After Nicole Richie faked out her fans with a Photoshopped image of herself with purple hair, it looks like the Instagram prank was just a preview of what was really to come.

Her hubby Joel Madden snapped this photo of Nicole's stunning new lilac look, which is a slightly darker version of her Photoshopped hair from last week. After the new photo was taken, she met up with another famously purple-haired friend, Kelly Osbourne, who also confirmed via Instagram that the purple dye job was the real deal, sharing a pic of the duo together.

Kelly captioned the snapshot, "Guess [who] took the bet & dyed [their] hair MY color @nicolerichie."

So is Nicole Richie's new hue here to stay? Maybe not, but we love that the star isn't afraid to take on a challenge.
