The Beauty of Retrospect: Sheila Johnson Week, Part Five

It makes sense that Sheila Johnson would model for Royal Silk, a New Jersey-based company selling silk-fabric clothes of every persuasion, because her beauty is as smooth and as inviting as silk itself. 

So, for my last two pictures for this week-long look back at Ms. Johnson, I present photos from two of her Royal Silk ads.  Both of them show her wearing blouses.

The photo above, from a Royal Silk ad in the March 1983 issue of U.S. Vogue, shows the Sheila Johnson I fell in love with back in the eighties . . . sweet, alluring, and sensual, with her soft smile and her warm, inviting eyes.  The reclining pose complements her come-hither look quite nicely.

In the photo below, she strikes a different pose.    

This photo, from a Royal Silk ad in the February 1984 issue of U.S. Vogue, shows the confident, determined Sheila Johnson that reminds us why we love the woman.  Her strong, tall-standing pose and her assured, assertive expression reveal her as a model who knows how to survive in the the tough business that the modeling trade is.  And those of us who love Sheila Johnson are glad she's had what it takes to thrive and prosper.

Next up, for the last full week of March - Margrit Ramme! :-)
