Description

Product Description

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 unparalleled collection, showcasing thirty-two of the group’s most eye-catching gowns, meticulously reassembled and 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 and celebrates the cultural icons they became. Engaging and insightful narrative text by Mary Wilson and close personal friend Mark Bego is interspersed among hundreds of archival photos. 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.

Review

"The untold story of Supreme style... There is barely a black female pop act ― Destiny’s Child, Janet Jackson, Janelle Monáe, Solange Knowles ― (let alone a white one) that hasn’t taken a page from the Supremes look book... The volume chronicles how the Supremes...became agents of cultural change in the 1960s, breaking the race ceiling by weaponizing fashion and defining the way many women ― black women, white women ― wanted to look."
The New York Times

"Wilson, one of the original members of the Supremes, shares her collection of some of the lavish costumes she flaunted throughout the 1960s and ’70’s… [She] shares fun anecdotes as the Supremes gained popularity… Both entertaining and aesthetically pleasing, this book will appeal to Supremes fans and vintage fashion enthusiasts alike."
Publishers Weekly

"This lavish new book…chronicles the trio''s history, with special attention paid to their fabulous, coordinated ensembles…. The photos are fantastic. Wilson details the context, explaining the performances linked with the dresses and what it felt like to be wearing these glamorous gowns.… Will be a hit with both music and fashion aficionados."
Pop Culture Classics

"This attractive hardcover book builds a complete picture of the charm, sophistication, and appeal of Motown’s leading act."
Music Connection

"A very personal, vividly illustrated story of [Wilson’s] life in the musical group.… The candid photographs provide a rich visual record of the stars’ life as performers. To see the gowns alongside Wilson’s down-to-earth accounts of what it felt like to wear them will be fun for enthusiasts of 1960s pop culture and The Supremes."
Library Journal

"Mary Wilson, a founding member of the Supremes, traces the history of the seminal Motown trio through their colorful, glamorous fashion, highlighting and examining 32 of the group’s most memorable gowns. (Bonus: The foreword is by Whoopi Goldberg.)"
New York Magazine

"A glitter-tastic tour of [The Supremes’] meteoritic rise via the eye-popping fashions they became known for."
O, The Oprah Magazine

"Whether they wore Grecian gowns, bell-bottom pants or mini dresses, the Supremes were always stylish. In a hybrid photography book and memoir, Mary Wilson tells her side of the trio''s story."
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"Music fans will enjoy Wilson’s insider perspective on Motown and the interactions between the group’s fluctuating members, while those with an interest in fashion will be dazzled by the glossy, full-color photos of the gowns."

Of course, the Supremes never would have hit the big time in 1964 without the wonderful compositions of Holland-Dozier-Holland, and their music remains timeless, but a big part of their appeal and mystique were the classy, sophisticated costumes and gowns they wore onstage and in publicity pics. No other girl group captured the Hollywood glamour the way these gals did. They were in a class all their own. Diana’s gamine, ‘thin-is-in’ look was years ahead of Twiggy, Florence was the regal, statuesque, full-bodied one and Mary, the flirty imp. There was a Supreme for every man’s taste and one which any girl could want to emulate. Those obsessed with fashion history will find lots to love in this book.

I was impressed with the design and layout of the book. It is thick hardcover and the title is embossed nicely. I kind of wonder if the cover photo is a dig at Diana Ross since her face is hardly showing, but then Mary does not express any bitterness throughout the pages so perhaps I am overthinking it. I was never one of those fans who felt the need to ‘take sides’ either way. Speaking of that, this is not a dishy book like Dreamgirl or Supreme Faith, so if that’s what you’re looking for, it’s best to look elsewhere. While the glamour is the focus here, Mary also gives a chronological itinerary of their performance schedule through the early ‘60s to 1977 with mentions of the various members, Motown personnel and other showbiz types she encountered and worked with along the way. Not a lot of deep info here. She does recount the time Princess Margaret asked if she was wearing a wig when the Supremes met the Royals in 1968, which I found amusing. The one complaint I have is that many of the photo scans seem like they were over-sharpened in Photoshop. I realize this was probably to emphasize the details on the gowns, but it makes the faces and everything else look too sharp, giving it that jagged look. Also, I wish it had been printed on glossy pages for a lusher look. Many of the pics show the gowns in great detail, so you can really see the beading and stitching up close.

