Mel B and an itsy bitsy bikini

Mel B celebrates her birthday in Vegas by the pool party

Mel B has been in the news recently with her hot Vegas show causing a stir and her toned figure being photographed left, right and centre she is hard to avoid reading about at the moment.  Of course not forgetting she is one of the celebrity faces of Ultimo along with Melinda Messenger and others.

Now Mel B is hitting 21 again (joke) and another day, another bikini for the toned Mel B I am sure she is thinking now if you have it flaunt it – so go girl.   No really she was celebrating her 34th birthday yesterday, in the Las Vegas’ plush Wet Republic pool.

Teaming her bikini with red stilettos and a beaming grin, the mum of two certainly didn’t look annoyed at turning another year older, well you wouldn’t looking that good would you!

With toned limbs and killer abs, she proudly displayed the curves that have earned her a pretty penny since she shed her baby weight in 2007.  Never one to mince her words, Mel has previously attributed her figure to an extremely active sex life with husband Stephen Belafonte.

Quote from Mel ‘In fact, on top of all my exercise, I have sex with him five times a day – maybe that has something to do with it. I have to admit, I’m a nymphomaniac with him. It’s sexercise,’ she said.

Originally slimming down by training for Dancing with the Stars (the U.S. version of Strictly Come Dancing), Mel B got her figure even further into shape with a new workout regime.   Snapped up by lingerie brand Ultimo, she also released her fitness DVD Totally Fit: Mel B last Christmas, before embarking on a tough training schedule for Peepshow, her burlesque Vegas show.

Now I love these two Mel’s both  are mothers, both curvy well  Melinda is Mel B  seems more toned well unbelievable toned and more muscular than ever before.  I suppose it’s the shows and the relentless rehersals you can’t help but define all those muscles can you.   Ultimo have chosen Mel B and Melinda Messenger to model their new swimwear collection as well as the bra ranges they also model, more money girlies – you go girls.

The two women put on a range of bikinis and one-pieces for a series of poolside photographs.

Mel B’s shots for Ultimo

el has been in the papers recently with her hot Las Vegas Burlesque show  wowing the groups as she struts her very toned and fit body in a sexy burlesque act, it’s perhaps no surprise to see Mel B is keeping her role as the face and body of Ultimo.  She has reported that the dancing has toned her body even more and looking at her you would never think that she only has two children one being the child of Eddie Murphy.

Over a year after she first modelled for the Scottish lingerie firm, the former Spice Girl is showing off her even more toned figure again in the new summer ads.   In contrast to the racy, lacy underwear she wears  in her Peepshow Vegas act, the 33-year-old shows her girlie side as she models pretty pastel shades.

Basically Mel B at the moment is a very busy girl indeed after wowing the crowds in Sin City, Mel B has managed to squeeze in some time to model the latest collection for Ultimo, including the best-selling Plunge Bra – which first hand I can say is fab.

Mel B said: “The photoshoot in LA was fantastic. Ultimo lingerie gives you a superb shape and is so comfortable, with sexy styles in every collection.

With Mel B being so busy at the moment d not be surprised if you see her doing something new as she is very much in demand.

The new Spring/Summer 2009 collection, as modelled by Mel B, is available from Debenhams stores nationwide and online at Ultimo’s new website www.ultimo.co.uk

Mel getting down and dirty

Mel B leaves little to the imagination in her raunchy new burlesque show

Mel B as I have written about before has been rehearsing for her new role which she seems to be enjoying and who can blame her.   Cavorting with fit bare-chested male dancers and shimmying with female co-stars the former Spice Girl Mel B last week presented her burlesque act Peepshow in Las Vegas.

And although Leeds-born Mel didn’t go topless in the show, some of her fellow dancers did. She described the performance as ‘scantily clad, but in a classy way’.

With the rise of artists such as Dita Von Teese, the famous burlesque queen  has made burlesque become a high-profile form of entertainment, even considered an art form.   How pouring pink paint onto a man tied to a bed fits in with this is open debate but the former Scary Spice clearly enjoyed her role as a saucy striptease artist.   At the show in the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino, Mel B – whose full name is Melanie Brown – donned a range of increasingly provocative outfits.

The preview performance last week was not without incident, and a fire alarm was set off during the first song.  I wonder if strapping firemen arrived in their suits!!! Oh wonderous!   Despite this, the singer was given a standing ovation at the end of the show.  Mel B wears a range of increasingly provocative outfits in the burlesque show.

Mel B stars as Peep Diva, described as ‘a bold and powerful woman with all the answers’, who acts as the mistress of ceremonies.   She guides the timid Bo Peep, played by American TV starlet Kelly Monaco, on a journey of self-discovery and sexual awakening.   Kelly’s character blossoms into a ‘sexy, daring, provocative and more confident woman’ with Mel’s expert help.

The former Spice Girl said of her new role: ‘Because I’m coming out as a solo artist next year, I feel this show is putting me back in an arena that I’m most comfortable in and love doing most, which is performing and entertaining on stage.’   Mel added: ‘This is an original show. This part is great for me.’   Kelly’s character, left, blossoms into a sexy, daring, more confident woman with Mel B’s help by the end of the night

She was joined by several scantily-clad dancers.   ‘As a Spice Girl I would bring guys on the stage and whip them, so I think I’ve always been slightly naughty.’   In comparison to former bandmate Victoria, who is carving out a name for herself in the fashion industry, Mel B has had a relatively low profile since the end of her days as Scary Spice.

‘Modelling lingerie is really empowering and it was fantastic to get in character for the shoot and strut my stuff.’   Mel B and Kelly Monaco are set to star in the show for several months. A rotation of celebrities will later headline Peepshow.

