  Trashy Blondes Thursday 24 October 2002  
Anne Widdecombe
What do Tamzin Outhwaite, Ulrika Jonsson, Amanda Holden and Hermione Norris all have in common? The answer is they are all blonde and they all appeared on a recent cover of Vogue.

Sir Roy Strong, who contributed to Vogue in the 60s and 70s, has dubbed this type of blonde, the 'trash-ocracy'.
So why is it a quarter of women choose to go lighter? Jenni talks to 'bottle' blonde, comedian and actor, Jenny Eclair and to Lisa Shepherd, a colourist who specialises in blondes.
