THE Charlie Girl

that included the brand's makeup and nail care line

Shelley first became famous for being THE Charlie Girl, the unforgettable Supermodel from those iconic Revlon Charlie ads and commercials in the 1970s. A slew of models came before her, but it was Shelley's image that catapulted the brand to worldwide recognition. The image of Shelley strutting around the world -  "gorgeous sexy and young", free-spirited independent and confident, fabulous single and happy - sparked a nerve in women all over. Every woman wanted to be that free and that fabulous. Shelley THE Charlie Girl is an icon in itself.
