Dolly Parton interview

21 Aug, 2011

The Guardian interviews Parton about her signature look and how long it takes her to get ready in the morning.

[It doesn’t take Long] Not long, because I’m so programmed for it. First thing I do in the morning, after I have my breakfast and do my spiritual work, is put on my makeup and fix my hair, and I can do my makeup in 15 minutes.

I do have to watch it because I’m only about 5ft and you can’t hold on to too much weight when you’re so short. So I stay on a low-carb diet pretty much through the week and eat what I want on weekends. And of course, nothing matters on Thanksgiving and Christmas! Ha ha ha!

I do wear high heels in the house otherwise I can’t reach the cabinets! I don’t wear my heels in the shower or when I sleep and I wear my little tennis shoes when I do my treadmill but when I go out, of course I will. That’s my look and that’s how I’m always gonna be.
