Dolly Parton's style journey captured in 29 photos: from Americana to America's sweetheart

The philanthropic country star certainly has a magpie-like eye for all things sparkly

She may have sung the hit track 9 to 5, but Dolly Parton's seamstress has surely put in plenty of overtime over the years thanks to the singer's love of bling.

The country music star, who shot to fame with songs such as Jolene, has long been a fan of the old razzle-dazzle when it comes to her wardrobe, and can often be relied upon to bring plenty of sparkle to the red carpet.

The singer-songwriter, who made headlines last week after donating $1 million to Covid-19 vaccine research, is known for her signature style, which fuses Western-inspired silhouettes and vintage finds with lashings of sequins, beads and fringing.

Parton, 74, is also just as renowned for her voluminous 'dos, embracing the transformative power of a wig over the years to dabble with a range of towering styles.

Here, we take a look at how the star's style has evolved throughout her time in the spotlight.
