Diana Ross and Mary Wilson (with Florence Ballard reflected in mirror) backstage at The T.A.M.I. Show, 1964

Female impersonators, 1964

In both instances, we're fairly certain someone got bitch-slapped shortly after the shutter clicked.


  1. diane shoulda gotten an oscar for that performance.

  2. Yeah, but what we didn't see is that when Di was done with Mary's makeup, she looked like a Picasso! :-P

  3. The Diana/Mary pic reminds me that when Jennifer Hudson wore a hideous short silver lam'e jacket to the Oscars(the year that she won) people joked that Beyonce suggested that she wear it. The drag queen pic is a hoot, the entire documentary,"Paris Is Burning" is on Youtube and it too is a hoot!
