Diana “Lady Di” Ross sitting on bed backstage in 1965 at the Apollo Theatre, Harlem, New York. So much for stardom, you can tell it’s the early years with the shoes, bed and clothing all over before the performance.
Same night with Diana Ross and one of the Supremes sleeping rough (the dress Diana is wearing above is hung in this photo in the upper right hand corner).
Here Diana Ross (right) and two of the Supremes (Mary Wilson, Florence Ballard, and Barbara Martin) prepare for a performance at the Apollo Theatre backstage.
