Dolly Parton announced yesterday that she has a new book coming out this fall – all about her lifelong passion for style and fashion. Titled “Behind The Seams – My Life In Rhinestones,” the book will detail the many fashions and looks the icon has had in her 50+ years in the entertainment industry. It offers a look at Parton’s private costume archive, with photographs highlighting many of her most iconic looks, beginning with the 1960s and chronicling her style through present-day. The book spotlights her famous wigs, towering heels and sparkly stage clothes – including the bunny suit she wore on the cover of “Playboy,” outfits worn at the legendary Studio 54, and costumes from many of her film and television roles.
And it wouldn’t be true Dolly without plenty of stories and humor, as she also discusses fashion that had an impact on her childhood and career, such as the clothes her mother would sew out of feed sacks (including her famous “Coat of Many Colors”). The book comes out October 17.
