When it comes to its fashion shows, Chanel loves a good theme. And for spring 2019, the iconic French brand went for a seaside-inspired vibe, complete with a fake beach serving as the runway inside the Grand Palais in Paris. You know, normal Tuesday-at-Fashion-Week things. That wasn’t the only detail really hammering home the inspiration for Chanel’s latest collection: Right there, sitting in the front row, was none other than Baywatch‘s own Pamela Anderson. The actress swapped her iconic red bathing suit for a less sand-friendly look from the label—a white skirt-suit, black and beige Mary Janes, and a white quilted bag. Still, she couldn’t resist revisiting her lifeguard roots once the show wrapped.
After the models had made their way up and down the sandbar, Anderson stripped off her shoes, hiked up her skirt, and—yes—ran down the beach. (We’d like to think she did so in slow-motion, but we can’t confirm.) Photographers caught the moment, for any fans hoping to indulge in some Baywatch nostalgia.
While Pamela Anderson isn’t quite as much of a Paris Fashion Week front-row fixture as, say, Kim Kardashian, she actually spends much of her time in the City of Love: According to Vogue, she has been dating French soccer player Adil Rami since 2017 and is appearing on the current season of France’s version of Dancing With the Stars, Dans Avec Les Stars. TBD, if one of her routines features running in slow motion, but we’d give her 10/10 for that, for sure.
