Mademoiselle Shelley 1978 Part 2

a writeup on Shelley from Mademoiselle magazine in 1978

Shelley had been a part-time model when she was a teenager and still in school. But in the early '70s, after her schooling, she started modeling full-time. She was represented by the Ford Models agency and became one of their top earning girls. When she bagged an exclusive contract for Revlon Charlie, she catapulted to Supermodel and became famous the world over.

Shelley was featured in the Starstyle section of Mademoiselle in June 1978. She was a Superstar Model and was known as THE Charlie Girl. The writeup continued with Shelley's endeavors to transition from Supermodel to actress. She had appeared in the Academy Award winning film Annie Hall just two years prior and was currently appearing on the big screen in If Ever I See You Again. The writeup then tackled her beauty regimen, her family life, her health regimen and finally her style. Shelley was ready for a big-time Hollywood career; and her biggest break would come a year after.
