Besides his iconic designs, Mackie’s enduring relationships with Hollywood’s Ladies of Glamour set him apart, such as his 50 year friendship and designing partnership with Cher. Mackie was also the costume designer for Carol Burnett on The Carol Burnett Show during its entire 11-year run and maintains a close relationship with the actress and comedienne. “Bob not only created the beautiful gowns I wore during the Q&A segments, but the funny and clever character costumes… He not only designed my various “looks,” he designed every single costume everyone else wore every single show, averaging 65 costumes a week! In 11 years, that comes to over 17,000 costumes! Often, I depended on him to help me find my character by giving me her “look.” He is a genius. Period. I love him dearly.” Carol Burnett. As Mackie has said himself, "A woman who wears my clothes is not afraid to be noticed.” Certain fashion designers reach the status of legend, but none more than American designer and costumer Bob Mackie. 639 TINA TURNER COSTUME WORN WHILE PERFORMING WITH CHER A custom-made black crepe bodysuit worn by Tina Turner while performing “Shame, Shame, Shame” with Cher on Cher (CBS, 1975-1976).
