She’s got hair that defies gravity and a dress sense that’s more trash than fash but that, after all, is why we love the one and only Dolly Parton.
From her self-deprecating humour to her ability to make rhinestone-covered tasselled jackets du jour, Dolly’s approach to style is one we can only sit back and admire.
So as the rootin’-tootin’ pint-sized star made her debut at the Glastonbury Festival, we’ve compiled our favourite Dolly quotes on fashion, beauty and, most importantly, hair!
Dolly on… fashion
“I look just like the girls next door … If you happen to live next door to an amusement park.”
“It’s a good thing I was born a girl … otherwise I’d be a drag queen.”
Dolly on… her body
“I tried every diet in the book. I tried some that weren't in the book. I tried eating the book. It tasted better than most of the diets.”
“If I see something saggin’, baggin’ or draggin’, I’m gonna have it nipped, tucked or sucked!”
Dolly on… her assets
“I’m in showbiz. I look at my boobs like they’re show horses or show dogs. You’ve got to keep ‘em groomed.”
“These are my weapons of mass distraction.”
“I don’t think they age. My girls are doing pretty good.”
Dolly on… make-up
“It costs a lot of money to look this cheap!”
“The only way I’d be caught without make-up is if my radio fell in the bathtub while I was taking a bath and electrocuted me and I was in between make-up at home. I hope my husband would slap a little lipstick on me before he took me to the morgue.”
Dolly on… hair
“I’m not offended by all the dumb blonde jokes because I know I’m not dumb … and I also know that I’m not blonde.”
“People always ask me how long it takes to do my hair. I don’t know, I’m never there.”
“My own hair is so flat and fine. I could never make it do anything — that’s why I wear wigs. I think God gave me talent cos he screwed up my hair.”
Dolly on… life
“It’s hard to be a diamond in a rhinestone world.”
“My weaknesses have always been food and men - in that order.”
“The magic is inside you. There ain't no crystal ball”
