Sophisticated in '76

Shelley, sophisticated in an ad for Krizia in 1976

Shelley was a picture of sophistication in an ad for Krizia back in 1976. Krizia is an Italian fashion label founded by Mariuccia Mandelli in 1950. The brand's product line includes ladies' clothing, handbags, footwear and perfume. Shelley's ad appeared on the pages of Italian Vogue in March of 1976. The easy, breezy floral ensemble she wore was in juxtaposition with the stylish turban around her hair, the Mediterranean sandals on her feet and the cigarette in her hand. Add to that the "old world" setting she was in and the crystal ashtray in the floor, Shelley was one sophisticated image indeed.
