Nicole Richie Dyes Hair Purple, Time Stops

Update: We've been informed that this is actually a cleverly Photoshopped image. However, now that we've seen it, we feel very strongly that Richie needs to actually dye her hair like this, immediately.
In the world of beauty news, it doesn't get more breaking than this: Nicole Richie has dyed her hair purple. And, as you can see, we're not talking about a tinge of purple, but full-on lilac locks. Swoon.
This hair switcheroo is truly a testament to Richie's chameleon abilities. Just days ago, she was spotted sporting a chocolate-brown bob — and her big Insta-reveal occurred just today. (So, what did you do this weekend?) We've seen Richie rock many a daring 'do in our day (ombré, pink dip dye, the list goes on), but we have to say, even we were surprised by this bold foray into Kelly Osbourne territory.
Only time will tell if Richie's colorful crop is here to stay or if we're looking at more of a semi-permanent situation. But, for now, what say you, readers? Is Richie's hair more purple-people-eater or pretty pastel? Weigh in, below.
