Layering '77 D

a closeup of Shelley from the spread for Harper's Bazaar, 1977

Shelley appeared on many spreads throughout Harper's Bazaar's September 1977 issue. In the spread called "The New Ways of Layering", she and fellow model Linda Tonge showed readers how to layer furs, jackets, vests and coats in order to achieve the luxurious look of the season. Earth tones accented with soft blues and rose, a mix of lengths and textures was what it was all about.

Shelley wore The Fox Jacket, a sleeveless jacket of Magellan fox by Bill Blass for Maximillian, New York, over a silk shirt and  gathered skirt topped with a cardigan vest and a tweed jacket - all by Blasssport. Fancy button earrings, unusual bracelets and knitted gloves finished her look. And Shelley looked sensational.
