As the daughter of actor/singer Harry Belafonte, Shari naturally found her way to the spotlight. After landing contracts with CoverGirl and Calvin Klein Jeans, Shari Belafonte made the switch from modeling to acting in the early 1980s. Although she is best known for her role as Julie Gilette in the 1983-1988 TV series, "Hotel," and as Dr. Laura Wingate on 1991-1993's "Beyond Reality," it is her modeling days that we return to with the photo below from 1981. By a pool in Beverly Hills, California, Shari shows how to pull off casual, chic separates for summer. Would you give the look a try?
