Still rocking the Pamela Anderson look, tracksuited Lily James is a vision in velour after being spotted walking her boyfriend’s dog in Los Angeles
She is playing Pamela Anderson in a new £35million mini-series – and British actress Lily James seems to have picked up the Baywatch star’s laid-back Californian style off-camera, too.
The 32-year-old was last week spotted wearing a canary-yellow tracksuit when walking her boyfriend’s dog in Los Angeles.
Ms Anderson would often wear such outfits when not showing off her surgically enhanced 32DD curves.
The £90 outfit is officially named the ‘Diana Athpleasure Sweat Set’, with makers Sleeper telling customers it was ‘inspired by the off-duty style of Princess Diana’.
A source said: ‘I’m not sure Diana ever wore anything quite like this but Lily definitely has a relaxed LA vibe going on. It’s very much the sort of outfit the real Pammy would wear between takes on Baywatch.’

The former Downton Abbey star, more usually linked to ‘English Rose’ roles, spent four hours a day being squeezed into a prosthetic ‘boob suit’ and getting sprayed with fake tan to mimic Ms Anderson’s distinctive look.
She said putting on the famous red Baywatch swimsuit was ‘empowering’, adding: ‘I’ve never done anything where I look very different from myself before. There was something liberating in it.’
Lily stars in the eight-part series Pam & Tommy opposite US actor Sebastian Stan, who plays Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee.
Sources said the outfit was similar to those seen on Anderson between takes of Baywatch. Pictured: Lily James looking identical to Anderson on set in June, 2021
The rocker married the Playboy pin-up at the height of her fame in 1995 – just 96 hours after their first date.
The series charts how the couple became unwitting stars of the first celebrity sex tape when a video stolen from their Malibu home was released on the internet.
Ms Anderson, 54, is said to be ‘devastated’ the scandal is being dredged up again for the TV series, which will be released next month.
And Ms James has expressed regret that Pamela is not involved in the project, lamenting: ‘I wish it had been different.’
While the real-life Pamela last week announced she is divorcing husband number six, Dan Hayhurst, Lily’s romantic life appears to have settled down since she was infamously photographed kissing Dominic West, her co-star in the BBC series The Pursuit of Love.
Sources indicate that Anderson, who became an international pin-up in Baywatch, remains angered and embarrassed by the tape, and the focus on it. Might it have had an effect on her personal happiness?
She has declined to engage in any way with the makers of the show, turning a deaf ear even to sweetly framed entreaties from Lily James, above, the actress portraying her
She has been dating rock star Michael Shuman, the bass player with Queens Of The Stone Age, since last year.
‘She’s very happy,’ said a source.
‘Her career has never been better and she’s happy in her personal life.’
