The name Bob Mackie is synonymous with eye-catching glamour and head-turning style. Even if you’re not familiar with his name, you’ve almost undoubtedly seen his work on the screen, on the stage or in celebrity photographs. After all, he’s dressed stars like Cher, Carol Burnett, Tina Turner, Judy Garland, Madonna and many, many more over the course of his 50-plus year career. Some of my very own favorite entertainers have worn Bob Mackie designs, including The Supremes, Lucille Ball, and Pink.
