The Evolution of Dolly Parton

While it can be (forcefully) argued that the Queen of Country needs no introduction, I will bore you with one anyway. Dolly Rebecca Parton, she of the 25 number-one singles and 41 top-ten country albums, was born in Sevierville, Tennessee in 1946, one of twelve children. She was a child performer and went one to become one of the most successful female country musicians ever. Known for her big blonde hair, big bubbly personality, and big, big boobs, the self-proclaimed Backwoods Barbie always rocked a style all her own. Dolly Parton is a true fashion icon for generations of girls who love pink and sparkle. As she always said, “You’d be surprised how much it costs to look this cheap!”
