Parton talks fashion in upcoming book
Wednesday, March 22, 2023
– Dolly Parton will share her lifelong passion for fashion in "Behind the Seams: My Life in Rhinestones," a book that will be out Oct. 17.
"I am happy, proud and excited to present my book, 'Behind the Seams,' to the public. It is my hope that you will enjoy a look at my life in costume and hair and get to know some of the great people who have helped shape my life and my look. Enjoy."
Featuring behind-the-scenes stories from Parton's life and career and the largest reveal of her private costume archive, the book spotlights her looks from the 1960s to now including wigs, makeup and stage clothes.
Parton discusses outfits from her past, from the clothes her mother would sew out of feed sacks (including her "Coat of Many Colors") and the bunny suit on the cover of Playboy, evening wear at Studio 54, costumes from her film and TV roles, and the daring styles.
The book will be published by Ten Speed Press.
