OFFSTAGE: Kimberly Perry’s Tomboy + Feminine Style

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

The new issue of People Country is out, and I highly recommend you grab it and immediately turn to page 35 before you buy any more beauty products. Because you will definitely want to get at least a few of the items on Kimberly Perry’s (of The Band Perry) must-haves list. Like the Butter London nail polish in Full Monty. That’s the one in the cool rectangular bottle. And Kiehl’s Abyssine Lotion, which is like an anti-wrinkle miracle. And Davines Melu Conditioner, which Perry says is “marvelous for curly hair.” And even one drugstore find: Neutrogena Healthy Volume Waterproof mascara. All this from a woman who admits her style is one part tomboy and one part feminine and that her country icons are Dolly Parton, Loretta Lynn and Patsy Cline. “They had attitude and honed a unique appearance. And I love that old, blingy western wear,” Perry said. Unfortunately, she had no product recommendations for that old, blingy western wear. But I do: Get a western shirt and a BeDazzler, and see what you can come up with.
