InStyle: Dolly Parton's Transformation

1 of 16

Dolly Parton

"I'm just a backwoods Barbie, too much makeup, too much hair," Dolly Parton sang on a recent album. "But, don't be fooled by thinkin' that the goods are not all there." Indeed, the goods are more than there. In her four-decade career, the 70-year-old superstar has charted 25 number-one hits, sold 100 million records and even opened her very own (enormously successful) theme park. Her frankly artificial beauty, from her platinum wigs to her Coke bottle figure, are just part of her ample charm. "People say, 'Are you offended by the dumb-blonde jokes?'" she joked on "The View." "And I say no, because I know I'm not dumb and I know I'm not blonde." The 9-year-old grew up in Sevier County, Tennessee with 11 brothers and sisters. "If we ever had any makeup in the house," her mother once told People of the budding beauty, "Dolly'd grab it first."
