Jessica Simpson, who rose to fame as Daisy Duke in the 2005 movie Dukes of Hazzard, recently made a revelation that has delighted fans of the iconic film.
She admitted to People Magazine that she still owns a collection of denim shorts that she wore while playing Daisy Duke. Here are the key points of the story, broken down by subheadings.
A fashion statement that defined an era
Daisy Duke, the character played by Catherine Bach in the original 1980s TV series, was famous for her denim cut-off shorts.
The style became so popular that it was named after her, and when the movie adaptation came around, Jessica Simpson took over the role, bringing her own charm and sex appeal to the character.
Her wardrobe in the movie, particularly the shorts, became an instant fashion statement that defined an era.
In the recent interview, Simpson revealed that she still owns many pairs of the same shorts that she wore in the movie.
She joked that she is a “connoisseur” of the Daisy Duke look and always wears denim shorts and platforms. Simpson’s love for the style is evident in the fact that she has a “ridiculous number” of hot pants in her wardrobe.
Simpson’s love for fashion is not limited to denim shorts. In fact, she founded her eponymous apparel brand, the Jessica Simpson Collection, in 2005, the same year Dukes of Hazzard was released.
She recently wore a pair of distressed Daisy Dukes for the ad campaign of her Spring/Summer collection, which she shared on Instagram.
In the photos, she was seen wearing her collection’s white puffed-sleeve Aubrey top and iridescent pink platform Camisha heels.
A mother passing on her legacy
Simpson is now a mother of three, and her oldest daughter, Maxwell, has already started stealing some of her favorite pieces.
In the interview, Simpson revealed that Maxwell has outgrown her mother’s shoe size, but she is hoping that her youngest daughter, Birdie, will one day get to devour the collection she has saved instead.
Simpson also shared that she has become more secure and confident with age and is leaning into the free-spirited version of herself.
“Dukes of Hazzard” might have come out in 2005, but it is still a cultural touchstone for many people.
Simpson’s recent revelation that she still owns the iconic Daisy Dukes has reignited interest in the film and has brought back memories of a time when fashion was all about denim shorts, cowboy hats, and car chases.
For fans of the movie, this news is a reminder of how much it means to them and how much it has influenced popular culture.
