Pamela Anderson says she's the reason Melania Trump and Kim Kardashian stopped wearing fur

In a new op-ed penned for The GuardianBaywatch star Pamela Anderson claims she's the reason that Melania Trump and Kim Kardashian West have given up fur. 

The PETA advocate, who has posed for the organization in many ads, took to the publication on Wednesday to explain her vegan roots and how she convinced two of the world's most notable names to swear off the style for good. 

"Today I wouldn’t wear fur, and I don’t want to glamorise it by wearing faux, but it’s still better than wearing someone’s else’s skin," the 51-year-old wrote.  "I sent faux fur coats to Melania Trump and Kim Kardashian, and both have sworn off fur since."

The actress has also influenced her family to change their eating habits, beginning with her father when she was a child. 

She wrote, "My father was a hunter and one day I found a dead deer, without its head, hanging outside our home, dripping blood into a bucket. I cried for days. It wasn’t hard for me to give up something so cruel. I got my father to stop hunting, too."

Her sons' modeling contracts forbid them from wearing fur, too. "They’re both vegan, too, but I never forced it on them," Anderson claimed.

The article continues to discuss how Anderson's career has changed, allowing her more flexibility in the projects she chooses.

She offers the example of working with "kindred spirit" Vivianne Westwood, a designer who shares Anderson's commitment to environmental causes. "Fashion has so many new fabrics, recycled from the pollution in the ocean," she explained. "You just have to be engaged with the world."

"For the first time in my life I don’t have an army of people making decisions for me. I can finally decide for myself," she concluded.

Melania Trump attended the General Debate of the 73rd session of the General Assembly at the United Nations alongside her husband. Her black dress was thought to be a slight towards President Trump as many people on the internet saw her outfit as a gesture of support for sexual assault survivors.

The Trumps welcomed Polish President Andrzej Duda and his wife Agata Kornhauser-Duda to the White House in September. The problem? Melania was wearing a wool coat while it was still 80 degrees outside. Furthermore, she didn't remove her coat while dining inside with the Polish first lady, which Twitter deemed not the best hostess tactic.

Melania Trump tried her hand at gardening for the second time to plant an Eisenhower Oak at the White House in August. The $4000 skirt and sky-high Louboutin heels she wore to dig soil sent the internet aflame. 

"Melania is launching her new line of Gardening Attire, accompanied by the standard 4-inch heels," joked one Twitter user.

FLOTUS stepped out on August 20th in Maryland to promote her Be Best initiative and discuss cyberbullying. To the event, she wore the once-controversial pussy-bow blouse -- the same style she sported during the 2016 presidential debate after the Access Hollywood leak.

Arguably her most controversial outfit yet, Melania sported a jacket emblazoned with the words "I Really Don't Care Do You" to visit migrant children separated from their parents in Texas. The Zara jacket retails for $39.

Melania arrived at POTUS' State of the Union at the start of the new year in a white Dior pantsuit. Many members of Congress chose to wear black in solidarity with sexual assault survivors and in protest of the Trump administration: Melania stood out in all white.

Following Ivana Trump's controversial interview in October, Melania donned an emerald green shirtdress from British brand Cefinn to an official visit to Lily's Place to visit with families affected by addiction. It's the first non-profit infant recovery center in the world. 

The dress was designed by former first lady of Britain Samantha Cameron. Is she reminding everyone of her status?

Alongside President Trump, FLOTUS arrived in Vegas in October to pay their respects to the 50 victims of the Las Vegas shooting. Her all-black, closed-off look drew some major criticism on Twitter. 

"I'm making a public plea to Melania Trump: stop with the sunglasses (and the heels at disaster areas)," one Twitter user wrote.

Twitter had a lot to say about this picture of FLOTUS getting down and dirty in the garden established by former first lady Michelle Obama. 

Her $1380 Balmain shirt wasn't the most appropriate choice for the event.

Though this photo was taken at the White House Congressional Picnic in June, the Trumps tweeted a photo from the event to wish the country a happy Labor Day the following September. 

"We are building our future with American hands, American labor, American iron, aluminum and steel," POTUS wrote. Ironically, Melania's dress was designed by Mary Katrantzou, a Greek-born British designer. Twitter had *a lot* to say.

Off to help Hurricane Harvey victims, Melania made headlines when she boarded Air Force One in sky-high stilettos.

"God grant me the serenity not to comment on the shoes," wrote one Twitter user.

While visiting Yad Vashem, Israel's Holocaust Memorial, Melania sported a white sleeveless dress. Twitter wasn't happy with her sporting bare shoulders at the memorial.

Wrote one user, "Melania cover your arms up, show some respect."

"Geez. The lambasted Michelle Obama for baring her arms and her is Melania Trump in conservative Israel with a sleeveless dress," said another.
