Her character Daisy can be seen racing around with her cousins and is usually portrayed as kind and honest, but overly-trusting, which can sometimes land the family in trouble.

The other thing that her character is most known for is her outfit - specifically the skimpy denim shorts she wore on the show, which were subsequently dubbed “Daisy Dukes”.

The star led the “Daisy Dukes” trend almost 40 years ago, which saw many wanting to replicate her look.

Dukes of Hazzard: Hazzard in Hollywood was a hit for CBS, even becoming one of the network’s top rated shows during its initial seasons.
