Style Icon: Dolly


Singer-songwriter, actress, author, businesswoman, humanitarian and all round camp cowgirl Dolly Parton turned 70 this week, so we have been playing her greatest hits on a loop and celebrating her unique sense of style.

Here are five things you may or may not know about Dolly.

  • She once entered a Dolly Parton look-a-like competition – and lost!
  • She is Miley Cyrus’s godmother and has appeared in Hannah Montana as Aunt Dolly.


  • She owns her own theme park Dollywood, but is too scared to go on any of the rides.


  • She has been married to asphalt-paving business owner, Carl Dean, since 1966.


  • Dolly may have turned 70, but she has no plans to slow down.

“I will never retire unless I have to. As long as I’m able to get up in the morning, get that makeup on and my high heels on, and even if I can’t wear high heels, I’m going to do like Mae West, I’m going to sit in a wheelchair with my high heels on.”
