Yes we know — the words “shocks” “crazy” and “gray” almost never wind up in the same phrase. And gray hair combined with fashionista Nicole Richie seems even less likely. But the Fashion Star mentor has indeed dyed her hair gray…and we’re not sure if we like it or not. What prompted Nicole’s latest and greatest hairstyle switcharoo?
Sometimes, a celeb’s gotta do what a celeb’s gotta do. And for style diva Nicole Richie, that means taking a fashion risk every once in awhile. After all, in the aftermath of a nearly failed reality career alongside Paris Hilton, it is fashion alone that has kept Nicole’s name somewhat relevant.
It appears that, this time at least, the risk-taking has paid off for Nicole Richie, for she is receiving more attention in one morning than she has during nearly the entirety of the past year. The celeb initially attempted to up the hype by sharing an Instagram photo that included hair extensions and a huge container of dye. Fans were dying to know what Nicole’s new look would entail, with most assuming that the star was about to go for a lighter shade. Few could have guessed that said lighter shade would actually be…gray….
Nicole debuted her new ‘do at the Met Gala, a popular event for any celebrity disappointed by the end of the awards season and itching for another red carpet appearance. And the Met Gala tends to attract a fair amount of fashion risk taking. Also rocking, um, questionable hairstyles were fellow celebrities Jennifer Morrison and, surprisingly enough, Zachary Quinto.
What do you think of Nicole Richie’s Met Gala look? Stylish or a little too much? Feel free to voice your opinion in the comments section below!
