Looks That Last 1

Shelley in a spread for Redbook magazine, Feb 1984

Shelley appeared in a spread for Redbook magazine's Feb 1984 issue called "Looks That Last". It featured the chemise or the sack dress - which was making a big comeback in the mid-'80s. Of course, it had wider shoulders and a looser fit, the popular silhouette at the time. Shelley was making a comeback as well. After being praised for her work on stage and on the film The King of Comedy after her stint on Charlie's Angels, she had a busy year in 1983. She did Elizabeth Diggs' Close Ties with Kim Darby. And she worked with some Hollywood greats. She did Trackdown: Finding the Goodbar Killer with George Segal and Found Money/It's Only Money with Sid Caesar and Dick Van Dyke. She also starred in the TV series (although short-lived) Cutter to Houston with future star Alec Baldwin. She was on a roll.
