Done up like Dolly

Country legend DOLLY PARTON is set to launch a cosmetics line so her fans will be able to copy her Barbie-doll look.

The well made-up singer / songwriter is hoping to share her cosmetics tips with fans, because she knows she's as well known for her look as her songs.

She tells Billboard magazine, "When I first came to Nashville, Tennessee I really was the backwoods Barbie - too much makeup, too much hair, the big boobs, country girl straight out of the mountains."

And that's not all Parton has planned. She's also penning the score for the upcoming Broadway musical version of 9 to 5 and she's working on an autobiographical musical and a weekly kids' TV show.
