- Story Text: Former Baywatch star Pamela Anderson was the surprise celebrity model at Paris Fashion Week on Friday (March 6), after becoming Vivienne Westwood's latest muse.
"She's a very engaged and caring person and very clever and has just got this generosity ... maybe that's why she is like she is,"
Westwood said, as Anderson and the models prepared for the show backstage.
The audience at the warehouse in Paris was also shining with celebrities including the Peaches Geldof, daughter of Bob Geldof, and American singer Beth Ditto of The Gossip.
"I don't think you can separate them," Ditto said of the link between the worlds of music and fashion.
"It's a really funny thing. I don't think you can and the harder you try the more it becomes a fashion, do you know what I mean? So that's how I feel. But I fucking love it. I don't care what everybody else does, I love this. I feel like a kid in a candy store," she said.
Fabrics in the collection included felted wools, shrunken lace, distressed velvet, light wool seersucker tartan and Prince of Wales check, along with traditional satins and silk.
Designs were often cloaked in two or three metres of fabric.
Anderson strutted the catwalk several times - in outfits including a dress with tutu attached, then later in a t-shirt and short-shorts with knee-high socks.
Westwood's shows are often shadowed by her opinions on culture and politics. This one was labelled +5 degrees to highlight the rising temperatures due to global warming.
At London Fashion Week, last month, Westwood's unruly schoolgirl-inspired Red Label collection was the notable rebel in a series of shows that have reined in the lavish excesses of the past few years.
