Although the former Playmate didn’t expect the positive reaction to her fresh-faced look, she loves knowing it struck a chord with audiences.
“I like that it resonated but it wasn’t my intention to…thinking everyone’s going to get into this thing,” she noted. “But as I noticed it was resonating, I thought, this is really great.[The beauty market] is full of false promises and false hope…accepting ourselves for who we are, it just feels necessary.”
Pamela’s new outlook on beauty comes after years of being pressured to look a certain way.
“It was kind of overwhelming, as a Playboy centerfold or Bunny, people had expectations,” she said of her ’90s bombshell image. “I feel much more sensual in my own skin. It’s much more intimate and vulnerable, kind of like…how your boyfriend sees you, without makeup. It’s almost sexier, I think.”
She continued, “I’ve been on this journey, from Playboy to Baywatch—all these Halloween costumes, I like to say—and now come back home to self-love and self-acceptance.”
