And we're not talking about Spencer Pratt (*badtum-ting* I'm here all week, etc, etc), rather the strips of black tape emerging from her underarm area.

Heidi Montag, largely last seen lolling about the set of Celebrity Big Brother back in 2013, attended the We tv's The Evolution of Relationship Reality Shows event last week with a unique fashion accessory. Indeed it is something of a slow news day...

Speaking via Us Weekly, she explained it's kinesio tape: "I had minor surgery for severe tendinitis and the tape helps the muscles heal faster. I forgot my jacket and Spencer [Pratt] said it looked cool so I went for it. I felt like I had a giant tattoo for a night, it was so cool!" Not nearly as cool as your shoes, has to be said.

For those looking to replicate Heidi's alternative to a barcode tat, or maybe you just felt like adding gaffer tape sleeves to a vest on a particularly chilly night,  we strongly advise steering clear of potential alternatives to kinesio tape - like duct / electrical tape. It's very tricky to get off, particularly for the more hirsute of us.
