See The Gorgeous Babe That Made Daisy Dukes Famous

Catherine Bach played the famous role of Daisy Duke on the televisions series The Dukes of Hazzard.Even though the producers of the Dukes of Hazzard were looking for a Dolly Parton lookalike, she was hired on the spot when she walked into audition for the part of Daisy Duke.

One of the earliest costume ideas from the producers was that she wear a tight white turtleneck, go-go boots and a poodle skirt, but Bach asked if she could bring her own outfit. It was a homemade T-shirt, a pair of cut-off denim shorts and high heels.

She had concerns about the appropriateness of the cut-off shorts at first, saying she could not wear them in a restaurant scene, but when prompted by the producers to visit a restaurant across the street, Catherine found the waitresses were wearing “little miniskirts that matched the tablecloths!”.

This style of cut-off denim shorts are now popularly known as “Daisy Dukes” in reference to Bach’s character of that name from the show.
