Gentlemen prefer blondes: The world’s most famous blondes

Second only to red, blonde hair is one of the rarest hair colors in the world. Associated with bombshells and youth, blonde hair captivates the imagination with a sense of lightness, playfulness and elusiveness. Being blonde can feel like being part of some elusive (and highly coveted) club.

They say that gentlemen prefer blondes and that blondes have more fun. These celebrities represent the blonde sisterhood better than anyone.
