Fans praise Pamela Anderson for going make-up free at Oscars after she ditched glam for sad reason

They congratulated the Hollywood A-lister

Fans have praised Pamela Anderson for going make-up free at the Oscars after she ditched her signature glam look for a heartbreaking reason.

The 56-year-old Baywatch star wowed at the Vanity Fair afterparty following the 96th Academy Awards last night (10 March).

She donned a stunning floral, floor-length dress that featured yellow and purple flower motifs with her blonde locks falling loosely by her shoulders.

Fans have since rushed to social media to share their praise for the Hollywood icon going make-up free, with one X user writing: "She looks amazing!"

"Beautiful!" gushed a second, while a third echoed: "Wow beautiful!"

A fourth chimed in: "She looks great!"

"She is so naturally stunning," echoed a fifth, "like how do people just look like this?"

"Such a babe!" added another, while a final X user commented: "Pam Anderson will Always be BEAUTIFUL!"

Damn straight.

This is by no means the first time the actor has gone makeup-free, as she was also seen without any beauty products during Paris Fashion Week last autumn (28 September) and at the 2023 Fashion Awards red carpet a couple months back (4 December).

The icon has regularly rocked a glowing bare-faced look and, while it shouldn't be a big deal whatsoever if celebs decide to wear makeup or not during public events, it's clear it's sadly very much not the norm.

Pamela previously opened up about the reason as to why she's scaled back her signature bombshell makeup look, telling Elle Magazine last August that it came shortly after a huge personal loss.

After losing her close friend and makeup artist, Alexis Vogel, to breast cancer in 2019, Pamela made the decision to leave her iconic look behind.

"She was the best," the mum-of-two shared. "And since then, I just felt, without Alexis, it’s just better for me not to wear makeup."

Anderson also revealed that ditching the makeup look that helped skyrocket her to fame was actually a welcomed change, telling the outlet the novel experience was 'freeing, and fun, and a little rebellious, too'.

"I did notice that there were all these people doing big make-up looks, and it’s just like me to go against the grain and do the opposite of what everyone’s doing," she explained.
