Nelly Furtado's Off-Beat Accessory

11/03/2006 at 04:30 PM ET

MTV Awards shows are always the place to try out unorthodox fashion (and in some cases, unorthodox behavior). Last night’s European Music Awards were no exception, but Nelly Furtado’s arms really caught our eye and got us scratching our heads. The sultry Canadian singer paired her slinky satin gown with airbrushed faux-tattoos of flames going up and down her arms. Nelly’s rep tells us she wanted to “look like a Goddess with all the pyro-tech in her performance and white flowing dress.” Tell us: what do you think of Nelly’s out-there accessory? Is this super-hot or a burn-out?

I think the flames look great. It’s definetly not an everyday look, but for a fun night on the town or a special occasion it adds flare!

I’m sorry, but in my opinion, tattoos of any kind on females is completely low class.


and why is it low class on ONLY females?? The old double standard? Very hypocritical..just because YOU dont like it doesnt mean its “low class”…some people REALLY need to open their minds to different things..

Why is a girl with tattoos unclassy?? That is completely untrue.

just because a woman has tattoos,that doesnt mean she has less class than you do.

I applaud her for doing something different.And her dress is absolutely gorgeous.

Does it have to be red? It looks like a rash.

I’m sure this shall start a trend with all the celebs. I really like it. I think it is something totally different and I have never seen anyone do that before. Well Jesse James has it going on..but Furtado looks smoking hott.
