The Motown influenced costumes for 2006’s “Dreamgirls,” a film that was based partially on the story of The Supremes. Beyoncé Knowles plays Deena Jones, a character based on Diana Ross, Jennifer Hudson plays Effie White, based on Supremes member Florence Ballard, and Anika Noni Rose plays Morrell Robinson, based on Mary Wilson of the Supremes. These dresses were worn by Knowles, Sharon Leal, and Rose. The exhibition also features a two piece suit trimmed in black rabbit fur worn by Lawrence. (WOUB Public Media/Emily Votaw)
