True Blood's Kristin Bauer van Straten plays the uber hot vamp Pam on the HBO show.
With tight corsets and dark red lips, Pam usually struts her stuff in risqué clothing. Until, about a couple weeks ago, when Truebies were introduced to Pam's sexy yellow Walmart sweatsuit (above).
At last week's Comic-Con, Kristin discussed the out-of-character fashion statement during the True Blood panel.
Discussing the costume piece, Kristin said:
"It starts with the writing, with that brilliant line — the Walmart line — and then when we go to a wardrobe fitting, [costume designer] Audrey Fisher is a genius.
Usually things are tailored to make me look better, but this was tailored to be a little short and elastic around the legs and then the yellow was dyed slightly off.
[There was a] rack of Walmart sweatsuits, and we started with the yellow one and were like, 'I don’t think we need to try on anything else, so it’s just Audrey! She's responsible for the whole Pam look."
In fact, she's starting a new fad. Not only were there at least three fans spotted wearing replicas of the sweatsuit, but even one in the front row, which Kristin yelled out:
"I see a Walmart sweatsuit in the front row actually. It’s actually a trend!"
While we love seeing Pam show off all her assets in sexy jumpsuits and tight-fitting leather, we have to say, the Walmart look is really growing on us!
