Before and after [Rex/Elle US]
Pamela Anderson's had a serious makeover! The former Baywatch babe has swapped permatanned skin, skimpy swimwear and big BIG blonde locks for a much more subtle look.
The actress and model revealed her new look in this month's Elle US. A snap shows her standing on an outdoor staircase sporting a mauve knit and chic white skater skirt teamed with Kate Middleton-classic nude heels.
Pammie's hair- though still the most platinum of blonde - is chopped into a super short pixie cut and swept away from her face. Plus her make-up looks natural and elegant and her tan? A subtle golden bronze. She looks like a totally different woman.
'At first I thought I looked like Anderson Cooper or like a Q-tip or something,' Pammie told the magazine. 'But now I feel really powerful.'
'I have a friend who is an awesome, studly man, and he goes, ‘You know, some women cut their hair and it makes them look even more masculine, but you look even more feminine.’ I thought it would be weird having sex with short hair but then I kind of got into the mode.'
The 43-year-old who became famous for slipping into THAT red swimsuit to run down the Baywatch beach had a sexy but groomed look in the 90s, sporting body-con minis and Clueless style crop tops in pastel shades and fun textures. She spoke to Elle about how she went from that look to becoming a stereotype of herself.
'The hair, that rock-star kind of lifestyle, just living a dream. It kind of took over,' she said. 'It started out very innocent and then I turned into a cartoon character. And I started to feel like a cartoon character.'
