Manolo says, perhaps the light it is at the end of the tunnel.
SHE’S the Hollywood star credited for turning an Australian icon into a worldwide fashion phenomenon, but Pamela Anderson has taken the shears to her longterm love affair with Ugg boots.
In perhaps her blondest moment yet, the former Baywatch babe has announced she is putting the boot into her footwear staple of the last decade, boycotting Uggs after finally realising they were made from shaved sheep skin.
The mother-of-two, who is a staunch animal rights activist and member of PETA, says she is wracked with guilt over the fact that women around the globe followed in her footsteps by wearing the boots.
“I’m getting rid of my Uggs – I feel so guilty for that craze being started around my Baywatch days,” Anderson wrote on her website.
“I used to wear them with my red swim suit to keep warm never realizing that they were skin! I thought they were shaved kindly?”
“It’s what I grab by my door in the mornings to bring my kids to school or walk my dog on the beach at 6am or anything early. I’ve definitely over-used them – and that’s it!”
While fashion critics have always been inclined to label Anderson’s penchant for the boots as Ugh, the busty pin-up sparked a massive celebrity craze replicated by wannabe fashionistas around the globe after being consistently photographed wearing the comfortable boots for years.
“People like to tell me all the time that I started that trend – yikes!” Anderson wrote.
“Well let’s start a new one. Do NOT buy Uggs! Buy Stella McCartney or juicy boots.”
Amen, sister, amen!
Perhaps, finally, our long international nightmare is over, and we may now devote all of our energies to destroying the Crocs.
