Richie Rich (previously one half of the recently defunct Heatherette label) is due to show his latest A*Muse collection Wednesday. Unlike other designers who have had to squeeze their shows into tight time slots to fit in with Anna Wintour's hectic schedule, Rich has slated his show to work around men's figure-skating during the Olympic games. Strange as this might seem, Rich explains, "I was a figure skater, and lots of my fans are also huge fans of the sport, so I didn't want to make them choose between my show and the Games."
The forthcoming collection, according to Richie, is inspired by "the beach meets the streets. It's resort meets graffiti and break dancing - that kind of thing," and will see Pamela Anderson thrown into the mix, naturally. The ex-Baywatch babe will once again be taking to Rich's runway, though we're not too sure what she will be sporting considering the show is entitled "Hot for Teacher". We can, however, imagine that there will be several inches of Ms Anderson's tanned and taut skin on show.
Joining up with close friend Richie Rich, Pamela Anderson will launch her debut single 'High', and before any drug connotations spring to mind, it's about high fashion. "We are recording a pop single together," Rich confirms. "Pam says she wants to sing, but nothing too difficult, so she's just going to sing the word 'high' over and over."
Pammy will also model A*Muse, the clothing line that the pair are launching at Fashion Week in February, while ex Tommy Lee will spin on the decks. Looks like 2010 will be a busy year for the Baywatch babe...
Pamela Anderson was ready to pump up the jams (pump it up) at the Life Ball in Vienna this weekend, when 40,000 people came out in support of HIV/AIDS charities. It's rare to find Bill Clinton at the same event as Eva Longoria and Roisin Murphy, but such is the world of fundraising.
Perhaps Kristopher Houser of the New York Times recounts the weekend best: "It's not every day that I get to share a flight with Amanda Lepore, Amber Valletta, Fran Drescher, Richie Rich and Ivana Trump! I even got to play a midflight game of truth or dare with the singer Katy Perry — and if one of us kissed a boy, I'm not telling."
Let's be serious: Some eco-friendly clothes are about as fashion-forward as low-fat cheese is tasty. It can be done, but as Harvey Nichols Buying Director Averyl Oates said last week, "that's just not what I think of...sorry."
Enter former Baywatch Babe and suddenly ubiquitous fashion devotee Pamela Anderson. Pam has announced plans to collaborate with her designer friend Ritchie Rich (of Heatherette) on a line of vegan clothes and footwear. The new Muse label will offer hoodies, skirts, bathing suits and leather-free shoes, and you can expect it out this summer.
Someone who's been flashing her pants on the runway just this season - and who's had anything to do with Tommy Lee - definitely won't make this one boring.
