We’re in love with a little girl in Tennessee who has the perfect Dolly Parton look! Stella Ruby, six, is a huge fan of the legendary country singer, songwriter, and actress. Her favorite song is “Jolene,” which she sings whenever she gets the chance. When her school announced a “book character day,” she grabbed her favorite book — about Dolly, of course — from her shelf and asked her mother to assist her in creating the perfect Dolly look.
“We love dress-up days,” Dana explained to GMA. “We like to have fun with them and go above and beyond to fuel our creativity.” We enjoy making our own things a lot.” Dolly is known for her glamorous, rhinestone-studded look, so mother and daughter got to work right away, choosing a sparkly star dress from Stella Ruby’s wardrobe and pairing it with gold leggings, a big blonde wig, and a miniature guitar.”I chose Dolly because I like her a lot and it’s a fun thing to do,” Stella Ruby explained.
When you have a cool shiny dress, who needs a “Coat of Many Colors”? Dana and her daughter were overjoyed with the results of their labor, and Dana couldn’t help but laugh as the child walked into school with her guitar in hand. She posted a TikTok video of Stella Ruby dancing to the song “9 to 5”. “I love making videos, so I just started recording her walking into school and threw some music on there, and I couldn’t stop laughing,” she explained, adding, “[It’s] just a normal mom thing to share.
“Stella Ruby’s Dolly impersonation has officially gone viral, with millions of views! Dana’s entire goal, she says, was to “make some people laugh,” so mission accomplished! Don’t you think Dolly’s mini-me is almost as cute as the icon herself? This story has us saying, “‘I Will Always Love You,’ Stella Ruby!” If you agree, please share.
