Victoria Beckham Tells Why She Went Blonde

03/02/2007 at 06:00 AM ET

“Like a new woman” — that’s how Posh feels with her new blonde hair, according to an interview she gave British paper The Sun. The do is for a new ad campaign for the US launch of her and hubby David’s Intimately Beckham perfumes, but that’s not the only reason why. As we guessed, she was working on her transformation into an L.A. girl, “I thought it was very suitable for when we move to L.A. as well. It’s a bit of a sun-kissed Californian look, I hope.” And since her regular London-based hairdressers, Ben Cooke and Jonathan Long, were with her to do her hair for Oscar weekend, they set themselves up in Chris McMillan’s celeb-filled salon, where they worked with colorist Johnny Ramirez to create Posh’s new lighter look (the cut was actually done the next day at the home Victoria was staying at). And don’t worry, hubby David Beckham was in on the decision — Posh “kept sending David pictures to check he approves.” But she certainly does, saying “I love my new hair color, I’ve certainly got a spring in my step. And I’m keen to see if blondes really do have more fun!”

I don’t get the thrill of “Posh”! She is the most unhappy looking alledged “Star” I have seen. Folks, she is an unattractive, n talent that married up!

jessica on

yeah i think her hair looks great, but i have never seen her smile. it is kinda sad..

For those who don’t know yet why she never smiles…she once said literally..” smiling I look very much like Peggy from The Muppets..” end off.

I’m so glad to see everyone else thinks she looks terribly unhappy all the time. I don’t buy the thing about the teeth– she’s got more money than she knows what to do with , and in this day and age she could buy herself better teeth or be injected with something. Isn’t that better than not feeling like you can smile?

Hmmm…so basically what Victoria is saying is, if you move to a new place you have to become like the people. Interesting. Does that mean if she moves to Africa she’s gonna go nuts at the tanning salon? Or if she goes to China she’ll undergo surgery to get their eyes? How original.

Enough already. Again, she doesn’t smile simply because she doesn’t like her smile. I (and others) have said this many times on other Posh-related blogs, yet the vast majority of commenters here choose to ignore that fact. Sheesh.

It started with a great cut and now she was fabulous color to go along with it – she wears both very well!
