Supreme Glamour builds a complete picture of the glamour and sophistication of The Supremes. With the assistance of her close friend Mark Bego, Mary Wilson tells the complete story of the group, both on- and off-stage, from their beginnings as The Primettes in June 1959 to their 1964 breakthrough Motown hit, ‘Where Did Our Love Go’, and from the departure of Diana Ross to the group’s comeback in the mid-1970s. Packed with personal anecdotes and reflections from Mary herself, the book features rare archive photography and ephemera, much taken from Mary’s personal collection.
As Motown’s leading 1960s act, The Supremes have always been synonymous with glamorous, elegant coordinated costumes. Supreme Glamour complements and extends their inspiring story by interleaving text sections with the cream of Mary Wilson’s unparalleled collection of Supremes outfits, showcasing thirty-five of the most eye-catching ensembles, painstakingly re-assembled and photographed on the Grammy museum stage. The book, that includes a foreword by Whoopi Goldberg, features detailed captions that accompany each photograph, providing all the key information about the design, the fabric, the embellishments, and the occasion on which each was first worn.
