Nelly Furtado knows that all eyes are on her.
On Sunday, the 43-year-old made a surprise appearance at the 49th Toronto International Film Festival for the new variety show “Lido TV,” created by comedian and musician Lido Pimienta. Furtado stars in an episode of the show.
The “I’m Like A Bird” songstress, who has one daughter, Nelvis, 18, with ex-husband Demacio Castellon, looked chic in a floor-length black gown by Marc Andrew Smith. The dress featured a sleeveless, one-shoulder design with cut-out details on the torso and chest, along with a sultry thigh high slit.
The Victoria, BC-native accessorized with while nail polish and simple gold jewelry by Maison Birks and The Webster.
Furtado’s hairstylist, Kelly Araujo, styled her chestnut locks in loose curls that fell freely from a side part.
For glam, the singer’s makeup artist, Susana Hong, gave her a dewy look with brown eyeshadow, flushed cheeks and a soft pink lip.
On Instagram, Furtado shared a video of her red carpet look with her fans.
In the clip, the star blew kisses and tossed up peace signs with her fingers as the camera panned up and down to show off her look. The video then cut to the red carpet, showing her with the cast of “Lido TV.”
“Proud day supporting mi comadre Lido Pimienta at TIFF,” the songwriter captioned the post.
In the comments, fans went wild over the singer’s look and thanked her for breaking her social media hiatus.
“Most beautiful woman in the world I swear,” commented a follower.
“You being active again is literally the best thing that has happened to me in a long time,” shared someone else.
“Words cannot describe how happy it makes me as a day one supporter of you and your music, to see you post and be active again,” wrote a fan. “You’re absolutely glowing, and we’re all so beyond thirsty for your voice, message, and music to return!”
“You look stunning,” added another alongside a heart eyes emoji.
“You look absolutely flawless and your gorgeous smile is everything!” another follower chimed in.
According to TIFF, “Lido TV” is an insightful and comedic variety show that “dextrously explores themes of colonialism, beauty and feminism.”
