New York Fashion Week 2023 kicked off the second of its semi-annual series of events on Thursday, September 7.
As international fashion collections are shown to buyers, the press, and the general public, the Daily Front Row held the 10th iteration of its Fashion Media Awards on Friday.
Legendary Playboy model and actress Pamela Anderson was among the list of celebrities to be honored during the event at the Rainbow Room in Midtown Manhattan.
Before receiving the Style Icon award, Anderson made her way to the star-studded red carpet to strike a few poses decked out in a tan full-length dress and black heels.
Initially, she worked her magic in front of admiring photographers solo, but eventually she shared the spotlight with Brandon Lee, who’s one of her two sons she shares with ex-husband and Mötley Crüe rocker Tommy Lee.

Anderson, 56, was all smiles as she shifted her attention to the photographers on the carpet.
While the two-strap dress had a sleeveless design, she opted to have the left one hang over her shoulder, which was a look made popular in the 1980s.
The unique number hung loosely off her fab figure for the most part, with the exception of upper portion that appeared to hug more to her ample cleavage and waist.
Rounding out her overall look, the former Baywatch actress had her blonde tresses styled long and flowing to her waistline in the back with a a part off to the slight right.
Lee, 27, was a perfectly color-coordinated with his mom in a brown double-breasted suit that he matched with a pair of black dress shoes.
The producer and actor had his dark hair cut short, over the ears, with a part on the right.
Later on after the awards had been handed out, Anderson and Lee returned for another round of photos where she could showcase her Style Icon trophy.
The Home Improvement star flashed a series of proud smiles, while her son stood to her side doing his best to make her laugh.
He won out in his mission, as Anderson couldn’t hold back from breaking out into laughter while the cameras snapped away.

Anderson married her son’s father on a beach in Cancun in February 1995 four days after meeting in person, according to People.
Standing just a few feet from the incoming ocean waves, the bride exchanged her vows in a white bikini, while the groom went shirtless in just boardshorts.
According to Lee, the pair spent six weeks talking on the telephone before Anderson finally agreed to spend time together. But instead of meeting up, she left for a photo shoot in Cancun the following day. But Lee was persistent and followed her to the tropical paradise.
‘I really always had such a fairy tale idea what a wedding would be, that I’d meet somebody, fall in love and it would just be very romantic, and it would be love at first sight. And I had all these things that I wanted it to be. And he chased me down to Cancun, and I just thought it was romantic,’ the former Playboy model revealed during an interview with Larry King in 2002.

Hs brother Dylan, now 25, was born the following year in December 1997.
