Pamela Anderson Went Natural Yet Again at the ‘Vanity Fair’ Oscars After-Party

We are forever inspired by the model and actress.

At this point, it’s no longer a surprise when Pamela Anderson steps out for a red carpet event in her best fashion and no makeup. The Canadian-American has made it part of her identity, really. She has declared no makeup “in,” and she’s following through with it, too.

In an interview with Elle a few months ago, she painted the decision as a tribute to her makeup artist, Alexis Vogel, who died in 2019. But she also labeled it as her form of rebellion against traditional (and often unrealistic) beauty standards. The decision has taken Anderson to the likes of Paris Fashion Week last fall, The Fashion Awards and the cover of Women’s Wear Daily, all glowing sans makeup.

All of which is to say, it wasn’t surprising when she stepped out on the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party red carpet in a stunning multi-colored floral floor-length gown, a simple, no-frills down-do and a completely bare face. Though it wasn’t surprising, it was still a totally refreshing—and inspiring—move from the 56-year-old.

For Anderson, it wasn’t just a phase or a one-time statement. It’s a lifestyle. She’s made as much clear with her continued dedication to showing up at elevated events exactly as she is: a natural beauty.

The Baywatch star attended the event on the arm of her son, Brandon Thomas Lee, 27, who looked suave in a dark gray suit and black bowtie. Needless to say, they were a good looking pair on the red carpet—and, we were yet again inspired by Anderson.
