Have you guessed who it is yet? It’s none other than the original Daisy Duke, Catherine Bach!

The 70-year-old actress was seen shopping in the Pacific Palisades, looking effortlessly chic in an all-black ensemble. She paired her relaxed look with a sleek black leather handbag, chic loafers, and her signature sandy blonde hair flowing freely. Dark sunglasses shielded her eyes as she gracefully navigated the upscale neighborhood to her parked car.

This outing comes nearly 45 years after Catherine became a global sex symbol as Daisy Duke. The CBS show, which first aired in 1979, starred Catherine alongside Tom Wopat, John Schneider, Denver Pyle, James Best, and Sorrell Booke. It ran for seven seasons until February 1985 and remained one of the highest-rated shows throughout its run.

Born on March 1, 1954, in Cleveland, Ohio, Catherine began her acting career in 1973 with a role in “The Midnight Man.” However, her audition for “The Dukes of Hazzard” was what truly launched her into stardom. Her performance so impressed the directors that they immediately cast her as Daisy Duke.

Her portrayal of Daisy Duke brought her immense fame, including a poster of her in character that sold five million copies. Her popularity soared to the extent that she reportedly insured her legs for a whopping $1 million.

Although Catherine has an impressive film and television resume, her role as Daisy Duke remains her most memorable.
