Pamela Anderson’s busted birthday outfit: dirty old lace curtain valance or not bad?

I’ll say something nice about Pamela Anderson to start this off – at least she hasn’t jacked her face up yet. She’s tried to cling to her youth with incredibly dated, heavy-handed makeup for years now instead of resorting to Botox and fillers like so many of her contemporaries. At least I think that’s the case. It’s hard to tell under all those layers of pink, black and orange.

In Pamela’s world it’s still 1994, she’s still on Baywatch at the height of her fame and she’s still in her late 20s. That’s the only way I can explain this outfit, that strut and that makeup and hair. Only Pamela just turned 44, which is what she’s celebrating here as we await her next nip slip. These photos are from a birthday party on Saturday in Vegas. (Although her actual birthday was July first.) She’s looking really hard and busted with those penciled in eyebrows and that super low-cut lace curtain valance dress, but again it’s nothing new from her. I like her shoes, but they need a sleeker dress and a more sophisticated look to pull off.


This reminds me of those “makeunders” that Oprah did last year. There was one Canadian mom who would go out of the house looking like a porn star, or basically like Anderson, every day. Oprah’s people redid her hair and makeup to make her look like a hot mom instead of a hooker and she claimed she liked it. I imagine the woman went right back out and tarted herself up again because she couldn’t stand the lack of attention. What I’m saying is that no style intervention with Anderson would ever work. Trying to get her to wear big people clothes would be like trying to get Hugh Hefner to ditch the robe and wear khakis. It’s not going to happen.


It was even worse from the back if you can believe it.

    Oww, don’t be so harsh on Pammy. I’ve always loved her. She seems like a nice person, a free spirit, a hippie mom who will evidently never change her wardrobe and/or make-up routine. She’s always looked like this, with heavy make up and slutty dresses, and it has always worked for her. I mean, you know, I would have put it away years ago if I was her, but then, I’m not an überplaymate like Pammy. So good for her.

  2. dorothy says:

    Slutty-sexpot look not working. You can’t keep cranking out the 20 yr. old look anymore. It’s over. Now it just looks desperate and cheap.

  3. aenflex says:

    bitch looks rough

  4. Laura says:

    Poor Pammie, she’s a rough looking 44.

  5. Kimble says:

    Oh come on, she has a great bod for 44 and has made a fortune out of looking trashy!!!

    I’ll bet she still dresses like this when she’s 70 and good luck to her …

  6. gillie says:

    Those SHOES!! I love them! (Any way to find out who makes them??)

  7. Cami says:

    God, that’s awful. Total mess. The hair, the makeup, her skin, the dress… My gosh, the dress! Gross. Barbie and Corpse Bride’s love child.
    BTW what are those bruises on her shoulder area?

  8. Anonymous says:

    Aside from her wonky implants, bitch is in amazing shape. If she toned down the make-up, brushed out her hair, & stopped wearing those Heatherette rags, she would look great.

  9. Hautie says:

    Oh my.

    When did Pamela have her gigantic implants removed? Those are not the same boobs she had last summer.

    Her old ones were so grossly over sized that I thought the skin between them was about to snap loose. And she was about to have a uni-boob. And they were all wonky and staring in different directions.

    These are much better sized to how tiny of a girl she is… so that is a positive.

    But that dress is a fashion, NO. I bet money she has alot of better items given to her. Why does she always wear the badly made things.

    And she is a pretty girl. Just alot of bad makeup. Too dated looking. And it is time to stop with the sharpie eyebrows. Everything just is a little harsh/hard looking.

  10. Violet says:

    I wish she’d realize how much better she’d look — at least a decade younger! — if she used less makeup and ditched her dated look.

  11. Cherry says:

    @Cami those ‘bruises’ are actually scars from her smallpox vaccinations, she’s had them all her life, you can even see them quite clearly on some of her Playboy shots.

  12. Steph says:

    You’re wrong. It’s better from the back because you can’t see her face. It scares me.

  13. Annie says:

    Pam’s actually a very good looking woman imo – but I think more people would be able to appreciate that if she got a more grown-up (not old) and sophisticated-looking makeover. She needs less fake tan, lose the shimmery clown makeup, lose the over-bleached pagent hair, find some *classy* clothes that suit her that she likes. This aging Barbie doll look is doing her NO favors at all. Pam probably thinks her look is keeping her young and it’s her trademark look; but it’s adding about 15 years.

  14. Goofpuff says:

    Wow her heavy hand with the makeup makes her look 60 not 44. A sleek sexy black dress would have been better not this ruffled pink monstrosity.

  15. Ron says:

    I love pam she is really a nice nice woman, but she’s in the fast lane to being Angelyne at this point.

  16. bagladey says:

    Cheap, grungy, tacky, too-small, straining, piece of mess dress. Pam looks low-low-budget.

  17. guilty pleasures says:

    She does strike me as a kind, fun person, who doesn’t take herself too seriously, and who is simply going to ‘dance with the lady what brung her,’ ie the sex kitten ticket to fame/attention.
    She really does no harm, and holy CRAP what a bod!!!

