    Supremes shoe sizes

    Anyone care to speculate what size shoes each of "the girls" wore?

    I suspect Susaye is a petite 5.

    Jean, on the otherhand, must have been a 12 or 13.

    Similarly, I would like to know the hair length of each of their wigs in 1965. I'm gonna guess that Mary's were longer than Diana's. Does anyone happen to know??

    Oh man, this must be a slow day. Let's forget shoe sizes and height. How about going straight to bra sizes?

    Flo - F is for fullsome

    Mary - M is for massive

    Diana - D is for dimpledy

    Lynda - L is for luscious

    And because a couple others frequent this forum and know me from Facebook, I am not going there.

    Hand sizes should be easy to assess from the videos to Stop In The Name Of Love

    Their hand sizes were obviously unknown as they Kept Falling In And Out Of Gloves.

    I've been wondering about their eye-lashes!!

    It always seemed to me that Diana had the longest ones but I would appreciate any inside knowledge.

    Well, Mary, there's a question that doesn't come up every day!

    I have read that world-reknown shoe designer Manolo Blahnik thinks Diana Ross has the most perfect feet.

    Show business and shoe business are now one.

    I have been away for several months. I have missed my friends here at Soulful Detroit.

    When it comes to feet our friend Roberta should know the answers to these questions.

    I think this thread is so funny.

    Quite seriously, I think Diana wore #301.

    I do know a thing or two about eyelashes.

    I guess the Supreme with the smallest hands would have worn Baby Gloves

    marybrewster....this is an amazingly logical question....one I have periodically thought about over the years, not
    because I didn't know who's feet were larger, but because the cover image on the LP "Diana Ross [[1970)" made it sooooo obvious that Diana is indeed a WINNER! It may be because she is so tiny body-wise...but THAT FOOT!!!! It is a BIGFOOT....but I always loved her courage for allowing that foot to be shown in all it's glory!

    OK, I'll play along too.

    You could take the "Meet The Supremes" stool cover and photo-shop the picture to remove their white gloves and rename the album "Where Did Our Gloves Go?" Or maybe subtitled "The Gloves That Got Away".

    Perhaps "My World Is Empty Without You" would've gone to number one if HDH had called it "My World Is Empty Without Shoes, Babe"

    Diane Ross has beautiful feet but the best feet I have ever seen were on Mary Wilson and the First Lady of Motown Miss Martha Reeves. Both ladies have sensual elongated feet that took my breath away.

    Yours, with every good wish.

    When Harry Balk first saw this picture that was to be used for an album cover, he had a fit and thought Diana's management had lost their minds.

    ralpht; I've always wondered what Diana's take was on this album cover. After being a glammed out cover girl starting with the "Reflections" LP [[maybe minus "Love Child"), this wasn't the sequins and lashes and rhinestones that everyone was used to.

    My burning question: are the shorts she's wearing here the shorts she wore on Sullivan for "Love Child"?

    I wonder if the Supremes should have recorded "The Bunion Song"?

    Maybe they were fashioning the cover similar to Barbra Streisand's 1965 album cover for "My Name Is Barbra" which shows a young girl picture of Barbra. Although they could have used Diana's young girl picture of her with her baton.

    I can never attach a pic to this forum so here are some links:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Barbra-Strei...item2576c87009

    Even Diana's back cover with a full shot of her superimposed over a head-shot is similar to Barbra's back cover of that same album.

    Here is the CD version of the picture from the back cover of Diana's first solo album.

    But the shadow cast by Diane over the whole affair was Size 100.

    According to Answers.com, "Florance Ballard was 54ft tall and wore a size 6/ in shoe... "

    A few spelling and punctuation errors, I think! Or else she was really, really tall...
