Catherine Bach became a global sex symbol while starring as the stunning Daisy Duke in the popular action-comedy series The Dukes of Hazzard back in the late 70s and 80s Рbut on Sunday, the 68-year-old actress swapped her iconic hotpants for workout pants as she stepped out for some retail therapy in Los Angeles. 

Nearly four decades have passed since the hit show ended, but Bach’s legacy as on-screen siren Daisy lives on – as does the popularity of the teeny tiny shorts that she was famous for wearing, so much so that many still refer to denim hotpants as ‘Daisy Dukes’ to this day.¬†

But the infamous shorts were nowhere to be seen as Bach enjoyed a sun-filled outing over the weekend, when she was pictured sporting an all-black workout wear ensemble as she paid a visit to high-end grocery store Erewhon. 

Instead of Western-inspired fashion and thigh-skimming shorts, Bach opted to cover up in a pair of skintight leggings, which she paired with a long-sleeved black T-shirt, despite the bright LA sunshine.

The actress, who has made several other on-screen appearances since The Dukes of Hazzard came to an end in 1985, accessorized her look with some large sunglasses, a pair of chunky black sneakers, and a cross-body phone case that housed her iPhone. 

She had a pair of glasses tucked into the collar of her T-shirt and wore her dark blonde locks in loose waves around her face, choosing to go makeup-free for her Sunday stroll. 

Bach looked as though she may have been preparing for a workout, given her sporty ensemble Рand the bottle of water she was pictured carrying as she was pictured outside of the luxury organic grocery store.
