CAPTION: "Shalamar's only female member Jody Watley who is a longtime friend and dance partner of Jeffrey's enjoys the New Wave look too. She took advantage of the opportunity to purchase clothing and accessories which would compliment Jeffrey's wardrobe. Now they have to get their lead singer Howard Hewett into the act. He's resisted their attempts to convert him so far."
