Pamela Anderson made her way “from one garden to the next” as she took to the red carpet for her first Met Gala this week.

The Ladysmith celebrity was widely complimented for her look at the Metropolitan Museum of Art fundraiser Monday, May 6, in New York City.

The evening’s dress code was ‘Garden of Time’ and Anderson wore a custom fawn-coloured crinkled chiffon gown with micro pleating by Oscar de la Renta.

The designer’s co-creative director Fernando Garcia wrote in a social media post addressed to Anderson that she is beautiful inside and out.

“Taking you to the Met was nothing short of magic, the kind of magic you find in fairytales with tinkerbells,” he said. “Allowing us so much trust made us give you the embodiment of your current state of mind: free and happy. The memory of this night is indestructible, just like you.”

Anderson’s look was completed with jewelry by Pandora, makeup by Pat McGrath, hair by Orlando Pita and a faux feather wreath by Noel Stewart.

Pandora posted on social media that custom lab-grown diamond necklaces draped over Anderson’s shoulders were meant as an “effortless, organic look,” a custom hair pin was inspired by the idea of a butterfly landing on her, and a brooch on her waist was reminiscent of dew drops.

“With a mix of vintage and modern touches, the entire look is inspired by the elements of nature Pamela loves most in her garden,” the jeweller posted.

Anderson shared videos on social media of her running through the museum and also through Central Park after the event.

“From one garden to the next,” she posted.

The gala marked the opening of the museum’s Costume Institute’s spring exhibition, ‘Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion.’ The benefit, under the leadership of Met trustee Anna Wintour, has raised more than $220 million for the department over the years, according to a museum press release.
