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!”

Allie, are you blind? I must admit, Posh isn’t exactly ugly-looking. However, she is nowhere near being gorgeous. Gorgeous is Angelina Jolie. Gorgeous is Charlize Theron. Gorgeous is Gwyneth Paltrow. I don’t even know why she’s called “Posh.” Half of the time, she looks anything but posh.

I think she looks great! Her hair always looks great though!

I’ve already stated this on another Victoria thread, I love the hair color, but I don’t like the cut. That cut is too retro 80’s, I like her better with long hair. JMO.

I’ve heard that she doesn’t smile, because she doesn’t like her dimples…regardless, she’s a pretty woman, she should embrace what the good Lord gave her. She’s not the only one with dimples, many have dimples, she shouldn’t be ashamed. I know there is something in all of us that we absolutely hate, like, maybe we don’t like our hips, or maybe someone has webbed feet…I see it this way, we’re not perfect. We should learn to embrace what the good Lord gave us. So whether Victoria thinks she looks like Miss Piggy, well, maybe she’s figured out something about herself that she doesn’t consider being perfect, sorry Victoria, but there is gonna be something that we’re not all gonna like about ourselves, but we should learn to be proud of what we got. Just thank goodness that hating your smile is the least of your worries, be thankful for everything else, because if that’s you’re only worry, just make note that should be the least of your worries. Besides, when is having dimples a crime. LOVE YOURSELF!

Tonya, that is my opinion. Please don’t try to correct my opinion. I think Victoria is a georgous, whether you do or not.
She is a child of God, which means she is beautiful.

You guys that say eat a twinkie and go gain weight, etc. must be a bunch of pigs!
