Shelley is probably the most famous of all the women who became Charlie perfume Girls. In fact, whenever Charlie perfume is mentioned, it is her image that immediately comes to mind. Shelley was one of the top models of the 1970s, one of the top girls in Eileen Ford's stable of models, one of the highest-paid models of the era. With her Charlie contract, she jumped to Supermodel status overnight. She and the brand gained international visibility and eventually catapulted both to iconic status. Shelley, the Charlie Girl, is undeniably one of the icons of the 1970s.
