The man behind Reese Witherspoon's look in the Legally Blonde films has named KIM BASINGER Hollywood's leading blonde.

Hairstylist FREDERIC FEKKAI admits he grew up loving all the famous movie blondes, but it was Basinger's OSCAR-winning role in 1997's La Confidential that stands out as the bombshell to beat them all.

Fekkai says, "It hides half of her face and makes a very intriguing, mysterious, sexy look.

"Blonde reads better on film than any other colour, especially when it's a beautiful helmet of blonde hair."
