Charlie '78

In this Charlie perfume ad from 1978,
Shelley was merely smirking, but nevertheless striding.
But smiling or not, she was gorgeous.

Shelley's first taste of super-stardom came when she became THE Charlie Girl in 1976. The commercial she made for the brand was an instant hit and soon a slew of print ads with her striding her Charlie stride were released. She became one of the most recognizable faces around the world - and she was photographed striding around the world. In a 1978 version of the ad, she was photographed in Paris, at the Pont Alexandre III Bridge, in a fabulous white ensemble and chic scarf. She was also wearing Sheer Berry Red Extra Extra Shine Lipstick by Revlon Charlie. She was at her Supermodel best.
