American Collections 1

Shelley Hack with Cheryl Tiegs, Chris Royer, Karen Bjornson, Halston, 
Anne Holbrook and Shelley Smith in a 1977 spread for Harper's Bazaar

Shelley appeared on the pages of Harper's Bazaar's Feb 1977 issue. She was featured in the 8-page spread called "The American Collections: The Best of the Best at Every Price". The spread featured fashions ranging from the affordable to the ostentatious - all by four leading American designers of the era. The designers featured (and pictured) in the spread were Halston, Geoffrey Beene, Bill Blass and Calvin Klein. In the spread featuring Halston, Shelley modeled a silky-print two-piece shirtdress - by Halston of course. The dress was of blue and white printed imported polyester and could be buttoned "as much or as little as you like". And Shelley looked fabulous her Halston original.
