Style Spotlight: Dolly Parton

The accomplishments of this bigger than life persona, with a bigger than life voice, are almost too many to name: recipient of multiple Country Music and Grammy awards, an inductee into the Country Music Hall of Fame – she is one of the few to make the successful transition between music and film (9 to 5 and Steel Magnolia, to name a couple). She continues to entertain audiences in an unlikely platform – the opening of Dollywood, a theme park 27 years in operation. She's written books, penned songs and even had the first cloned sheep named after her; but it's her magnetic, genuine personality that has truly earned her a devoted following – an openess to speak about growing up very poor as one of 12 (12!) and seemingly never losing a respect for her humble beginnings And while her voluptuous figure is stuff of legend, her breakout country style was stylishly simple and continues to serve as sartorial inspiration today.
