Kelly Osbourne has been purple for years. Nicole Richie has been purple for days. Now Ireland Baldwin has joined the lavender locks club, making us wonder if we should expect a tidal wave of violet-hued stars to hit the streets of Hollywood in the near future.

Baldwin, 18, a model and the daughter of Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin, previewed the new do change, posting a shot of her in the salon chair with the caption “What’s next.”

As it turns out, what was next was “purp,” as she shared below, though she covered her face with her newly technicolor do before the big reveal, above, which she captioned “I could get used to this.” (Though later, she confessed to having some sartorial difficulty, Tweeting “Purple hair and work out clothes really don’t go together … Like I may have to give up physical activity for my purple hair … Hair like this deserves combat boots and hobo-chic jeans.”)

As an up-and-coming model, we’re surprised that Baldwin would mess with her signature look, but we’re sort of loving the purple on her. Now we’re wondering who should go purple next: Taylor Swift? Jennifer Aniston? Channing Tatum? Vote in the poll and tell us your thoughts on this trend in the comments!

this little spoiled brat is desperate for attention and not all that good looking either.

Reblogged this on Lita's Corner.

She must have gotten her fathers short circuit board.

Karen on

With all due respect, I don’t know this girl, but she’s not an ‘up and coming model’. She’s the daughter of two celebrities, and she’ll never have to work a day in her life. Yeah, Georgia May Jagger is a model too. Right.

fiona on

these long face pout selfies are getting old.

mrsmass on

I’m sure she’ll get a ton of modeling gigs with that terrible hair.

Pam on

She’s not cute and I dyed my hair this color when I was 11, in 1997.

Boo on

Sigh. This is worse than trying to make Chrissie Tiegen happen.

Just stop, PEOPLE. Stop accepting those cash handouts and pleading phone calls from her “publicist.”

She’s not an up-and-coming model, she’s not a celebrity, she’s not “happening.”

She’s just someone’s kid who is as enamoured with herself as most of these selfie-obsessed twats.

Just STOP.

jessica on

She has nothing better to do.

Tina on

It does nothing for her.

veggie mama on

not attractive with blond OR purple hair!

Anna on

Wow, that’s awful.

K. on

How old is this girl? Seriously. Focus on your studies!

Lala on

Girl needs some Chapstick.

susan on

It’s better than her platinum. She was beautiful, gorgeous even, when she had a pretty shade of golden blond. Now she’s starting to just annoy me.

Kelly Bocast on

I used to be fans of her mom and dad,but they have gone into lala land.She is the best part of these two people. Good luck to her.

Rachel on

This purple hair trend is getting old, Hollywood. How about green this time, or orange, or even blue.

Anna on

I think it looks horrible. Purple is not a color for hair. It doesn’t work on Kelly O, doesn’t look good on Nicole and it certainly doesn’t do anything for Ireland. Gross.

Iona on

And now she looks as stupid and ridiculous as Kelly Osbourne

Amaryllis on

She”s a kid. Hopefully it’s temporary hair color.

lr on

Nothing special about her.

Sabrine on

The usual fatties making negative comments. She’s 18, young and this is what people do at that age. You make nasty comments but here you are with your faces in the trough yet again looking at more photos of her!

camryn on

Why? It looks so stupid and reminds me of my little pony.

Nancy on

I love this. Maybe not the colour so much, but i love the way it’s been cut. I’ve been trying to get my hairdresser to cut/style my hair like this for the last 3 years. Grr.. I tell him, ‘layered cut, with bangs,’ but it doesn’t turn out like Irelands for some reason.

Janine Marie Max on

I’ve been deep purple with black underneath for years. Did I start a trend? I love Ireland’s new hue!

laure50 on

It’s fun, she’s beautiful and allowed to play with her look. I’d do it if I looked like her!

Catherine in Tulsa on

I can only assume that someone is paying the press to run stories on her. I don’t think I’ve seen a more boring teen.

jacky Aleen on

Kelly going lavender was new, different, fresh. everyone else is a copycat-just boring…find a different color!!

Debbie on

She looks like her Father. Her mother was beautiful, but she isn’t even close to attractive.

Alex-Genie on

Sometimes I scare myself at predicting these things… I dyed my hair purple 5 days ago!!

HowTacky on

I thought she signed a modeling contract? Is she allowed to dye her hair? Good Lord. First Kelly Osbourne and now Ireland Baldwin. Do they not realize they look like Oompa Loompas with purple hair?

MrsJAZ on

Just in time for Easter !!! Sorry, but I liked her better as a blonde.

Melissa on

It doesn’t look good on her!

JustMe on

The underside of my hair has been electric purple, brighter then Ireland’s for a year now! My husband and kids think it’s cool, I’m 42!!

Gwen on

Not a good look. And the stupid “selfie” faces make it worse.

Lilyflower on

I think it’s cute :)

Lee on

I just can’t see the big deal about her! I REALLY hate to say this but Kendall Jenner is better suited to model than she is.

Vee on

unbelievable how many jealous women on this site, i would love to see pics of YOU on here, bet you “arent that cute” either ;)
