Original Dukes of Hazzard star Catherine Bach looked unrecognizable out in LA, years after coming to fame.

The 70-year-old shot to superstardom thanks to her role as Daisy Duke in the beloved series, which first hit our screens in 1979.

The program, also starring Tom Wopat, John Schneider and Denver Pyle, ran for seven seasons until 1985 – Johnny Knoxville, Jessica Simpson and Seann William Scott appeared in the 2005 film adaptation.

Although she was known for rocking those iconic short shorts, Catherine swapped them for something a little more chic while running errands this week.

In new pictures, the actress donned a long-sleeve black jumper, paired with smart trousers and embellished shoes.

She clutched her phone and a pair of glasses in her hands as she strolled, completing the look with oversized sunglasses.

The star has previously starred in Hustle, Crazed, Strange New World and Murder in Peyton Place, but it was the Dukes of Hazzard that transformed her into a household name.

It focused on the Duke cousins and their adventures on their family farm in Georgia – as they found themselves at the center of wild escapades, while trying to escape the attention of officer Boss Hogg (Sorrell Brooke).

The series became hugely popular and spanned more than 100 episodes during the original run, before ending in February, 1985.

Director Jay Chandrasekhar released a film version two decades later, with Seann, Jessica, Johnny and Burt Reynolds in the main roles.

Catherine continued working after the Dukes of Hazzard ended, with roles in African Skies, Monk, Hawaii Five-O and the Young and the Restless.

However, she previously sent fans into a spin when she revealed that she is still close to her former co-stars, while teasing a possible reunion.

‘John and Tom are family,’ she told Fox News Digital last year. ‘I love them both so much and always love to catch up with them. It’s a lot of laughs when we gather.

‘We have so much history and know everything about each other. Well, pretty much everything.

‘The secret to our long friendship is caring. We have seen each other through the good times and sad times. … I do count on my TV cousins, and I think they know they can always count on me.’

Touching on a future reboot, she added: ‘Anything is possible.’
