“Posh” Spice steals show with new look at NY Fashion Week

September 9, 2008

Beckham, 34, debuted the Mia Farrow/Liza Minelli/Halle Berry crop at New York’s Fashion Week the day she presented her first fashion collection range of dresses. She even managed to upstage Jennifer Lopez (pictured sitting next to her at the Marc Jacobs runway show)

Posh, whose last angular bob haircut was nicknamed the “pob”, told Britain’s Daily Telegraph she simply wanted a change.

“I get bored very very quickly and I just fancied a change,” the former Spice Girls  pop star told the Daily Telegraph.

Hollywood celebrity blogger Perez Hilton pronounced the new look “f….ing fierce” adding it was “very sexy, very cutting edge, very hot.”

The man responsible for the change was New York celebrity hairstylist Garren, who said he wanted to emphasis Posh’s cheekbones and eyes.

“It was clear that we had to go short and create a new look that embraced her beauty, great personality and body,” Garren said in a statement.

Posh’s “pob” was copied by thousands of fans back home in Britain. Will her new do inspire the end of the long tresses currently in vogue in Hollywood, where Posh has so far struggled to make a big impact on the style scene?
