“I really don’t like to wear clothes. I would rather go naked,” says Pamela Anderson before the ROCK Fashion Week Richie Rich runway show at Miami Beach’s Fontainebleau Resort Fri. night. “But I love Richie’s designs, so I agreed to be part of Muse.” Former Heatherette designer Richie Rich has teamed up with Pamela to design a line of eco-friendly fashions that will debut in mid summer named Muse, in honor of Anderson’s constant inspiration to the designer. Since Anderson is an avid animal activist, the team will design leather-free shoes and other casual ready-to-wear items like hoodies, skirts, swimwear and frocks that are made of environmentally friendly materials. “Pam is an outdoorsy and summer kind of girl who I have been friends with forever,” Rich tells PEOPLE. “We share the same wild and crazy aesthetic. And she has long been my inspiration.” Rich, who designed Anderson’s white wedding gown for her South of France marriage to Kid Rock three years ago, says she resembles sexy Hollywood sirens of years back. “Even though Pam prefers not to wear clothes, she looks great in sexy dresses,” he says. “She reminds me of Marilyn Monroe and Bridget Bardot.” — Linda Marx
