Diane Kruger Accidentally Dyed Her Hair Orange, Is Human After All

Her beauty blunder finally sets the record straight.

Diane Kruger, patron saint of gorgeousness inside and out (opens in new tab), is human. For so long I couldn't wrap my head around this fact, but after learning that she too has fallen victim to an at-home hair dye catastrophe...yep, mortal.

In an interview with Allure (opens in new tab), the German beauty admitted that when she hit the God's Love We Deliver Golden Heart Awards donning a Pumpkin Spice Latte-esque (opens in new tab) shade of bronze, it was a cover-up for a D.I.Y. drugstore disaster.

"I hadn't colored my hair in six months, and I had been away working for two months," she explained. "I'm in New York, and it looked a little dull, so I just thought, I'll go to CVS and buy a gloss. Only it turned my hair a dark mud brown. I called anybody that I know in New York who could help me. Serge Normant literally saved me this morning. And now it's still slightly red, but it's getting better. I have to keep going back. The woman at the salon who is helping me said it's going to take
three visits."

Having become a bit redhead-obsessed (opens in new tab) myself this fall, I actually kind of loved her auburn-tinged hiatus, but as a blonde who has had her fair share of brassy boxed color disasters, I totally feel for her. (Even if I don't have Serge Normant at my beck and call).
