Nelly Furtado might be absent from the music scene for quite some time now but everyone will forever remember the artist for her many wonderful songs. Her music was fresh as ever and people loved the fact that her songs were always associated with world music. Her musical versatility and constant reinvention made her one of the best singers of her times and her songs like Promiscuous, Maneater, Say It Right, and All Good Things (Come to an End) are still popular amongst her fans.

Nelly started her singing stint when she was very young. Her earliest public performance was when she sang a duet with her mother at a church on Portugal Day. She knows how to play trombone, ukulele, guitar and keyboards. Furtado gained fame with her trip-hop inspired debut album, Whoa, Nelly! Her songs I'm Like a Bird and Turn Off the Light also won a Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.
Apart from her grooving songs, Nelly also has her fashion game on point. Even in her 40s, she has made several stunning red carpet appearances that were jaw-dropping. The singer is a huge fan of chic gowns and we often see her rocking a red carpet look like a boss. Today as the singer celebrating her 42nd, we decided to list down 5 of her best red carpet looks.
