"[A] lavish, coffee-table winner."--Parade

"The book is an encyclopedia of iconic pop-culture moments; it's a visual feast for fashion enthusiasts and a treasured keepsake for Parton's loyal fans. But even more so than that, it serves as a reminder that Parton's superpower--and perhaps even the reason for her record-breaking longevity in Hollywood--is her authenticity."--The Cut

"Dolly Parton charts her formidable career through the prism of her unique wardrobe with full-colour photos and laugh-out-loud anecdotes. Camp and colourful but no less inspiring, this book is for fans old and young alike."--The Standard

"In this effervescent full-color volume, Parton recounts the vivid tales behind the clothes. . . . Throughout this graciously and generously illuminated book . . . [her] personal style shines brightly. . . . An unforgettable personal and professional history of a beloved country music performer . . . [and] a must-have treasury for diehard Dolly fans and armchair fashionistas."--Kirkus Reviews

"Enriched with insights . . ., this is both a lush visual feast and a testament to the originality and self-possession that made Parton a force to be reckoned with: an entertainer who refused to accede to trends, was firmly in control of her own sexuality, and expanded the stylistic possibilities available to female performers. Fashion lovers and country fans alike will be enchanted."--Publishers Weekly
