Former Baywatch babe Pamela Anderson has taken the shears to her ugg boots.The Hollywood pin-up credited with turning the Australian boots into a global fashion phenomenon denounced the footwear on her website.In a truly blonde moment, the actress has suddenly realised that the boots are made from shaved sheepskin.And mother-of-two Pammy, a staunch animal rights activist who has been a PETA member for a decade, says she is racked (get your minds out of the gutter -ed.) with guilt that women worldwide have followed in her footsteps.“People like to tell me all the time that I started that trend ‚Äì yikes!” Anderson wrote. “I used to wear them with my red swimsuit to keep warm, never realising they were skin.“Well, let’s start a new trend. Do NOT buy uggs! Buy Stella McCartney or Juicy boots.”
I’m getting rid of our Uggs – I feel so guilty for that craze being started around Baywatch days – 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?
Pammy won’t be ditching her trademark look altogether, but says she is designing her own version using synthetic materials.
