Oh, Dolly. Wearing a flower crown before Snapchat made it popular, Parton won Favorite Country Album for New Harvest, First Gathering.
That's our Dolly.
Come award season, we practically live to see which glittery getup Dolly will rock down the red carpet. From flashy pantsuits to pink princess gowns, Dolly’s red carpet looks are anything but boring. Dolly’s style is only one of the reasons why we love her. The beauty icon has a killer sense of humor and a heart of gold to boot, which makes following her fashion through the years all the more enjoyable.
The queen of country can act, too. She played herself in the movie “9 to 5,” earning nominations for New Star of the Year in a Motion Picture, Best Motion Picture Actress, and Best Original Song. And, in our opinion, the best sequins.
A big night warrants big hair and an even bigger fashion statement. Parton, nominated for Favorite TV Performance and Favorite Female Artist, shows us that it’s possible to combine pearls, sequins, rhinestones, and fur and still look fab.
Dolly took home the Top Song of the Year Award for “I Will Always Love You.” Dolly, we will always love you.

The same night, Parton traded in her pink red carpet dress for an icy blue performance gown, which became one of our hands-down favorite red carpet looks. Did anyone else notice the rhinestone return at this year’s Golden Globes?
In a reception post-performance, Dolly showed up in her third show-stopping getup, years ahead of both the pantsuit and the over-the-knee boot trends.
Dolly performed live in the celebration of Kenny Rogers’s career in this fiery red ensemble; we really can’t wait to see the Second 50 Years special.
What else did you expect her to wear?
