Too much time on Sunset Boulevard! Tulisa shows off her painfully burnt skin after a day in the harmful Hollywood rays


By Alanah Eriksen

She's been wearing next to nothing as she enjoys the sun in Los Angeles.

But it looks as though Tulisa Contostavlos has forgotten to put sunblock on during her Hollywood fashion parade.

The X Factor judge showed off her extremely burnt skin as she left the Boa Steakhouse with friends last night.

Ouch! X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos looked extremely sunburnt as she left the Boa Steakhouse last night after a day on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles

The 23-year-old's face was scarlet and she sported an unnatural red patch on her right arm.

She was earlier spotted lapping up the harmful rays while out for a stroll on Sunset Boulevard - a far cry from London's snowy weather.

And although she wore massive sunglasses, she did not protect her face with a hat.
The singer went for ladylike chic in a pretty black and white checked cap-sleeved minidress with a pair of peep-toe wedges.

She teamed the Houndstooth Skater Dress, from, with a thin black belt to highlight her tiny waist and a matching bag.

Tulisa had been doing so well during her first major trip stateside, sporting an array of stylish outfits.

She also partied with The Wanted on Saturday night, as they took time off from their busy U.S. tour.

Her PA Gareth Varey - who has been at the singer's side throughout the trip tweeted: 'Great night with @thewantedmusic and @officialtulisa...The walking dead have arisen. Good morning LA... Erm I think I'm still drunk?!'

The night before she showed off her washboard stomach in a cropped jumper and high-waisted jeans, both from Lipsy, as she headed out bowling with friends.

She looked in high spirits as she enjoyed the game, giggling and laughing as she attempted to choose which weight ball to bowl with.

Tulisa paired her striped jumper, emblazoned with the words 'Oui, Oui, Oui!', with the tight denims which clung to her curves, and her favourite pair of heeled plimsolls.

The outfit is relatively casual compared to some of the ensembles she has been sporting recently while working on her debut solo album.

Where it all started: Earlier, Tulisa was spotted strolling on Sunset Boulevard not wearing a hat to cover her face from the harmful rays

Yesterday, she sported a very tight patterned Lipsy minidress, teamed with a sky-high pair of silver sparkly heels.

When she arrived at LAX earlier this week, Tulisa soon changed her checked shirt and skinny jeans for a pair of tiny denim shorts and a jumper with birds on it.

The singer then wore a bright red playsuit, followed by a different patterned minidress.

She has been working hard on her debut album and it was yesterday revealed the record is being masterminded by Def Jam executive Max Rousse, who helped launch Rihanna's career.

He has also worked with the Black Eyed Peas, Cheryl Cole and Kelis in recent years. Tulisa is hoping the album will be released in May.

A source told the Sunday Mirror: 'Jean is behind some of the biggest hits of the past decade. Tulisa worked with him a couple of years ago when she was in LA working on N-Dubz's third album. They hit it off immediately and have kept in touch ever since.'

Earlier this week, Tulisa confirmed she will be releasing a solo single in the next few months.

With her group N-Dubz on hiatus and her recent split from Fazer, it's the perfect time for Tulisa.

She told London radio station Capital FM: 'I've got my single ready now to release. I'm going to be shooting a video soon. Haven't got a set date but I'd say within the next two months definitely.'

And despite singing urban songs with her N-Dubz band-mates Fazer and Dappy, Tulisa's solo sound will be a little different.

She explained: 'It's very me but maybe not what people would expect genre-wise. It's one of those tracks that you don't get bored of.'

Aside from her solo work, Tulisa is rumoured to be duetting with her 'little muffins' Little Mix on a track for their debut album.
