As Pamela Anderson sports THAT swimsuit again at 55, what a lady in red is really saying…
- Women are twice as likely to wear red when meeting a man they like the look of
It was an image that graced the bedroom walls of countless teenage boys.
And, three decades on, Pamela Anderson shows she still has the figure to model her famous Baywatch swimsuit.
The 55-year-old wore a red one-piece bathing suit in Malibu for the Los Angeles-based brand Frankies Bikinis, with whom she has a collaboration.
It was virtually identical to the one she wore when playing CJ Parker over five series of the hit 1990s TV show. Prince William once revealed he had a poster of the actress on his wall at Eton. Posting the new image on Instagram, Ms Anderson wrote: ‘It’s about time – I have been so excited to share this with you.’
It came as a study showed women are twice as likely to wear red when meeting a man they like the look of.

More than half those taking part in an experiment at the University of Potsdam, Germany, wore red dresses, blouses, scarves or lipstick when attending a meeting with a man whose photo they took a shine to. When the man was less attractive, little more than a quarter did so.
The findings, published in the journal PLoS One, supports previous studies which found women often wear red to increase their attractiveness.
Psychologists recruited 280 women aged 18 to 46 for what the subjects thought was a project on intelligence. Each was sent a picture of the man they were to meet to guide them through the study.
Almost 52 per cent who thought they were meeting a good-looking man came wearing red clothes or make-up.
Among those allocated to a less attractive male it was only 26 per cent. The researchers said: ‘Red was used to symbolise lust, passion and fertility in ancient mythology. The attractiveness of a social interaction partner does have an effect on women’s choice of outfit.’
