Written by Parton alongside Holly George-Warren and curated by Rebecca Seaver, the book features behind-the-scenes stories from Parton’s life and career, including the largest reveal of her private costume archive, and spotlights her iconic looks from the 1960s to now, from sky-high heels and famous wigs to bold makeup and eye-catching stage clothes.
Along the way, she discusses memorable outfits from her past, from the clothes her mother would sew out of feed sacks (including her “Coat of Many Colors”) and the bold dresses and hairdos that shook up Nashville, to the bunny suit on the cover of Playboy, evening wear at Studio 54, costumes from her most famous film and TV roles, and the styles that continue to entertain and inspire today.
“I am happy, proud, and excited to present my book Behind the Seams to the public,” says Parton. “It is my hope that you will enjoy a look at my life in costume and hair, and get to know some of the great people who have helped shape my life and my look. Enjoy!”
Behind the Seams: My Life in Rhinestones is the second book in a trilogy that began with the 2020 bestseller Songteller: My Life in Lyrics. The book will also be available as an audiobook read by Parton from Penguin Random House Audio, including archival audio and music.
