Pamela Anderson was turning heads for a much different reason than usual at an April 15 event for the Obliphica Professional hair care line, showing up in minimal makeup, an elegant updo, and a high-necked black sheath dress with nary a boob showing.
The 45-year-old, who has two children with rocker Tommy Lee, said she felt it was “time” for a change from her typical sexy attire.
“You know, you grow up and you change your look. I feel different from how I did in my Playboy days,” she told Buzzfeed. “Now, I think I’m in charge of toning down my look or not. I feel like as I’m getting older, this is my version of toned down.”
Oddly, when the woman who’s been on the cover of Playboy more than anyone else in history was asked about being beautiful, she said, “Oh, god, I don’t know if I ever really felt beautiful. I always feel like I don’t — I don’t, really.”
Still, she’s a lifelong fan of glamour, and talked about fighting for it during her days on ‘Baywatch.’
“Sometimes my [false] eyelashes would roll up onto the beach and that’s all that would be left of me,” she laughed. “But I was determined to be glamorous. Oh, I loved it, I LOVED it. I thought, ‘If you’re going to be on TV, and if you’re gonna be out and glamorous, the natural look can stay at home. If we’re gonna do this, let’s have fun with it!”
Those sentiments aren’t really surprising when you know who she listed as beauty and fashion role models: Sophia Loren, Brigitte Bardot, Ursula Andress, Raquel Welch, Marilyn Monroe and Dita Von Teese.
Sounds like she has her head in the right place — and it’s a welcome change. She looks amazing.
