While millions of fans are mourning the untimely death of writer, producer, and screen icon Carrie Fisher, her mother, movie legend Debbie Reynolds, passed away on Wednesday — just one day after her daughter died. Reynolds was 84 years old. “She’s now with Carrie, and we’re all heartbroken,” Todd Fisher — Reynolds’s son and Fisher’s brother — told the Associated Press from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
In a tragic turn of events, Hollywood legend Debbie Reynolds succumbed to a fatal stroke on Wednesday at age 84, just a day after her daughter, actress Carrie Fisher, died of complications from a heart attack. Reynolds first made a splash on the big screen when she was cast opposite Gene Kelly in the classic film Singin’ in the Rain. In a career that spanned nearly seven decades, Reynolds lent an enthusiastic flair to numerous movies, including How the West Was Won, The Unsinkable Molly Brown, and, in recent years, the HBO sensation Behind the Candelabra.The petite Reynolds was known for her bright, wholesome image, as well as her fierce acting chops, which earned her Oscar, Emmy, and Tony nominations and a Screen Actors Guild Award, among other honors. But Reynolds’ greatest role might have been that of survivor. “I’ll keep singing and dancing until I’m too old to stand up,” she said. She also worked tirelessly to preserve Hollywood memorabilia, making sure items such as the dress Marilyn Monroe wore in The Seven-Year Itch and Charlie Chaplin’s ubiquitous hat were housed safely in museums.Despite a prolific career and legions of adoring fans, Reynolds didn’t have an easy life. She famously battled with her late daughter Fisher (who chronicled the pair’s rocky relationship and temporary estrangement in the book-turned-movie Postcards from the Edge), was betrayed by her first husband, Eddie Fisher, and close friend Elizabeth Taylor, and lost her fortune when it was gambled away by second husband Harry Karl. Through it all, Reynolds carried herself with style and grace, and her beaming image is etched in the memories of the millions who adored her.As we mourn the loss of another legend, let’s take a look back at some of Reynolds’ most memorable looks throughout the years.More: 8 Things All Millennials Need to Know About Debbie Reynolds Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest, for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.

Actress Carrie Fisher, who passed away Tuesday morning, was legendary for her role as Princess Leia in the Star Wars movies. When George Lucas, the filmmaker and creator of Star Wars, was questioned by Time back in 2002 about the unique hairstyles in his movies, he responded: “In the 1977 film, I was working very hard to create something different that wasn’t fashion, so I went with a kind of Southwestern Pancho Villa woman revolutionary look, which is what that is.
The world is mourning the loss of iconic, beloved actress and writer Carrie Fisher. Fisher passed away on Dec. 27 following a heart attack she suffered the previous week. She was 60.As the Hollywood Reporter put it: “A child of Hollywood royalty, Fisher carved out her own idiosyncratic career, enjoying her biggest onscreen popularity as Leia in the original Star Wars trilogy before going on to establish herself as an acerbic, truth-telling writer with such books as Postcards From the Edge.”And while she is clearly best and most widely remembered for her role as Leia in the Star Wars franchise, Fisher had an extensive and diverse career in film and TV, starting when she was just 15. She both reflected the times and walked her own distinctive path, carrying her roles and appearances with style and power all along the way.Let’s take a look at some famous steps and perhaps some forgotten steps along the road of her life and career through pictures from the ’70s, ’80s, ’90s, 2000s, and more recent years.Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.
“I tell my younger friends that no matter how I go, I want it reported that I drowned in moonlight, strangled by in my own bra,” wrote the great Carrie Fisher in her memoir Wishful Drinking. Fisher died Tuesday, Dec. 27, at the age of 60 following a massive heart attack suffered while traveling from London to Los Angeles on Friday, Dec. 23.

Carrie Fisher is fed up with people body shaming her because (shocker!) she doesn’t look exactly like she did 35 years ago. “My body is my brain bag, it hauls me around to those places and in front of faces where theres something to say or see,” she continues. “I get really protective over Carrie Fisher because nerds will go on and on about how cool and great Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford still are, but they’ll always be like, ‘Carrie Fisher sure didn’t age well, huh,’,” the post reads.
