Inspiring Angels

Jaclyn Smith, Cheryl Ladd and Shelley Hack
Charlie's Angels, circa 1979

This 2017, Shelley along with Charlie's Angels co-stars Jaclyn Smith and Cheryl Ladd appeared on the pages of Femina, a Swedish-language mag. It mentioned how much fashion now is inspired by the fashion the Angels wore back in the day. What it says roughly translates as:

Then & Now 

How to Get the Style
Put on jeans
Accentuate your waist with a belt
Filled-in Shirt Is A Must
We are inspired by:
Jaclyn Smith, Cheryl Ladd and Shelley Hack
STYLE: The Free 70s

EVERYONE LOVED THE THREE (AWESOME!) women who starred in Charlie's Angels, the TV series that took the world by storm during the second half of the 1970s. The original Angels were Farrah Fawcett-Majors, Kate Jackson and Jaclyn Smith; but the two first two were soon replaced by Cheryl Ladd and Shelley Hack respectively.

The "Angels" were among the first female action stars during the era as they had to catch the bad guys in their roles as unconventional, cool and adventurous private eyes. And they were also known for their elephant pants, distinct hairstyles and high heels, which became passe for a while. But today, we're again inspired by their high-waisted feminine tops.
