Nicole Richie takes her purple hair to the red carpet, May 2014 (Rex)
UPDATE: Nicole Richie isn't one to dabble in zany hair colours- the last time the mother-of-two was seen sporting an outrageous shade was at the punk themed Costume Institute Gala in May last year. However, according to last night's red carpet, it seems as if Ms Richie is totally in love with her new lilac tresses. In fact, we've never seen Nic's hair looking quite so chic- us beauty girls give her glossy, purple tousled strands our full beauty marks. Plus, if you look a little closer, you'll see that Nicole has gone for a couple of different purple tones which really highlight her olive skin tone and make her style pop. Beauty crush? You bet!
4th March 2014: Nicole Richie Showcases New Purple Hair
Nicole Richie first unveiled her purple hue on Instagram (@nicolerichie)
Last week, Nicole Richie pulled a teensy prank on us by posting a photoshopped image of herself with purple hair on Instagram. Nicole sure had us fooled! The thing is though, Ms Richie actually looked totally amazing with her new lilac tresses, and us beauty ladies couldn’t help but feel a tiny bit miffed when we realised that the colour change was, in fact, a prank. However, we reckon Nicole liked what she saw as judging by her latest Instagram post, it seems as if the purple hue is here to stay. Fellow lavender-haired celebrity Kelly Osbourne also shared a snap of Richie’s new locks during a gathering that looked suspiciously like the Oscars after party. Quite the debut, we say!

Perhaps the initial photo was merely a test drive to see how the public would react to Nicole’s colour change, or perhaps she wanted to see how the bold technicolour hue would look against her olive skintone. Either way, we give Ms Richie our full beauty marks- this sure is quite the beauty statement!
However, the question we’re all now asking is how permanent Nicole’s new hue actually is. Judging by her grey barnet at the 2013 Met Gala, we reckon Ms Richie is quite the fan of a semi-permanent colour (and no shrinking violet when it comes to mixing up her beauty look), but we’re keeping our fingers and toes crossed that this purple colour is for real. Why? Well, we think Nicole looks totally gorgeous, and her look is bang on-trend for SS14 to boot.