  18. Whatamess! says:

    her face’s just wrong!
    @Cami..damn..”the love child of corpse bride&barbie..that was inspired..

  19. theaPie says:

    The term ‘saucy wench’ comes to mind.

  20. fabgrrl says:

    I’ll just repeat what was said before. She really does have a great body. And her face would probably be fine without all that crap on it. I know the hate for Jennifer Aniston is strong on this board, but just imagine if Pam took a page from Jen in the makeup and clothing department. They are about the same age and both in great shape, but Pam could pass for Jen’s mother.

  21. Truthful says:

    she looks like a druggie in the face and eyes..she always seems so erratic.

    is she high??

    that’s her cheap princess look, LOL

  22. gillie says:


    Thanks for the info! I hope someone does knockoffs, because $895USD is a little steep.
    But man… those shoes are lust-worthy.

  23. Lady Satan says:

    It’s too bad she feels the need to apply her make-up by the shovelful because I think underneath it all she really IS aging well.

    She’s in great shape and I think with a less fake looking hair colour and more simple make-up she would really look fantastic.

  24. Ari says:

    I am really starting to think that I will keep my fat a$$ over a jacked up face. I seriously cannot imagine anyone wanting to wake up to that EGADS

  25. Heaven bound says:

    I have never noticed what a big forehead Pammy has!
    She has a tone of sun damage, I think this is the reason she seems to not have aged well. But she does have a banging body, you don’t see many women her age with that pair of legs.

  26. really says:

    She has GREAT LEGS or 44, and for her age she looks rather pretty. Perhaps she has had a bit of a hard-lifestyle… perhaps it wore on her.

    Pam still looks pretty + has a great body!

  27. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    Pam to me is looking a lot like Liz Hurley.

  28. dahlia1947 says:

    In those first two pics she looks scary, but in the one where she’s smiling, she looks ok.

    She looks better when she smiles.

    Smile more Pam! It takes me back to your Baywatch days!

  29. Lee says:

    Remember pictures of her a couple of years ago, with subtle makeup? She looked so young, and pretty. And not at all recognizable. This party look has become almost a celebrity caricature, one she uses to pay the bills.

  30. SoCalGal in FL says:

    Maybe she’s expected to look like this for paid appearances? I bet her fans love this look.

  31. Anonymous says:

    whats up w/ her and britney spears w/ the permanent dead eyes??

    extensions fail!

    the shoes are awesome…from the front only.

  32. yoohi says:

    whats up with folks like her and britney spears with the permanent dead eyes??

    extensions fail!

    her shoes are only cute from the front.

  33. Annie says:

    Such a great body. I wish a magazine or show would get her to let them do a makeover (or makeunder) that would still respect her sex kitten image. She might do it for national exposure. And maybe then she could see how much better she can look with more natural brows, more subtle make-up, better hair and dresss choices. As it is, she just looks harder and more jaded by the day.

  34. Onyx XV says:

    I admit I’m fond of Pam. She seems to mean well and does no harm, but WOW is she looking busted these days. I agree with all who’ve mentioned a makeover toward the more subtle would do wonders for her. It really would. Underneath the layers of cheapness, the beauty is still there.

  35. madpoe says:

    Courtney Love must have had a garage sale getting rid of her whore babydoll crap.

  36. original kate says:

    she looks like a pirate…all she needs is the eyepatch. yarrrrr!

  37. wunderkindt says:

    PA needs to check into fashion rehab.
    This dress is intervention-worthy.

  38. constance says:


    She looks like a 5 cent “Beater Barbie” you find at some old pack rat grandmother’s yard sale. You know, the one you tell your daughter no because it could be infested with something due to it’s dirty appearance.

    Oh yeah, that Hep C thing… So, yeah. Toss it back, we’ll buy a new model at Target for cheap.

  39. Judy says:

    She always goes for the slutty look, so for her it’s not bad. Anyone remember her when she used to be genuinely pretty and fresh and naturally sexy on Home Improvement? Pam, you didn’t need all the stuff you had done…you had it all and messed up what you had.

  40. Jaana says:

    I think she needs to start messing with her face cuz she looks fucked up!

  41. Amanda G says:

    I wish she would get a makeover too. She has had the same look for the past 15-20 years. I’m tired of the smokey eyes, thin eyebrows and big hair. Time to grow up Pam.

  42. Kim says:

    She looks awful. She is thin but not in shape at all.

  43. Jen34 says:

    I have a soft spot for Pam. I think she’s harmless, and she’s always been able to poke fun of herself. There are much more malevolent people to pick on.

  44. Anne de Vries says:

    Whoa. Look at that second photo. WHAT IS GOING ON WITH THE GUY IN THE BACKGROUND???

    Some major photo manipulation going on there somehow, but I can’t figure out what they were working on. I don’t *think* Pam has been altered in that photo – at least not as heavily as the background warp suggests.

  45. mk says:

    She still has a fantastic body. I wouldn’t dress like her at her age but different stroke for different folks!

  46. crtb says:

    That is her signature look: Sexy trashy.
    She is never going to change her look. This is what she is known for.

