Happy Tuesday!
For this week’s Style File, I decided to profile the scintillating chanteuse…

Melanie B

… Scary Spice!
She’s been hot on gossip blogs lately for everything from Dancing with the Stars to her Spice Girls Reunion Tour.
Her style factor has evolved exponentially since her former days….
…of bra tops and shiny suits. Let’s take a look:
For red carpets, Scary absolutely favors black frocks…
…in skin tight fabrics and body hugging silhouettes.
From time to time, she shines in satin dresses in pale colors like pink or gray…
And on occasion she might offer a bit of punch…
..in a sleek silver sequined number.
For more casual events, she gravitates towards separates…
…but make no mistake, the silhouette is the same: low cut, bust clinging top, and hip hugging pencil skirt with stilettos.
I can’t hate, this look really works for her.
