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!”

she does look good in blonde, she’d be so much prettier with a smile and i bet her dimples would make her look so beautiful!

I noticed with her new blonde look that she still doesn’t know how to smile. Is it just me, or is she the most miserable looking person?? What’s not to smile about??? She’s married to David Beckham with not a worry in the world. She’s got an endless supply of money to jet all over the world (while their nanny looks after their kids) getting photographed looking miserable picture after picture. I don’t get it!

I do not understand why she is still hounded by photographers, none of the other spice girls are stalked as much as her. I would be miserable and never smile either if I had a camera stuck in my face everywhere I went. I am all for celeb pictures but hasnt her moment pasted (Like 10 years ago)?
I do love her hair blonde and do agree with the woman who said “eat a twinkie already!”

Does she smile ever?

Again I have to say the cut and color is slamming…. They can call you a “robot” but your a “robot” with kick-ass hair!

People keep wondering why she isn’t smiling- Its not like she is posing for these pics that are being taken, they are being taken at random moments while she is running errands. Do you keep a plastered smile on your face while you are grocery shopping?

She never smiles. And this whole new reality show…what for?? her husband (who is the hottest man alive) already makes like $500 million … who wants to see what a wasteful, stuckup, spoiled woman she probably is?

as far as the hair…it’s not the color that looks bad (although i think she looks better as a brunette), but that cut is so 80s! and not flattering for her since she already looks like a lolly-pop…makes her head look too big for her stick body.

I like the look, it suits her. I totally agree with everyone who says she should be smiling more, she has plenty to smile about. Apparently she doesn’t like her dimples. She’s always had them and years ago she smiled all the time. In fact, she never stopped smiling for the media when there was that affair controvery. I think she doesn’t smile because she’s going through her pout phase. Fickle, fickle, fickle

I LOVE her hair. I wish I could cut my hair like that. She looks great and I love her.

It’s been reported that she rarely smiles because she doesn’t like the way her teeth look. But she has a nice smile, so go ahead, Posh, smile!
