15 Years Later, Pamela Anderson Is Back in Her Baywatch Bathing Suit
Do you think trying on old clothes is motivating or depressing?
by Lexi Petronis, Glamour Magazine
Can you believe it was 15 years ago that Pamela Anderson donned her famous red swimsuit for the last time? Now, at the age of 45, she's slipped back into it.
Here's Pamela then... and now.
And she looks amazing in it, don't you think? No, there's no Baywatch reboot in sight. She put it back on to film a commercial in Brazil late last week.
I'm pretty sure I don't have clothes from 15 years ago anywhere in my closet, but I have definitely hung onto a few dresses and pairs of skinny jeans, thinking they will somehow always fit as nicely as they once did. Um, but do they? I'm not sure. I haven't actually tried them on in a long, long time.

So why do we keep them around, anyway? Some experts say (and you may have even experienced this) that we may think we can use those smaller-size clothes as motivation to get back into shape, but that can backfire when we're making excellent exercise progress but those pants still don't fit. And they can serve as a constant, annoying reminder that we used to be a certain size.
What do you think? Do you think keeping old clothes leads to motivation, or is it just depressing?

Sunglasses: it may seem counterintuitive to invest in a wintertime accessory traditionally viewed as a sunny, warm-weather item. But spring is on the way and we’re also currently being exposed to crazy amounts of UV rays—and then, of course, there’s the reflective snow situation.

As I continue my personal campaign to swap out E!'s mani cam with a back-of-updo cam (and as a service to all the hardworking hairstylists who spent so much time creating beautiful hair looks for the 2014 Oscars), I'd like to point out that we miss a lot of gorgeous detail when we don't get the back view of a star's hair.

When someone says “Julia Roberts,” you think teeth. You think hair. But while you may not immediately think fashion, she has had a pretty consistent—and consistently pretty—style since her Mystic Pizza days: clean, classic, menswear-inspired looks that let her natural beauty—and rightly famous smile—take center stage. Here’s how she has elevated that look over the years.
