Collection: Runway RunAway A Backstage Pass To Fashion, Romance, & Rock 'n Roll

Runway RunAway A Backstage Pass To Fashion, Romance, & Rock 'n Roll. Amemoire written by Lorelei Shellist

From the streets, as a teenage runaway, to the catwalks of Paris, Milan, Rome, & New York, working as a model/muse to Chanel, YSL, Karl Lagerfeld, Armani, and Christian Lacroix, Lorelei Shellist has led a life full of gritty and glamorous extremes. Runway RunAway A Backstage Pass to Fashion, Romance and Rock ’n Roll, is a 300 page memoir that at the surface may seem all glitz and glam, but whose beauty runs deep. An every woman's quest for strength, hope, happiness, understanding and inner peace. Fortitude and sheer will jetted her off to Europe, where she met the doomed love her life; fiancé Steve Clark, of the multi-platinum selling, recently inducted Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band, Def Leppard.

Theirs was a relationship with dizzying highs and bottomless lows, as she watched Steve Clark drink and drug himself to death, and caught herself in the wake of his spiraling cycle of addiction and depression, unable to help.

Ultimately fleeing and finding the strength to save herself, Lorelei shares her candid and blatant truth of how she survived the greatest loss in her life, the aftermath and the determination to not only survive, but to heal her-self and help to heal others.

Runway Runaway is highlighted by never before seen photos of the music and fashion industries, hand written journal entries, agenda pages, and backstage passes illustrating the story of a neglected child turned teenage runaway, who follows her dreams to become an international model, eventually finding herself in the process.

Rebellious, headstrong, independent - and on her own at age 15 - Lorelei dreamed of being a model, and made that happen through serendipity; a chance meeting with a '70s SoCal Rock Star The Eagles Don Henley opened the A-list Hollywood doors to a wondrous world, as well as a full-blown romance. Pounding the pavement in L.A. and New York taught her the hard knocks of being a working class model. Sheer will and determination jetted her off to Europe, where she became a top runway and magazine model, and where she met her soon to be fiancé Steve Clark of Def Leppard. While this is not The Def Leppard Steve Clark Story, or The Eagles Don Henley Story, it is Lorelei’s courageous story told with humor, pathos, and a world map of insight. It is a story of perseverance, determination, compassion, loss and following your dreams no matter what.
