Supreme Glamour showcases thirty-two of the group's most eye-catching gowns, meticulously reassembled and photographed on the Grammy Museum stage.

Some of the gowns were designed by close friend, Sir Keith Holman, who adds his thoughts and recollections about designing gowns for the iconic group.

The book contains never-before-seen color photographs from Holman's personal collection, as well as 300+ color illustrations. 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.

This book is a must-have for anyone interested in the fashion history of the Supremes!

Mary Wilson tells the complete story of The Supremes, both on- and off- stage, from their humble beginnings 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.

Supreme Glamour is available for pre-order here. The coffee table book is set for release everywhere on September 17, 2019.

    PRINCE The Beautiful Ones Hardcover – October 29, 2019

    The brilliant coming-of-age-and-into-superstardom story of one of the greatest artists of all time, in his own words—featuring never-before-seen photos, original scrapbooks and lyric sheets, and the exquisite memoir he began writing before his tragic death

    Prince(r.i.p.) was a musical genius, one of the most beloved, accomplished, and acclaimed musicians of our time. He was a startlingly original visionary with an imagination deep enough to whip up whole worlds, from the sexy, gritty funk paradise of “Uptown” to the mythical landscape of Purple Rain to the psychedelia of “Paisley Park.” But his most ambitious creative act was turning Prince Rogers Nelson(r.i.p.), born in Minnesota, into Prince(r.i.p.), one of the greatest pop stars of any era.

    The Beautiful Ones is the story of how Prince(r.i.p.) became Prince(r.i.p.)—a first-person account of a kid absorbing the world around him and then creating a persona, an artistic vision, and a life, before the hits and fame that would come to define him. The book is told in four parts. The first is the memoir Prince(r.i.p.) was writing before his tragic death, pages that bring us into his childhood world through his own lyrical prose. The second part takes us through Prince’s(r.I.p.) early years as a musician, before his first album was released, via an evocative scrapbook of writing and photos. The third section shows us Prince’s(r.i.p.) evolution through candid images that go up to the cusp of his greatest achievement, which we see in the book’s fourth section: his original handwritten treatment for Purple Rain—the final stage in Prince’s self-creation, where he retells the autobiography of the first three parts as a heroic journey.

    The book is framed by editor Dan Piepenbring’s riveting and moving introduction about his profound collaboration with Prince(r.i.p.) in his final months—a time when Prince(r.i.p.) was thinking deeply about how to reveal more of himself and his ideas to the world, while retaining the mystery and mystique he’d so carefully cultivated—and annotations that provide context to the book’s images.

    This work is not just a tribute to an icon, but an original and energizing literary work in its own right, full of Prince’s(r.i.p.) ideas and vision, his voice and image—his undying gift to the world.

  • Miss Thang

  • Miss Thang

  • Dreamer

    I’ll probably check this book out. I recently read Mary’s other two books and they were both a good read. I love me some Supremes and I always thought Mary was the prettiest. I’d love to meet her someday.

  • Lovechild

    I’ll have to buy that and I love the shade thrown in the photo with Miss Ross not giving full face.

    She really helped to cement a genre with her first book.

  • Angelique Johnson

    so its really talking about the fashion that was in their life at the time mostly.

  • Logan Roberts

    ??My baby love??

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Will buy!

    But, it’s a story to tell, and shows that we don’t have to keep it real and so hood!

    They brought the glitz and the glamour on an international stage, straight out the projects, and when many black women were still “The Help!”
