Suzy Creamcheese Loves You!

Suzy Creamcheese Loves You!

Posted by Maggie Muellner on

The original Suzy Creamcheese sprung from the wonderfully twisted brain of Frank Zappa in 1966 when a letter supposedly written by her appeared on the back of his debut double album  "Freak Out", complaining that "these Mothers are crazy. You can tell by their clothes."


Within a few years, Leslie Fearon had assumed the moniker and opened a boutique in Las Vegas called Suzy Creamcheese that became legendary for selling amazing one-of-a-kind fashions coveted and worn by celebrities, show girls and strippers. Throughout the 1970s, movie stars like Ann Margaret, Shirley MacClaine, and musicians like Dionne Warwick, Cher, and Stevie Nicks, shopped at Suzy Creamcheese. Wives of mobsters loved the clothes too, a fact given a nod in the movie "Casino", when Sharon Stone's character, Ginger, talks about shopping there. Elvis Presley bought stagewear for himself from Suzy Creamcheese as well as outfits for his wife Priscilla Presley and a succession of girlfriends.

  • I was a singer in Vegas mid sixties and used to buy all my clothes there. I knew Jay and Suzy well and modeled a Spanish style creation for Suzy on a local tv show. She was fun and I spent a lot of money there. I was a real fashionista! I worked often at the Silver Slipper after I moved to Vegas. I saw Jay at Ceasar’s Palace where they had their store. We talked for a while. I had returned from a European gig mid 1971 and had been working as a jazz vocalist with Dexter Gordon and other legends.
