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?

As long as it’s not permanent, I think it’s an interesting addition. This photo, though, only shows her from the side. To really decide whether it goes well with her look there should be a view from the front AND the side…maybe even one of her performing.

Personally, as long as it’s not permanent, I think it’s a great idea.

It doesn’t look good…and ruins the gorgeous dress! It might look good with a different outfit though.

She should have got real tattoos. It looks too fake.. almost like drawn on with a marker.

By the way, tattoos on women are not trashy, depending on what kind. They are creative, colorful, and beautiful. I can’t stand people who think they have more class just because they don’t have tattoos. Believe me.. I’ve seen some pretty trashy people that have not one tattoo. Some people need to look at their own selves before they start judging others.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinions. You may not think tatoos look trashy on women, but I agree with the person who said they do. IN MY OPINION they make women look like low class trash. To each his/her own. I think Nelly’s look ridiculous. JMHO.

tracie on
