When it comes to hair, Nicole Richie has never been one to shy away from bold looks. She's experimented with colored extensions (circa her The Simple Life days) and neon pink highlights (back in 2012)—and at last year's punk-themed Met Gala, she turned heads with an icy gray updo. Now, she's gone lavender! Richie revealed the look earlier today via Instagram and we're really into it.

Although Kelly Osbourne has had pastel purple hair for a while now, we wouldn't be surprised if Richie's makeover sparks a major spring hair trend. In fact, our own senior beauty editor, Maura Lynch, is already on board! Tell us: would you dye your hair purple?

UPDATE: Tragically, it seems Richie's new hair color was simply the work of Photoshop. Our friends at Fashionista discovered that the image is actually a few years old and in the original, her hair is blonde. Perhaps the Instagram was her way of testing out the purple look? If so, we think she should totally go for it!
