A lady in leather! Country sensation Dolly Parton, 77, stopped by BBC’s The One in London on Jun. 30 to promote her upcoming album, Rockstar, and looked sensational in an all-leather outfit. The blonde beauty rocked a black leather bustier complete with a sequined fishnet crop top and matching leather pants. Dolly added an extra sizzle to her trousers, as they featured fishnet seams.
Of course, the “Jolene” hitmaker made sure to accessorize the outfit and added some of her signature touches. The 77-year-old styled her golden tresses in her signature half-up-half-down style and added sky-high heels to her ensemble. The Grammy winner even made sure her manicure was on point and had long hot-pink acrylic nails in typical Dolly fashion. As previously mentioned, the songstress made an appearance on BBC’s The One to promote her latest projects. She was notably accompanied by singer Rita Ora, 32, who nearly matched Dolly in an all-black ensemble.
During Dolly’s appearance on the talk show, she talked about her upcoming album and her upcoming book, Behind the Seams, which is due out in Oct. 2023. While talking about her latest projects, the music legend made a joke about her love for fashion and high heels. “I do have my high heel sneakers… with stones!”, she quipped. “I’m tacky as anybody at home. We all have our comfort zone and everyone’s comfort zone is different.” The Steel Magnolias star then explained that she likes to wear her heels at home due to her height. “I loved high heels before I even knew I was going to be short,” Dolly gushed. “I can’t even reach my cabinets and things so I’m often wearing them.”
The Dolly Parton, Songteller: My Life in Lyrics author later went on to joke about her husband, Carl Thomas Dean, 80, and her famous song “Jolene.” As many know, the hit song which was first released in 1973, is about a woman that Dolly is begging to leave her man alone. “He was a little embarrassed when I wrote the song,” she said with a laugh. “I just joke about it now. I look at him when I say ‘Every time I see you over there in that Lazy Boy chair snoring and sleeping I think, where is Jolene when I need her? You can have him now!’”
“Where’s Joelene when you need her! You can have him now!” 😂@DollyParton explains the origin of one of her most famous songs!
