Ringing in the New Year means a fresh new start and a new hairstyle for Heather Mills. The Dancing With the Stars alum revealed a bold new stylish haircut, and says life after a bitter divorce from Paul McCartney is "great."

Chopping off her long golden locks for a cropped, boyish style 'do and opting for a lighter bleached blonde shade, Mills's confident new look was sported on the Today show while announcing her one million dollar donation to a vegan foods charity in New York.

But for Mills, 40, the new look is one part in moving forward in her life with 4-year-old daughter Beatrice. Now that her divorce from McCartney has been finalized since last spring, she says she is emotionally in a better place now.

"Life's good," Mills told the Today show. "It was a very difficult time for everybody involved. We were most importantly trying to protect our daughter and she seems to have come through incredibly well."

She adds, "Everyone I know who has been through a divorce, finds it really, difficult, I don't know anyone that didn't go through a hard time. We just went through it publicly. But things are great, really good."
