Pamela Anderson on never wearing leather again: ‘I call myself a naughty vegan’

I decided to become vegetarian when I was a child. My father was a hunter and one day I found a dead deer, without its head, hanging outside our home, dripping blood into a bucket. I cried for days. It wasn’t hard for me to give up something so cruel. I got my father to stop hunting, too.

I call myself a naughty vegan. I live in France, I eat croissants. I do the best I can, but I’m not a dictator. It’s a radical choice to be vegan, so I’m not so strict. Stella McCartney and Paul and Linda created Meatless Mondays, so even if you don’t eat meat on Mondays, you are still doing something good. If you’re Canadian, like me, and grew up in the coastal areas, sometimes you think if you’re vegetarian, you can still eat fish.

You learn as you go along; you make changes. I once promoted a fur line in Russia, where the market is very real because of the weather. And Barb Wire was all leather – I just didn’t think of it at the time. Today I wouldn’t wear fur, and I don’t want to glamorise it by wearing faux, but it’s still better than wearing someone’s else’s skin. I sent faux fur coats to Melania Trump and Kim Kardashian, and both have sworn off fur since. On my sons’ modelling contracts now, it says no fur. They’re both vegan, too, but I never forced it on them.

I started with animals and moved to environmental causes with Vivienne Westwood. She and I are kindred spirits, and I’ve learned so much from her. Her message is more in-depth than the hashtag movement; you have to go further than that – we can control what we wear, what we eat. Fashion has so many new fabrics, recycled from the pollution in the ocean. You just have to be engaged with the world.

As for thinking you’ve done something because you’ve worn a slogan T-shirt or used a hashtag? You still have to take action. I’ve written to governments, delivered a petition to stop bullfighting and protested about foie gras in front of the French government.

I never thought I’d be a style icon. Early on in my career I wasn’t really a fan of clothes. I never thought much about the red swimsuit I wore on Baywatch. It was a beach show and I thought everyone was watching it for the message – it was sweet! I don’t think any of us was trying to act sexy. Maybe the producers had that in mind, but we weren’t thinking about it.

How I dress now is how I’ve always wanted to: in feminine, simple clothing, nothing hard-edged. I don’t like black; I love colours and dresses, and being comfortable. There was a time in my life when everyone was doing everything for me – even my husbands were dressing me. I don’t know where I am in my career. I was going to say I’m glad I’m at the end of it, so I don’t have to be in front of the camera for too much longer. But for the first time in my life I don’t have an army of people making decisions for me. I can finally decide for myself.

Pamela Anderson wants Prada to stop using fur

Pamela Anderson wants Prada to stop using fur
And she wrote a letter to Miuccia asking her personally

When she isn’t giving sex and relationship advice to Dazed readers, Pamela Anderson is a keen anti-fur advocate. As US Honorary Director for PETA, Anderson has campaigned for the end of fur use in fashion, and once pointedly sent Kim Kardashian a faux fur coat, in an effort to get her to stop wearing the real thing.

Now, Anderson has turned her attention to Prada, writing a letter directly to Miuccia Prada to ask her to make the Italian house fur-free. “I was disappointed to learn that instead of going fur-free, Prada has chosen merely to reduce the amount of animal pelts that it sells,” the letter reads. “Please, I urge you to drop fur immediately,” she continues.

Prada has yet to respond to Anderson’s letter, but conversations around fur use in fashion continue to gain momentum. Over the past year, Burberry, Versace, Tom Ford, Gucci have all vowed to stop using the controversial material. The British Fashion Council has also implemented measures to eradicate the use of fur during LFW.

Pamela Anderson and Adil Rami spark reconciliation rumors

She is reported to have split from her younger beau earlier this month.

But this week Pamela Anderson’s handsome former eau Adil Rami paid her a visit at her hotel in Paris.

The French soccer star was spotted arriving at the 51-year-old Baywatch beauty’s accommodations on Sunday night and emerging the next day.

Pamela was seen exiting the Collector’s Hotel minutes later with her dog Jojo and was dressed in a tight white tank top and leggings.

The mother-of-two was ready for her rehearsal for Danse Avec Les Stars later that day as she wore black dance heels.

Rami meanwhile was seen carrying an overnight bag with him as he entered the hotel the night prior.

After staying the night the Olympique de Marseille player emerged in a black T-shirt and striped pants with lace-up boots, the same outfit he had on the night before.

There were mixed reports on the cause of the couple’s split after a year of dating.

It was said that Pamela felt their romance was interfering with Rami’s obligations as a father.

The 32-year-old is dad to two-year-old twins Zayn and Madi with ex-girlfriend Sidonie Biémont.

A source explained to Page Six: ‘It broke Pam’s heart that he doesn’t see them enough, as he should, so she’s moving out… She is removing herself from his life so he can do the right thing and be with his kids.’

Another report claimed that Pamela split with the sportsman after Rami started discussing marriage.

Only recently Pamela and Rami were the subject of engagement rumors after she was spotted wearing a giant Cartier sparkler on her ring finger. Rami was forced to deny the reports.

According to TMZ Rami had presented Pamela with the diamond ring in a precursor to a proposal, following his World Cup triumph. Instead, she rejected his advances.
