Pamela and Brandon quickly became the talk of the town, with public reactions forming a spectrum of opinions. Brandon received universal praise for his suave looks, which echoed the charismatic legacy of his father, Tommy Lee.

“She didn’t even get her hair done?!” alerted one social media user, while another asserted, “It’s like she’s purposely trying to look dowdy!” Someone else wrote, “I applaud her ‘natural’ look…But there are natural makeup products…Hair? Be polite, fix up [the] hair a little better?”

Some responses were more critical, highlighting the contrast between the “Barb Wire” star’s iconic image and her current appearance. “She has spent her whole career trying to be glamorous. To see her looking like this is shocking, to say the least. She’s ready to go shopping down at the Walmart,” expressed a user.

Many also marveled at the striking resemblance between Brandon—who also shared pictures of the event on his Instagram—and Tommy, with comments like “Brandon looks a lot like his dad,” and “He looks like [his] dad but a better-looking version.”

Though there were many comments expressing dislike for Pamela’s choice to opt for a casual and less glammed-up look, her embrace of a more natural look is not a spur-of-the-moment decision but a reflection of her evolving perspective on beauty and self-presentation.

Additionally, people online have not been the only ones who wish Pamela would invest in a glam team as she admitted that her sons and agents have requested the same of her.

As much as her appearance at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party was less than satisfactory, Pamela, who is known for her iconic bleached blonde tresses, has embraced natural aging.

As previously reported, she once appeared with gray hair in a video posted to Instagram. Pamela, in a paid partnership with a laundry detergent brand called The Laundress, was seen with a fresh face devoid of makeup and had her gray locks pulled into a messy bun.

When the public saw the video of the 56-year-old, who has been dyeing her hair blonde since she was young, they gushed over her appearance.

One fan who was particularly impressed by what they saw gave props to Pamela for not shying away from the natural process of getting older and said, “I love how she is embracing aging.”

Other fans could not stop swooning over the “Barb Wire” star’s stunning looks and expressed, “She is so beautiful 🤩.” Another praised, “Amazingly beautiful 💜.”

Her recent appearance in this Instagram video is not the first time the “Baywatch” beauty has been seen rocking a stripped-down and natural look. In fact, most of her appearances, including the ones she did for her book tour, have been free of makeup.

Pamela said that in the past, she didn’t have much input concerning how she looked and just went along with what other people told her to do. With the passing of her favorite makeup artist, Alexis Vogel, Pamela felt it would be best to stop wearing makeup.

Of her new look, which she said has been “freeing, and fun, and a little rebellious” and embracing the change that comes with aging, Pamela divulged, “I think we all start looking a little funny when we get older. And I’m kind of laughing at myself when I look at the mirror.”

Pamela ended her statement by expressing that she finds herself in a good place in her life. The journey of embracing her new look has been a happy one.
