Viva Cover Girl

Shelley's pic for the cover of Viva's May 1978 issue

Shelley appeared on the cover of Viva, The International Magazine For Women back in May of 1978. Other luminaries to grace its cover were Barbara Carrera, Bianca Jagger, Margaux Hemingway and Christie Brinkley The magazine was a companion piece to the men's adult mag Penthouse. Initially, it was bent on exploring female sexuality. It featured erotic stories, beautiful pics containing male frontal nudity as well as articles that catered to women. But by 1978, it became more of a fashion mag with gorgeous high fashion spreads. The magazine was discontinued and released its last issue in December of 1978. Despite cancellation, Viva remains one of the most beautifully-photographed magazines ever published.
