Channel Pam From 'True Blood' For Some Drop "Dead" Gorgeous Fashion Inspo This Season
Not everyone likes Pamela Swynford de Beaufort; she can be mean, catty, and a total bitch from hell, but it's probably safe to say that many women would want to emulate the style of True Blood's Pam. It's a simple fact that Pam is the vampiest vampire in Louisiana (or possibly the entire world). After all, she is the progeny of Viking vampire Eric Northman, who saved her from a lonely life as a brothel mistress at the turn of the twentieth century.
Along with Eric, Pam is the co-owner of Fangtasia, a vampire nightclub. She is fiercely loyal to Eric and is the maker of Tara Thornton, the best friend of everyone's favorite fairy Sookie Stackhouse. Pam is, however, often misinterpreted due to the way she dresses:
"I don't know what it is about me that makes people think I want to hear their problems. Maybe I smile too much. Maybe I wear too much pink. But please remember I can rip your throat out if I need to." — Pam
Although sometimes her looks could kill, Pam flirts between bondage style and über feminine outfits that gained her the nickname of "Vampire Barbie" by Tara. But whichever style she chooses to wear for the day, you can rest assured that she will have a full face of makeup, perfect hair, and will look absolutely flawless.
So in honor of Pam, here are her signature styles and tips on how to get the Vampire Barbie look at home.
