Quick, what do you think of when you hear the name Pamela Anderson?

Blond bombshell, right? Us too. The former Baywatch beauty is just as famous for her long honey locks as she is for her stunning figure. But Anderson threw onlookers for a different kind of curve Thursday with a brand new, much shorter 'do.

The Burnaby, B.C. actress showed off a voluminous bob -- still blond, of course -- at the Giorgio Armani Paris Photo LA event at Mr. Chow in Beverly Hills, Calif. Pam's coif was reminiscent of Marilyn Monroe's sexy chin-length style, but she kept her look modern with a simple black bodycon dress with cutouts at the shoulders, nude and black platform peeptoe pumps, and a small gold clutch.

The look is startingly similar to an earlier appearance in April, but our Pammy's been experimenting with a few different looks lately, with a snug white frock winning over the internets earlier in April, and a some more casual outfits in the mix in recent months.

If you're worried the sexy mother of two has chopped her locks forever, fear not -- judging from a loosened curl or two, Anderson's reserving the right to shake out that bob into her trademark golden mane whenever the mood strikes.
