Ross is considered the most successful female musician in history, with 70 hit singles both from her work with The Supremes (one of the best-selling girl groups of all time) and her solo work. She has starred in several films, including "Lady Sings the Blues" in 1972 and "The Wiz," the 1978 all-black rendition of "The Wizard of Oz," costarring Michael Jackson.
Photographed by Harry Langdon, who also shot all of Ross' early album covers, including her first solo album, which featured Ross looking surprisingly unglamorous in cutoff shorts. Langdon, son of the late vaudeville star of the same name, photographed Hollywood celebrities for over 40 years.
