In each age (or Uga) Krishna descends in a different form. He descended as Rama (green), Chetanya (Gold), etc. When he comes as himself (Krishna) he is blue. This is his eternal form which resides in the spiritual world, but he sometimes expands himself onto the earth to exibit his transcendental pastimes for the pleasure of his devotees who are not yet liberated from the material world. Krishna is not an expansion of Vishnu, Vishnu is an expansion of Krishna. So, why is Krishna blue? Because that is his eternal form ~ Krishna means "All Attractive." His form is the most beautiful. If you would like to learn more, go to and read the online books, especially the Bhagavatam or Bhagadva Gita.
