She was a style icon in the 1960s, but at 72, singer Dolly Parton still oozes Hollywood glamour just as much as she did back then.
The country music star put on a stunning display in a skintight, sheer gold skirt as she performed at a luncheon in Los Angeles for the Netflix film Dumplin’, which boasts a soundtrack penned by the musical icon.
Dolly looked sensational in the eye-catching ensemble, which included a fitted black top and the embellished gold skirt. The American singer completed the glamorous look with black platform heels, gold accessories and wore her trademark blonde locks in voluminous waves. She also opted for flawless makeup, opting for black eyeliner and a pink lip.
While she may look sweet and innocent, Dolly recently proved she is not to be messed with as she recalled pulling a pistol on a man who wouldn’t stop harassing her on a New York street, during a candid chat with the Mail Online earlier this month.
Dolly confessed that her father gifted her a pistol when she left home at the age of 18, and revealed she didn’t hesitate to defend herself when the man refused to leave her and her girlfriend alone one night.
“We were in New York, it was very late and this guy thought we were street walkers,” she said. “I told him to get lost but he wouldn’t and so then I told him I’d turn him from a rooster into a hen and I got my pistol out of my purse and I shot it into the street. That did the trick!’
While she’s reached an age when many wouldn’t hesitate to hang up their cowgirl boots, Dolly recently launched her 9 to 5 musical in the UK, and is reportedly preparing to work her magic again, as she reunites with co-stars Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin in a long-anticipated reboot of the hit movie.
The country music superstar made her debut in 1967, with her album Hello, I’m Dolly, which become an immediate success. In her long, fruitful career, Dolly has recorded an array of hits including two-time chart-topper ‘I Will Always Love You’, ‘Jolene’, ‘Coat of Many Colours’ and ‘9 to 5’.
She has also had a successful acting career, receiving a Golden Globe in 1980 for New Star of the Year for her performance in 9 to 5 and has appeared in many films over the years including The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas (1982), which earned her a Golden Globe nomination, Rhinestone (1984) and Steel Magnolias (1989).
