Pamela Anderson has traded in her wild, tight outfits for clothing that's classic and chic. Still, the former "Baywatch" star isn't ashamed of her old look.

"I've obviously evolved, but you know what? I like being a Barbie." she told Cosmopolitan magazine. "Half of my closet has the Barbie clothes and the other half has Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, and Versace. I'm not trying to change. I'm just growing."She credits her breakup from Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee for her new, simpler attitude.
