VLADIVOSTOK, September 3. /TASS/. Hollywood star Pamela Anderson who took part in a charity auction here on Thursday arrived here in a luscious evening dress torn on the chest. Reporters noticed her confusion over the piquant circumstance as she was getting out of her car before the auction.
She was apparently confused and doing her best to avoid the prying looks of the people around, a TASS reporter said in an eyewitness account.
The monies raised at the auction will be spent on protection of rare and endangered species of animals in Russia's Far East. The actress listed two lots at the auction, a safety buoy featured in the Baywatch series and a dance with a person willing to donate for the salvation of wild animals.
The official closing of the auction falls on September 5, which is the last day of the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok, but a decision was taken at a meeting behind closed doors on Thursday to sell several lots earlier, including the ones listed by Anderson.
Other extravagant lots included an opportunity to give a name to a young leopard living on the Russian-Chinese border. It is not known so far who purchased the lots.
The organizers told TASS 33 lots had been put up for the auction all in all. Among them one can find the diamonds with the starting price of 3 million to 4.5 million rubles, household implements of Russia's indigenous peoples, collections of unique photos of wild animals, the alabaster imprints of the paws of tigers and bears from the Sikhote-Alin wildlife refuge, and many other objects.
All the lots are unparalleled and their uniqueness is confirmed by special certificates.
Pamela Anderson arrived at the Eastern Economic Forum at the invitation of Natural Resource Minister, Sergey Donskoi. On Thursday, they had a meeting on the sidelines of the forum.
Donskoi showed the actress the trees planted in the Russia Alley on the compound of the Federal Far-Eastern University. She was also familiarized with exhibitions devoted to the Siberian tigers and Kamchatkan bears.
Anderson said she liked her stay in Vladivostok.
