Teri Shields raised eyebrows when she allowed her 11-year-old daughter, Brooke, to be cast as a prostitute in 1978's Pretty Baby. A few years later, she permitted a teenage Brooke Shields to famously star in a series of commercials for Calvin Klein jeans, provocatively professing that nothing comes between "me and my Calvins."


Teri Shields died last week in New York City, according to Jill Fritzo, a spokeswoman for Brooke Shields. The New York Times reported the elder Shields died following a long illness related to dementia.
