Dolly Parton sparkles in three different elaborate outfits as she hosts the 57th Academy of Country


Dolly Parton wowed in no less than four striking ensembles while hosting the 57th Academy of Country Music Awards on Monday at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada. 

Yet rather than making the ceremony about herself, the 76-year-old singer said in her opening monologue that she was dedicating the show to Ukraine, asking people to send their prayers to those affected by Russia’s invasion.

‘I love to laugh, I love to joke, and we’re going to have a good time tonight, but I do want us before we get started with all our fun to take a serious moment,’ she said while on stage. 

Dolly continued: ‘Now I don’t want to be political and this is not. I’d rather pass a kidney stone than do that, but I want us to send our love and hope to our brothers and sisters in Ukraine.’

‘So why don’t we just dedicate this entire show to them and pray for peace around this crazy old world?’ she asked the crowd.

Dolly then set to work parading her incredible ensembles at the show, and first took the stage in a low-cut glass mosaic skin-tight bodysuit that showed off her ample cleavage, trim waist, and toned legs, as she opened up the show.

The iconic Jolene singer was honored during the ceremony by Kelly Clarkson, who paid tribute to her with a touching performance of I Will Always Love You, which was written and recorded by Dolly in 1973, and made world famous by Whitney Houston’s rendition for the soundtrack of The Bodyguard.

As for makeup, she wore a light shade of lilac eyeshadow, black eyeliner, a dash of mascara and a lovely shade of pink lipstick.

She also wore a lovely low-cut and asymmetrical light yellow gown, with shimmer sequin details throughout, which she paired with open-toe gold heels.

Before her performance, she switched into a trendy long-sleeve yellow suede top, and accessorized the look with a beautiful silver and blue necklace.
