Miss Diana Ross does Broadway as only she can. With a little help from Bob Mackie!

  1. You know those chaps were based on a pair in Mr. Mackie's private collection. His very private collection.

  3. Okay. I started out watching #3 and thought, "Cecil Beaton shoulda sued." I ended up, after all three, deciding that actually Cecil Beaton, Lerner and Loewe, Julie Andrews (and Audrey Hepburn AND Marni Nixon), Irving Berlin, Ethel Merman, Angela Lansbury, Jerry Herman, and, just for the hell of it, Mary, Cindy, and the estate of Flo should have gone in on a class-action suit.

    Diane is Diane, but in getups like this, you're reminded that really only Cher (and maybe occasionally Carol Burnett) wears Bob Mackie outfits - ordinary mortals get worn by them...

  4. Would,"They call her Miss Ross",have even done this if she knew the clothes were wearing Her?.

  5. It's true, her performance does take a back seat to the costumes. Showtunes really aren't her forte. But she gets an "A" for effort!
