The Saga of Pam Anderson’s Pint-size “Fashion Slave”
In a desperate attempt to regain any ounce of celebrity she once had, Pamela Anderson and cohorts came up with a genius plan involving a little girl, a red carpet and the train of Pam’s gown. Sadly, I think it’s only made everyone more aware that Pam Anderson is not the sex symbol she once was back in the days of Playboy, beaches and red bathing suits.
There are a lot of things about Pam’s appearance at the Hollywood Style Awards to take issue with. Of course, the little girl carrying the train is the most bizarre, but how about the dress itself? I mean, let’s start there. From the front it can almost pass for a dress. Barely, it gets by. Once she turns around you realize she basically pulled the comforter off her bed, ripped it up, scrunched it in the back, added a couple awkward straps and walked out of the house. I can’t decide which is the bigger mess: the dress or the person wearing it.
And now to the aforementioned train-carrying “slave girl.” Obviously, I don’t think the girl was ensalved in any sense of the word, nor did the stunt violate any sort of child labor laws. That’s all hullaballo. And I’m sure she probably had a good time literally following in the footsteps of Pam (eek! a parent’s worst nightmare) and meeting celebrities, just like her mom said she did.
What I find most troubling is that all this happened at an awards show celebrating style. The irony is off the charts. There could not have been a less stylish person than Pam Anderson in attendance that night.
