Country music legend Dolly Parton ignited an internet sensation this week by sharing four vastly different photos which she thought would best represent the versions of herself most apt for different social media sites.
‘Get a good woman who can do it all,’ Parton captioned the post, which referenced Linkedin for business, the family-friendly Facebook, aesthetic-driven Instagram and the ever-saucy Tinder (the notorious dating app).
Dubbed the ‘Dolly Parton challenge’, since the meme gained momentum, Halle Berry, Sharon Stone and Celine Dion are now among a slew of celebrities to share their own collages, sometimes with hilarious results.
Four sides of Halle: Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry is among a slew of celebrities who joined in on the Dolly Parton challenge
Berry looks all business in a suit and tie and studious glasses, with her short hair for Linkedin. She showed her soft side by snuggling up with her pet pooch along the beach for the family-friendly Facebook.
For Instagram, the actress flashed a sultry look while decked out in an off-the-shoulder dress in a black-and-white photo; and her sense of humor came through in the Tinder snap, by puffing out her cheeks like a blow fish.
Parton sparked the viral sensation with her collage in a January 21 post, two days after celebrating her 74th birthday.
The songstress showed herself as a smart-looking businesswoman for LinkedIn; relaxed in her signature platinum blonde bouffant and a Dolly Christmas sweater for Facebook; a black-and-white photograph of herself holding a guitar for Instagram; and in the dating app Tinder, she posed as a Playboy bunny in a black bustier.
