Supreme Glamour


In her new book, Mary Wilson sings the praises of the glamorous, iconic styles that gave the Supremes their sparkle.


The brand new book Supreme Glamour by original Supremes member Mary Wilson celebrates the story and the iconic fashions of the Motown superstars, illustrated from Wilson’s own unmatched collection.


The 240-page hardcover book features 400 color illustrations of the trio’s most eye-catching gowns, and chronicles the evolution of the Supremes and their route to the pinnacle of 1960s popular culture while sharing anecdotes about the group’s earliest days, their 1964 breakthrough with Where Did Our Love Go, the departure of Diana Ross and Wilson’s continuation with the Supremes as a hit act in the 1970s.


“This project has been a labor of love for me,” Wilson writes in her introduction to Supreme Glamour. “What we wore truly mattered. We took our fans from the sophisticated shirtwaist dresses of the 1950s, to the go-go boots and elaborate hairpieces/wigs and gowns of the 1960s, to the Afros and ‘hot pants’ of the disco 1970s, and beyond…our audiences always anticipated what we were going to wear on our next television performance, concert, or nightclub appearance. I hope we never disappointed them!”


This book is such a great journey of music and pop culture told through fashion, and we think its a brilliant way to tell history... and that is why we ❤️it. Can't wait to pick up a copy for the archives.
