Celebrity can be a double-edged sword and perhaps no one knows that better than Pamela Anderson, whose dubious fame has both enriched her and made her dependable fodder for the tabloids.
She’s been a Playboy bunny, a Baywatch hottie, a sex tape star. A Wrestlemania groupie, a celebrity vegan, and Borat’s muse. A DWTS near-miss, Hep-C poster girl, and perhaps the world’s most famous boob job. Oh, and the only person to spark a live fistfight at the VMAs.
Perhaps the best thing that can be said about Pammie is that she continually emerges from the calamity of her own life with a new focus and a determination to define herself beyond her sexpot typecasting. The results of those efforts — ie. her work with PETA and AIDS charities — are often as impressive as they are surprising, and probably go a long way toward restoring the karmic balance in her life.
Now, add to that utterly unique resume another new role for Canada’s sexiest export: cheerleader for the return of 50s-era nylon stockings.
Pam has teamed up with faux vintage label Secrets In Lace to create a signature stockings collection made with the same techniques and machinery used during the post-war period when nylons were every girl’s best friend.
Look for French heels, back seams and Pam’s logo on the welt in this glamorous collection of six styles. Colors include a pale pink, beige, black, copper, coffee and a very nice Swiss Dot pattern (shown above). All are made with 15-denier non-stretch nylon and range in price from $29-$39. There’s also an ultra-sheer style in a lighter 10-denier nylon.
For Secrets In Lace, the collab with Pam is a marketing coup that will bring plenty of attention to a brand that has done a lot to keep authentic vintage lingerie fashions in vogue.
And for Pam, the latest chapter in her life story puts her in some pretty good company: SIL also maintains a celebrity collection by burlesque diva Dita Von Teese and an exclusive tribute collection inspired by pinup queen Bettie Page.