You’ve got to hand it to Mary Wilson. Over 40 years after the group split, she’s still able to rake in some bucks cashing in on that time period. Good for her! It says something about the Supremes everlasting appeal that CDs, DVDs and books about them are still selling 55 years after their first #1 hit. This is a nice coffee table book that should please most Supremes fans.

Great pictures. Many available on internet or Facebook posts from fans. Insight into the gowns and history. The text is vanilla. No revelations. She is sad on the 14 of Jan 70 because ‘Diane now left her as Flo had.’ Generous pictures of Diana throughout are pleasant surprise. Suggestion use the official name of Miss Ross. You can say that you knew her as Diane but the public knows her as Diana. It’s an insult to call someone a name they are not called.

FOR A VERY CHEAP PRICE> MARY WILSON SPENT MPORE THAN $100,000 to assemble this collection of Supremes Gowns Dress''s and outfits; Back in 2006, I met her in Vermont. IF YOU LOVE THE SUPREMES OR MOTOWN MUSIC LOOK AT HER WEBSITE and go see her. The Last time I saw her she was touring with Martha Reeves as in Martha Reeves and the Vandella''s. Mary at age 70 plus, Is lovely She lets audience members come up on stage during STOP IN THE NAME OF LOVE.
She was so friendly and kind. She comes out to lobby and GLADLY signed your records your photos. And she posses for photos with fans. This Book is a project of love. ONLY MARY kept the Supremes going until finally 2 minutes away from being Disco Stars she finally pulls the plug. She and Diana are now at peace. She has been slowly buying up as many sets of 3 matching Gowns sets. as she possibly could. Sometimes she could only buy 1 of the three.
From 1964 to 1977 The Supremes wore MANY HUNDREDS of outfits. This book is of the Outfits. The Supremes collection Mary compiled. tours the country and I suppose outside the country she was given an AWARD for excellence.
I contributed $40 to her goal. I was actually supposed to See her and THE FOUR TOPS on April 11th, 2019 but COVID canceled. It and no I did not get my money back. YET/ Mary stayed in the lobby signing and taking photos with fans LONG AFTER the intermission she stayed the entire time Martha was on stage.

This book is a such a treasure. Inside these pages are pictures of the beautiful Supremes and their glamorous gowns. The talented and gorgeous Supreme Mary Wilson with Mark Bego has done some great work on this book. I love the packaging of this book. It is a big hardcover book full of colorful photos. The photographs of the gowns are outstanding and breathtaking. The details of the story on the gowns are very interesting. In the text Mary tells the story of the Supremes. Mary’s experience as a Supreme is exciting and inspirational. Supremes founding member Mary Wilson has documented the Supremes legacy very well in this book. I highly recommend this book. I can not put it down. Thank You Mary Wilson! Donnell Graves.

...and that''s better editing. The text needs to be cleaned up -- no "me, Flo and Diane," no "Diane, Flo and me," no "no one did this better than I," and so on. The book is nicely designed and laid out, and the photos and illustrations speak (loudly) for themselves. They were indeed stylish and beguiling from the beginning, learning quick-like right off the bat. Mary holds back any bitterness, although her disappointment about how things evolved is voiced via Flo''s story, and it''s clear Mary thought Flo was done wrong. Mary''s ego and confidence are fully intact, out there for readers to enjoy.
I enjoyed the book very much, and have read parts of it several times, already. A good gift, methinks.
Later Update: The idea that the cover photo is somehow disrespectful to Diana is not true. In fact, it''s a glamorous shot, what with the eyelashes and swirl of hair, so fully typical of her. Don''t read anything into this. Besides, there are DOZENS of photos of Diana throughout the book.
