All the times Debbie Reynolds epitomized old Hollywood glamour

The world is mourning the loss of Hollywood icon Debbie Reynolds. The star passed away on Wednesday, a day after her daughter, Carrie Fisher, died. She was 84.

Debbie was the epitome of a classic Hollywood star.

The actress and singer began her career in 1950s when she was just 18. She went on to star in "Singin in the Rain" two years later. That same year, she was nominated for an Oscar for her role in "The Unsinkable Molly Brown". Her career spanned 7 decades.

People were drawn to Debbie's magnetism on and off the stage. The acclaimed actress was a historian as well, notable for a particular interest in film fashion and memorabilia. Her collection included the ruby slippers from "The Wizard of Oz", Marilyn Monroe's infamous white dress and Audrey Hepburn's costumes from "My Fair Lady".

While she loved to relive Hollywood's Golden Age, she was also one of its faces.
