a publicity photo of Shelley from 1978
Shelley became a Supermodel in 1976 when she began endorsing Charlie by Revlon. The brand and her image became so synonymous, she became known worldwide as THE Charlie Girl. Having made it in the modeling industry, she set her sights on Hollywood. Her first foray into feature films was via the Academy Award winning movie Annie Hall - where she had a scene with Woody Allen himself. Shelley's Hollywood dream was to become just like her fellow Connecticut-bred idol Katherine Hepburn.
