As Hollywood and millions of fans settle in on the passing of actress Florence Henderson, we thought it would be an appropriate tribute to the 82-year-old icon by featuring some of her most memorable, iconic, and fashionable looks over the many years she worked in entertainment.

Henderson was born in 1934 in Indiana, the youngest of 10 children. She grew up in relative poverty, with an alcoholic father and a mother who left the family. Despite those humble and tough beginnings, Henderson grew up with ambition and departed at the age of 17 to New York City with dreams of becoming a star on stage and screen.

 

It wasn't long after that Henderson began to work on stage and eventually television where she landed her most famous role as Carol Brady on "The Brady Bunch." Throughout her career she displayed a charm, grace, and wit that endeared her to generations of fans.

Henderson passed away on November 25, 2016 of heart failure.
