Bob Mackie Biography

In 1961, while he was working at Paramount Studios, costumer Edith Head found Mackie. In his early career, he worked as a sketch artist for French Haute Couturier Jean Louis, who is noted for crafting stage gowns worn by screen Marlene Dietrich during her career as a cabaret singer. In 1966, he was hired by Mitzi Gaynor to design her new stage show at the Riviera in Las Vegas.

Mitzi was the first-star client for which Mackie designed an entire show. He would continue to design for Mitzi’s television specials and live stage shows for the next 50 years. He also won two Emmy Awards for Outstanding Achievement in Costume Design for Music-Variety for Mitzi’s TV specials “Mitzi…Roarin’ in the Twenties” (1976) and “Mitzi…Zings Into Spring” (1977).

In 1969, Mackie was hired to design costumes for Diana Ross, The Supremes, and The Temptations in the television special GIT: On Broadway. In 1972, he and Aghayan were nominated for Best Costume Design for Lady Sings The Blues, starring Diana Ross. He and Diana Ross continued their collaborative efforts well into the 21st century, with Mackie designing stage costumes for Ross’ 2010 More Today Than Yesterday: The Greatest Hits Tour.

Mackie designed costumes for the Las Vegas Strip-based burlesque shows, Hallelujah Hollywood, which was inspired by the Ziegfeld Follies and ran at the MGM Grand (now Bally’s Las Vegas) from 1974 to 1980, and Jubilee!, which ran from 1981 to 2016. Both productions involve intricate, elaborate costumes and grandiose sets.

Images of Mackie’s design drawings productions are available in the “Showgirls” collection from UNLV Libraries Digital Collections. He created the costumes for Cher’s 2008–11 Las Vegas Cher at the Colosseum residency at Caesars Palace, as well as for her 2017 “Classic Cher” shows in Las Vegas and Washington D.C.

Two of Mackie’s best-remembered creations had a humorous aspect. While working on The Carol Burnett Show, he designed a “curtain dress” (complete with a curtain rod across the shoulders) that Carol Burnett wore in Went with the Wind!, a parody of Gone with the Wind.

He designed the exotic ensemble worn by Cher at the March 1986 Academy Awards: black stretch pants, a bejeweled loincloth, knee-high boots, a black chainlink top, and a huge feathered Mohawk headdress that was one and a half times taller than her head. Introduced by Jane Fonda with the words, “Wait’ll you see what’s gonna come out here”.

“As you can see,” said Cher, “I did receive my Academy booklet on how to dress like a serious actress.” Mackie designed costumes for Whitney Houston, especially splashy evening gowns which she wore for many years during concert tours and award shows. He was often referred to as “the sultan of sequins” or “the rajah of rhinestones”, known for his sparkling and imaginative costume designs.

He has won nine Emmy Awards for his designs, and has been nominated three times for an Academy Award. He said, “A woman who wears my clothes is not afraid to be noticed.” In 1981, he guest-starred as himself on two episodes of the television series The Love Boat. In 2002, he was inducted into the Television Hall of Fame.

He is most known as the costume designer for Cher’s elaborate outfit during her latest tours, including her latest Here We Go Again Tour. In 2019, he won the Tony Award for Best Costume Design in a Musical for his work on The Cher Show (musical).

In 2020, he dresses were featured and worn by television hostess Vanna White over the week of April 27 in the long-running syndicated game show Wheel of Fortune as part of honoring the San Francisco Bay Area in the state of California.