Just wearing her undies and smouldering against the velvet curtains, Mel B has replaced her alter ego Scary Spice with a new one – Peep Diva.   The former Spice Girl is set to make her debut on the Las Vegas stage later this month as Peep Diva in the burlesque Peep Show.

Although there will be topless dancers in  the show, Mel B will be keeping her curves under wraps, describing her costume as ‘scantily clad, but in a classy way.’

Mel B’s character is described as ‘a bold and powerful woman with all the answers’ who guides the timid character of Bo on a swift journey of ‘awakening and self-discovery’.

Mel said “Burlesque is all about embracing and celebrating your body. The shoot was fantastic and I felt every inch the burlesque star,” The Daily Star quoted her, as saying. “A girl’s gotta have great lingerie, but it’s also all about the wink and the tease that goes with it. Modelling lingerie is really empowering and it was fantastic to get in character. The new Ultimo collection is super-feminine, with lashings of elaborate detailing, luscious colours and sexy fabrics. I just love it!” she added.

Mel B’s previous shoots for Ultimo have raised suggestions that the shots have been airbrushed.  But the latest photos appeared entirely natural, with her curves and tattoos on display.  She wears a series of underwear sets, teamed with vintage accessories.   Michelle Mone, creator of Ultimo, said: ‘We wanted to recreate the classic bombshell look of burlesque legends like Betty Page and Gypsy Rose Lee, full of curves and glamour. Mel B did an astounding job and really got into the spirit of the shoot.   ‘The UK has a real heritage of burlesque, so we wanted to celebrate this and encourage women to find their own alter-ego.’

Beth Ditto squeezes in to a Herve Leger dress!

Beth Ditto squeezes into a  Herve Leger bandage dress

The unforgiving bandage dress designed by Herve Leger has found a natural fit among an attention-seeking celebrity clientèle.  With the likes of Lindsay Lohan , Victoria Beckham and Scary Spice to name but a few are  massive fans of the bandage dress.

But to some, the fit comes more naturally than others.

A fearless Beth Ditto, 28, squeezed herself into the tight-fitting lycra dress, testing its seams and they held so that’s bloody marvellous manufacturing and great cotton,  as she attended Stella McCartney’s Paris fashion show.

With its tightly woven bands of lycra, the bandage dress certainly offered some support to the larger than life lead singer of band Gossip.   But even for Ditto – whose love of tight clothing appears to have no boundaries – this was a look too far, as the frock failed to flatter her 15st figure. According to the Daily Mail.  However, I think it’s a  bit too short and her knees look odd!!!!   But after all I take my hat off to her you go girl – shock them and she does.

Beth, who currently writes an advice column for The Guardian newspaper, entitled ‘What Would Beth Ditto Do?, might well need some sartorial advice of her own.   Beth has been attending all the top shows in Paris, no doubt taking notes after she revealed plans last year for her own fashion line, a collaboration with high street store Evans.  ‘Oh I’m loving doing it. Its been such a fun project,’ she said.

The US born singer sat front row at the fashion show  whose guests included, Thandie Newton, Salma Hayek and Twiggy, as well as McCartney’s husband, Alisdhair Willis, and her sister, Mary.  Last to arrive was Sir Paul McCartney and his girlfriend, Nancy Shevell, the latter dressed in a cream McCartney coat and matching pom-pom knit bag.

She recently posed nude for the premiere issue of Love Magazine. It marks the second time Beth has stripped it off for a magazine, after she first appeared naked on the cover of NME in 2007.

Love editor Katie Grand said of the star who numbers Kate Moss among her high-profile fans: ‘She says the wrong things. She looks the wrong way.

‘Isn’t it confounding and amazing to have an iconic figure who doesn’t have a 25-inch waist?’.

Airbrushing Mel B

Reported this week has Mel B been airbrushed?

Mel B has managed to keep in great shape since her Spice Girls heyday, but this new promotional shot for Ultimo’s latest range seems to be taking the mickey according to some papers this week.  But is it the press just wanting to find something to say about some one that is not flattering.  They are always the first to jump, on the band wagon and say I can spot that bit of cellulite, that extra bump or lump.  We are all human and all have lumps, bumps and cellulite just some people more than most.  Anyway rant over with.

Apparently Mel appears to have lost her hips, which now seem out of proportion with the rest of her full figure.What makes the airbrushing job worse is that the mother-of-two has appeared in scores of other shoots with her more realistic figure. Is it or is it not?  With Kate Winslet always having it done at the moment ?  Who knows?

The Boudoir collection ranging from £12 for the knickers , £25 for the bra, £15 for the suspenders and £40 for the corset.

So as the papers asked is this the worse piece of air brushing ever?

Mel B looks fabulous, but not natural, in her new photo shoot for Ultimo

I think she looks fab in both personally…

The contract, which she took over from Sarah Harding, is believed to be worth as much as £500,000, however, so she may not be complaining too loudly.  Mel, aka Scary Spice, threatened to sue Loaded magazine eight years ago when they airbrushed out her bikini from a cover shoot and replaced it with a swarm of bees over her private parts.57ab_1

Today her body is looking better than ever, and she recently said she was ‘seriously considering’ a £1 million offer to pose for Playboy.  Just like Dita did recently for Playboy Germany, watch a latter entry.  But first she plans to renew her wedding vows with husband Stephen Belafonte this month in Egypt.

The couple married during a secret ceremony in Las Vegas in June 2007 but are planning to invite family and friends this time around.

Ultimo also released pictures of model Melinda Messenger in a shoot for their D to G cup range. The 36-year-old’s perfect skin and flawless appearance suggest her photos may have also been retouched according to the papers.
