Dolly Parton kick-starts a cold-shoulder trend to get the vaccine

Dolly Parton is in a celebratory mood and dressing accordingly.

The beloved singer, bleached-blonde bouffant and all, wore a sparkling violet top yesterday to get her COVID-19 vaccine, specifically the Moderna shot.

She even intro’d the moment with a remix of “Jolene”: “Vaccine, vaccine, vaccine, vaccine, I’m begging of you please don’t hesitate.”

The 75-year-old dressed strategically to get the jab, opting for a clingy top with clever shoulder cutouts along with matching cutoff gloves and a purple mask.

It seems that Parton may be starting a trend with her cold-shoulder top.

Hillary Clinton took note and posted an archival image of herself from The New York Times wearing a turtleneck dress with exposed shoulders.

The look has also appeared on recent runways, albeit not directly tied to getting a shot. A.W.A.K.E Mode featured Breton-stripe shirts with shoulder cutouts for fall 2021, while Bevza showed a knit with a big ole cutout down the arm on a poncho and Phillip Lim designed an artfully hole-ridden cream turtleneck.

While Parton isn’t the only one dressing up to get the shot—designer Marc Jacobs wore hot pink pants for the occasion—her look added a bit of sassy flair to the very clinical process.

Hopefully, it will also encourage others to get out and get vaccinated.
