Classy and elegant are not words you would typically use to describe Pamela Anderson – but surely she would know that at a prestigious art show, underwear is inappropriate attire.
The former Baywatch star caused a stir when she arrived at one of the most important art exhibitions in the U.S., Art Basel Miami Beach, wearing a pair of orange and black patterned underpants.
Known for wearing as little as possible, Anderson at least covered the top half of her modesty, with a grey off-the-shoulder t-shirt.

Anderson enjoyed playing up to the cameras as she seductively bent over paintings, with her bottom and pink high heels in the air.
But when it came to accessories, the 41-year-old was in keeping with the art theme, as she held a Campbell’s Soup handbag clutch – a hint to the work of art produced by Andy Warhol in the 1960s.
Anderson was joined by Paris Hilton at the annual week-long art fair to view the work of fashion photographer and film director David LaChapelle.

LaChapelle’s exhibition ‘Jesus Is My Homeboy’ featured a series of surreal and sometimes humorous images of models posing with Jesus.
The American artist, with his characteristic boyish cap tilted to the side, was yesterday eager to show the bare-legged Anderson around Art Basel at the Miami Beach Convention Center.
During the tour, the ex-Playboy covergirl reached out to hug a photograph of herself.

Anderson recently signed a six-figure deal to be the new face of British designer Vivienne Westwood and will front her spring/ summer outfits campaign next year.
She met the designer at a party last year, and it is believed Westwood loves her ‘quirkiness’.
Art Basel is an exclusive selection of more than 250 leading art galleries from North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia and Africa.
