Glitter! Fringe! Mini dresses! Dolly Parton is as much a fashion icon as she is a music legend.
The “Just Because I’m a Woman” singer has never been one to shy away making a style statement on the red carpet and beyond. From sizzling getups to figure hugging ensembles — she’s slayed it all.
Though the “9 to 5” singer told Vogue in October 2020 that she’s “never thought of herself as fashionable,” she has stunned in a variety of glamorous ensembles through the years. Whether she’s signing CDs at Best Buy or attending one of the first-ever Vanity Fair Oscar parties, fans can expect her to dress to impress.
For instance, in 1984, the “Jolene” singer attended the New York City premiere of Rhinestone alongside her co-star Sylvester Stallone. For the sleek affair, she dazzled in a beautiful white off-the-shoulder gown with lovely embroidery. “I remember thinking I have to look good because Stallone was hotter than Dooley at that time,” she told Vogue in October 2020. “So I tried to look my Dolly best!”
In a 2019 interview with Vogue, the blonde beauty joked, “I always joke that I never leave a rhinestone unturned,” She continued, “I have to have sparkles on my clothes. It makes me feel vibrant. Shoot, even my pajamas have rhinestones on them!”
It’s not just fashion that the “My Tennessee Mountain Home” singer goes all-out with — Parton also favors incredibly bouncy hairstyles and lots of makeup. “I know that I always like to wear a lot of makeup. More than probably I should wear,” she said during a 2020 interview with Vogue. “But I think more is more, and whoever made up that ‘less is more’ is full of it!”
One of the “I Will Always Love You” singer’s most memorable looks was her ensemble to the 2022 Academy of Country Music Awards. For the soirée, she donned four different outfits — and each one was just as magnificent as the other.
The Tennessee native arrived at the awards ceremony in a gold and black number complete with a fringe skirt and sleeves. She styled her strands in a voluminous updo and added a butterfly clip at her crown. For her second look, she changed into a reflective jumpsuit. The figure-hugging number featured a shattered glass design and rhinestones. The “Island In The Stream” singer added silver platform heels to complete the number.
Next, the “Two Doors Down” singer went back to her country roots and sported a cowgirl hat, yellow V-neck and blue jeans while strumming her guitar on stage. Finally, the “Wildflowers” singer changed into a midi golden dress to end the night and sported champagne-colored pumps.
The hitmaker has an unforgettable sense of fashion, and we’re taking a look back at her most memorable moments on the red carpet.
