What was inside the blue Tiffany box that Melania Trump handed Michelle Obama on Inauguration Day? The world may never know. Less of a mystery is Pamela Anderson’s would-be gift to the current First Lady: a Russian faux fur. “I’m going to send her one of my Russian eco-fur coats as a gift because I’m designing furs in Russia right now,” the OG Baywatch babe and Vivienne Westwood muse told The Hill at a People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals soiree in Washington, D.C., last week. A longtime animal-rights advocate with not one but two vegan shoe collections to her name, Anderson said that while she didn’t know where President Trump stood on the issue, “his wife Melania’s favorite designer is Marc Bouwer, as far as I’ve heard. And he’s a vegan designer.”
The 45th president has gone on the record about his adult sons’ passion for big-game hunting, though not about Don Jr. and Eric’s propensity for gorily posed trophy photos.
“They’re hunters and they’ve become good at it,” he told TMZ in 2012. “I am not a believer in hunting and I’m surprised they like it.”
Melania herself controversially posed for a 2000 issue of British GQ lolling naked on a fur rug—was it fox? Perhaps mink?—and handcuffed to a briefcase on a private jet.
Bleeding hearts the Trumps are not.
But Anderson says she has nothing but good wishes for the new First Family.
“I just want him to know that there are people that wish him well, and wish him success, and to find success inside the presidency,” she said. “And I wish his family the best, and hope that he can really think about conservation and about the environment. That’s what I’m most concerned about.”
It’s a charming sentiment, but we’re not holding our breath.
