Ms. Dolly

The industry met Dolly some fifty years ago. Since then she has gone from fun-loving country starlet to global icon of music and film whose devotees unfailingly fill a theme park made in her honour. Dolly Parton is adored, acclaimed, and larger than life.

Contemporizing country music with a proud, affirmative stance on gay rights, she’s a razor sharp businessperson, an influential philanthropist and a patron saint of drag queens. Her iconic look both embraces and mocks the best and worst of high country glamour.

Here, we present ACS’s most loved style-Dollyisms in all of their fringe-laden, rhinestone-resplendent glory.
