AnnaLynne McCord, is that you?
star (and animal lover) revealed a dramatic new hair color on Twitter this week – with the help of a furry friend.
"I'm in LOVE!!!!!!" McCord Tweeted
on Tuesday, along with a photo of herself leaning over a snoozing white puppy. Bearing a slight resemblance to Alyssa Milano, the former blonde displayed dark brown tresses while wearing a cozy cardigan.
Fans of 90210

"Okay! I'm NOT leaving 902 and the hair is for a movie I'm shooting right now," she said
. "I adore all of you!! Xxx"
