Dolly Parton Recreates Her 1978 Playboy Cover Photo
Gotta Love Her!
Dolly Parton celebrated her husband’s birthday by recreating her iconic Playboy cover released in October 1978. The 75-year-old music legend wore a black strapless leotard layered, crystal fishnet bodysuit, fingerless evening gloves, a pink and white bowtie, and of course, a pair of black bunny ears. It didn’t take long for it to go viral.
“You’re probably wondering why I’m dressed like this,” she said. “Well, it’s for my husband’s birthday. Remember some time back I said I was gonna pose on Playboy magazine when I’m 75? Well, I’m 75 and they don’t have a magazine anymore, but my husband always loved the original cover of Playboy.”
“I was trying to think of something to do to make him happy,” she added. “He still thinks I’m a hot chick after 57 years and I’m not gonna try to talk him out of that.”
She did a photo shoot for her husband, Carl Dean. She showed her 1978 photo and said she was “kind of a little butterball.”
“Well, I’m string cheese now,” she quipped. “But he’ll probably think I’m cream cheese, I hope.”
It was back in March 2020 when she shared her plan of being on the cover of Playboy magazine again at 75.
