Shelley appeared on the pages of Harper's Bazaar in September of 1975 in a spread entitled "Your Evenings at Home". The spread featured fashions that could be worn when entertaining at home. Whether it's just one or a group of close friends, these fashions were recommended by the mag for their "beautiful shapes in beautiful fabrics with all the ease and comfort at-home dressing should have". They were simple, uncomplicated and stylish clothes women could relax in.

Shelley modeled a fabulous dress that was "as easy to wear as a sweater". It was a long, slim and simple velour dress in graphite-gray with undertones of violet and blue that had a collar that could be worn either as a turtleneck or hood - by renowned designer Stephen Burrows. A necklace, a ring and bangles finished her look. And with her hair brushed back, Shelley looked like one fabulously chic hostess.
