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) were Halston, Geoffrey Beene, Bill Blass and Calvin Klein.

Shelley and Geoffrey Beene from the spread

In the spread featuring Geoffrey Beene, Shelley modeled a white cotton fishnet top trimmed in navy over a pair of navy blue cotton shorts, cut with the fullness of a little skirt. It was one of the "newest and coolest" looks for that summer and Shelley rocked her Geoffrey Beene originals.

Shelley also modeled a tiny, wrapped tennis dress that was very,very pretty and very advantageous to any woman wearing it. A pair of tennis shoes, a matching visor and sports bag finished her look. Shelley made sporty chic in her Geoffrey Beene original.
