text in the video — Over 9.5 million views — says, “This clip totally convinced me of the flesh-colored glove theory.”
And it didn’t take long for commenters to share their own theories as to why she’s wearing these gloves. Some people
Others have speculated that it might have something to do with covering up tattoos and scars:
Either way, the fact of the matter is that Dolly Parton wears gloves on her hands.
In a 2017 interview with Vanity Fair, Dolly was asked about her tendency to often wear long sleeves, to which she admitted to getting tattoos to hide her scars. She said, “I tend to have keloid scar tissue, and if I have some kind of scar somewhere, I tend to have a purple tint that can never be removed. [tattoos] It’s all pastel and meant to hide blemishes. I’m not trying to make a big, bold statement,” she said. Said vanity fair.
But Dolly’s creative director Steve Summers, Said Instyle Way back in 2019, Dolly wore fingerless gloves simply as a matter of personal preference. When asked about Dolly’s hands in particular, Summers told InStyle:[They ask] “What happened to her hands?” She’s 73 and doesn’t like them. It’s about normal women. ”
We found a close-up of her hands on Getty, which looks like she’s been gloved since 2008. her hands are perfect.
Then I found a picture of her hand in November 2022.
I’m not sure if she’s wearing gloves here, but if she isn’t, her hands are aging backwards!!!
Either way, Dolly actually wears gloves — including bare ones — a lot.
Bottom line, she couldn’t wear it for all or none of the above reasons.
