspired ruffled blouse - with a matching black satin ribbon around the neck - and a pair of crisp white evening slacks. A fabulous pair of open-toed evening heels and a set of festive earrings finished her look. The ad came out in 1980 an is one of the most glamorous versions of the Charlie ads ever. And Shelley was downright gorgeous in it.
