Shelley Hack and Revlon’s Charlie Introduce America to the Sexy Feminist

Before she was the other “Charlie’s Angel”, model-turned-actress Shelley Hack was the chic, independent blonde bombshell that launched Revlon’s Charlie perfume. The signature commercial, featuring an all-too-catchy tune sung by Bobby Short and a light-on-her-feet Shelley, debuted when the women’s movement was in its heyday. It went on to be remembered for pretty pitch-perfectly showcasing the modern, sexy, free-spirited, woman of the 1970s.

This is due in no small part to Shelley Hack’s embodiment of this spirit—a perfect combination of femininity and confidence, at a time when the word ‘feminist’ was starting to rise to new heights in pop culture awareness.
