Mickey Rourke, Baywatch, Pamela Anderson and Richie Rich at New York Fashion Week - Thursday 1st January 1970

The former Baywatch babe squeezed herself into a barely-there gold swimsuit on Wednesday night for an appearance at a New York Fashion Week show, where she cavorted onstage with designer Richie Rich. But guests were left a little confused by the 41-year-old former pin-up's presence - and those at the back of the room were convinced they were watching The Wrestler star and Oscar nominee Mickey Rourke rally for support ahead of the Academy Awards on Sunday (22Feb09).
