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 should try smiling once in a while. I think she’s homely….not attractive at all. She is too full of herself which is too bad because she’s got nothing to be so haughty about.

I think people need to reserve judgement about her personality, as we do not know her personally. I do think she has a great sense of style, and she looks great for a woman with three kids. All the best!!

Just for all of you who are jealouse!!!She is smart, beautifull and elegant lady. She knows how much she is worthed, so she doesn’t need to proof her self to you. No one can’t compare with her. She is icon to all mothers. Go Vicki.

I think that Victoria Beckham does not smile because apart from her loads of money and seemingly happy marriage..she is just plain sad inside. She has no purpose in life other than the fact that she likes to be photographed and talked about. Her husband has cheated on her in the past and you know that when your husband has already cheated on you most likely it wasn’t just that once. So you see money does not buy happiness or health…I think we like to read about these people because we fantasize about being rich ourselves but they are skin and bones and blodd just like everybody else and they suffer bad times just like us. So who knows if she eats or smiles or farts…the fact his she is a human being…and her nose is not that bad at all…
