Pamela Anderson is almost unrecognizable with this fresh-faced look

We're used to seeing her a little more done up, but the actress has made a quite a change.

Pamela Anderson is a beautiful woman. But we're used to seeing her be beautiful with a certain amount of makeup and often teased hair. And, for many of us, in a red bathing suit from her "Baywatch" days!

Well, Anderson has a few tricks up her sleeve, as she proved while attending an award gala in Paris in late January.

The 49-year-old clearly went for a more stripped-down, fresh-faced look for her Paris party: Her bleach blonde, teased locks were more beige and kissed with highlights, and she went for something of a make-under on her face, with only light coloring across her sculpted cheeks and around her eyes.

That doesn't mean still doesn't know how to push the envelope: Her ballgown dress in Paris was by Vivienne Westwood and was covered in a print of faces making interesting expressions.

Compare the above look to the one just a few days later:

Yep, that's the Pamela Anderson we're more familiar with but there's nothing wrong with a little change of pace.
