Sumptuously illustrated, engaging, and insightful, Mary Wilson’s book charts the glittering story of The Supremes, as it showcases their glamorous and iconic ensembles.
As Motown’s leading act in the 1960s, The Supremes became synonymous with glamorous, elegant, coordinated ensembles. "Supreme Glamour" presents founding member Mary Wilson’s collection, showcasing thirty-two of the group’s eye-catching gowns photographed on the Grammy Museum stage. Detailed captions accompany each photograph, providing information about the design, fabric, and embellishments of each ensemble, as well as the occasion on which each was first worn.
In addition to the fashion history of The Supremes, the book chronicles the evolution of the group through 1977, and celebrates the cultural icons they became. Packed with anecdotes and insights, Mary Wilson tells the complete story of The Supremes, both on- and off- stage, from their founding in Detroit in 1959 as The Primettes to their 1964 breakthrough hit, “Where Did Our Love Go,” and from the departure of Diana Ross to The Supremes’ disco hits of the 1970s. "Supreme Glamour" builds a complete picture of the charm, sophistication, and magic of The Supremes.
