In 1997, after the release of their debut single Wannabe, popular British girl group, The Spice Girls became officially recognized for not just their music but their iconic style. Even as a group, each of the girls had a distinct style, and Mel B––who’s now popular for being a long time judge on America’s Got Talent – AGT––was known as Scary Spice. Mel B AGT

Last week, Mel B turned 45 and in celebration of her 26 years in entertainment, we’re taking a look back at her career and style transformation over the years.

Who is Mel B?

Born May 29, 1975, Melanie Janine Brown is a Kittitian-English singer, songwriter, rapper, television personality, actress, and author. Her father is from the Caribbean island nation of Saint Kitts and Nevis, while her mother is British.

As a Spice Girl, she earned the name of Scary Spice because of her “in-your-face” attitude, “loud” Leeds accent, throaty laugh, pierced tongue, bold manner of dressing––which often consisted of leopard-print outfits, and her signature voluminously curly Afro hair.

Mel B, the Author

After ten years of marriage, Mel B finalized her divorce from Stephen Belafonte in 2017, and by 2018, she released her book titled Brutally Honest. The memoir Brutally Honest is an exposé of the struggles and acute pain that lay behind the glamour and success. In this book, Mel B gave a deeply personal insight, remarkable frankness, and humor, while removing the mask of fame and revealing the mother, wife, and daughter behind the Spice Girl everyone thinks they know.

Mel B in recent years

The Spice Girls may no longer be together but Mel B never ditched her love for entertainment. She spent six years as a judge on AGT and five years on the Australian and British version of The X-Factor.

Quick fact: Mel B is set to feature in a 2021 animated film, Blazing Samurai, starring Samuel L. Jackson, Ricky Gervais and Michelle Yeoh.

Even with her busy schedule, Mel B manages to turn out in simple yet chic looks every time she steps out and is captured in photos. When it comes to her style, there is no denying the fact that Mel B has been transformed from the skimpily dressed, sexy Scary Spice to a more alluring and elegant lady over the years.

Looking at her most stylish AGT and X-Factor moments in the past six years and her red carpet looks in recent years, her style evolution is quite obvious. This change happened thanks in part to Jason Bolde, her friend and stylist.

A lover of boots and strappy sandals, Mel B’s love for figure hugging outfits has literally remained spicy over the years and so has her love for big curly hair.
