Dolly Parton Partners With Grammy Museum For Fashion Exhibit
Dolly Parton is partnering with the Grammy Museum to showcase some of her most iconic looks in a new exhibit. Last week, the living legend hopped on Instagram to announce the imminent opening of Diamond In A Rhinestone World: The Costumes Of Dolly Parton. “Startin’ Feb. 4th you’ll be able to see some of my favorite outfits from over the years,” she teased. “Bring your sunglasses because the bling is blinding.” The “Here I Am” hitmaker shared even more information in a press release. “I probably have thousands of dresses from over the years,” she explained. “I had a hard time letting go of some of my favorites, but I’m excited for them to be included in this exhibit. I can’t wait to see them on display at the GRAMMY Museum!”
Which blinged out looks made the cut? Some of the must-see outfits include pieces from her “Home” video and the pink and leopard-print dress from the Backwoods Barbie album cover. Diamond In A Rhinestone World opens February 4 with a special appearance from Dolly. It will be accessible to the public February 5 through March 17. The collaboration marks the first time the icon has showcased anything from her collection in the US outside of Dollywood. Grammy Museum executive director Michael Sticka gushed over the honor. “To say that it’s an honor to showcase [Dolly’s] all-time greatest outfits and her first exhibit in the United States outside of Dollywood at the GRAMMY Museum is an understatement.”