  47. eternalcanadian says:

    I can’t help but think Pamela would look pretty good if she would ditch the prostitute look and the caked on makeup. She’s not 24 anymore, she’s 44, and will be 50 in 6 years. Can’t escape time Mz. Pamela, and the more you tramp around looking like that the more you’re talked about like Hugh Hefner–with pity and derision.

  48. Anon says:

    Pam has been looking like this for years. I think that her natural face is refreshing in the day of the frozen cat-faces. Say what you will about how “hard” and “worn” she looks, but I think she looks alright. She looks way better than these women who run to the knife only to look fake and even older than they are. I say keep doing your thing, Pam!

  49. Mia says:

    GREAT SHAPE TRAGEDY – she’s in such excellent shape it only makes it sadder that something so wrong, namely her style, can come from something so right, namely her great physique. BOOB REDUCTION: well done Pammy! Those puppies look way more sqeezable!

  50. Mia says:

    SLEEPY BOTOX EYES: Pammy definitely looks like she has a sleepy Botox face that is batteling to pull itself onto an expression!

  51. Meg says:

    well of course she looks bad if your first two pictures are of her blinking. this is what tabloids use to tell people, ‘they’re on drugs, look dont’ they seem like they’re on something?’ we all look like that when we’re blinking. the last shot of her isn’t bad at all. her outfit, that’s something else

  52. Sage says:

    Call me crazy- I Like the dress! And I love me some Pamela! Hot wreck is right and I love every second of it. I’d wipe down the eyes too, but sure as shit I hope I look that good in 3 years!

  53. Twez says:

    She looks like an extra from Deadwood.

  54. Soandso says:

    Note on comment 1: Ha ha ha your readers are just as trashy as you are. P.S. of course Pam’s had work done – the botox just can’t keep up with all her drinking. Duh.

  55. coucou says:

    I loves me some Pammy, she just doesn’t give a F, she goes for what she likes, and she’s sweet about it. She reminds me of my sister, she and i have plenty of pics like these from our parties, and trust me, they are promptly deleted. I’d love to know her secret for avoiding the saggy knees, i think both Demi and Nicole had knee lifts, but i don’t think she has…

  56. Cinderella says:

    Clip on extensions. Boo!

  57. the original bellaluna says:

    If any of you have ever seen her sans fards, you know it ain’t pretty. (I’ll try to find a link after I post this.) EDIT: Okay, maybe it’s not that bad. But there’s some serious sun damage going on there. And I do believe she’s had some “face work” done. And here’s the link:

    I think her PERSONALITY is her best asset. She seems kind of down-to-earth, sweet (in a damaged kind of way), and she really loves her kids.

    The trashy has got to go, though. And I, too, covet those shoes. Shoes (especially boots) are my kriptonite.

  58. Snickers says:

    Now that’s a ho! And from the looks of all those marks on her, a diseased ho.

  59. VeneficA Delirium says:

    Her face has been surgically mutilated so many times that it’s been rendered into a permanent sneer and it has more lines on it than a Studio 54 mirror (thanks, Venture Brothers). Good job. Kim Kardashian, this is your future.

    I don’t feel strongly on her either way, because she has no personality. Like, at all. I “can’t hate” on someone so incapable of human expression, but I sure as hell can’t like them either.

    She seems needy for some reason. In my experience, most chicks who look and act as desperate as this one are the neediest of the entire bunch when they’re in a relationship and feel entitled to have their men whipped because “they’re hot”.

  60. Becky says:

    If you strip away the implants and the heavy make-up she’s a very pretty woman who looks good for her age in spite of some sun damage. I like the fact that she hasn’t gone the Botox and filler route. Plus, I give her alot of credit for coming forward about her Hep C diagnosis. In spite of the fact that it’s really not an uncommon disease there’s still alot of stigma. I think being open about it was very brave.

  61. RuddyZooKeeper says:

    Whoa! Tan lines and a dress busting at the seams! Did she look in a mirror before she walked out the door?

  62. WaityTaity says:

    Those aren’t smallpox scars or bruises – they are birthmarks. “Stork bite” type of birthmark that a lot of us have on the nape of our necks. I believe they are a type of hemangioma,”port wine stain” or
    “strawberry” birthmark.

  63. ZenB!tch says:

    I’m of two minds re: Pammy.

    She *is* a very nice and sweet lady. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting her twice and she was dressed normally as she was not “on”.

    She would not be “Pammy” if she dressed normally but at the same time, I blame her for how horrible and plastic the Playboy women look now. They used to be pretty girls who liked to strip now they look like women who would date The Sheen (not saying Pammy would go there).

    @madpoe – she’s no where near as bad as Hourtney Love. She’s not a bad mother or a known drug addict nor does she tweet her diseased looking nether regions for all to see. Very few people are Hourtney Love level. Not even LiLo… although she *is* trying.

  64. Ali NYC says:

    She is looking awesome. You guys are just jealous. Shame on ya all.

  65. rajat says:

    she is so hot i want to marry her are u marry me pamela
