Here’s Pamela Anderson, arriving back at her hotel in NYC after lunch at The Smile. She’s carrying an Alaïa Laser-Cut Tote, which is a more formal bag option than I would expect to see on someone with her uber-casual personal style history. Pam has experienced a bit of a resurgence in the fashion industry as of late (she’s recently appeared in editorials for a slew of indie fashion mags, including CR Fashion Book), so perhaps she’s embracing it once again. Pam’s bag is not currently available online, but you can shop a lovely selection of Alaia handbags and shoes at Net-A-Porter.
“But wait,” you might say. “Isn’t that Alaïa bag made of leather?” Yes, most definitely. “And isn’t Pam Anderson kind of a major PETA-phile who has appeared in several anti-fur/anti-skins/anti-leather campaigns?” Yes, yes she is. And yes, it seems like a bit of a conflict of interest. But honestly, we could do an entire post on celebs who are really opposed to animal cruelty except when it comes to their designer handbags.
