Angels in Spandex

Shelley with Jaclyn Smith and Cheryl Ladd on the cover of Family Scene in 1980

Shelley became a Charlie's Angel in 1979, taking over Kate Jackson's empty slot in the team; and publicity stills of her with Jaclyn Smith and Cheryl Ladd were circulated around the world. One pictorial had the new Angel team in skin-tight spandex pants - the latest fashion craze. They were so tight, it was scandalous. Some magazines sanitized the pics by airbrushing some parts; but hey, no one was complaining. Now, the pic is a classic, and one of the sexiest photos from the era.
