Mel C: I'm a well-dressed mother

Mel C feels "more feminine" since becoming a mother.

The former Spice Girl was nicknamed Sporty Spice in the popular British girl band - and was rarely seen not wearing a tracksuit or sweat pants and a crop top.

A few years on, and now a mother to daughter Scarlet, Mel is embracing her new found womanliness.

"I've always dressed how I feel comfortable in that moment of my life. Now I'm older and I'm a mum, I do feel more feminine. It's fun to enjoy fashion and wear lots of different clothes but I'd never design them," she told the UK issue of OK! magazine.

"Victoria [Beckham - former bandmate] always had a passion with fashion, that's totally her thing. My passion is music, so that's where I tend to put all my energy."

Mel supports Victoria's high-profile fashion ventures, and thinks her clothes are wonderful.

The 38-year-old star says Victoria has a flair for designing chic and elegant clothes that make you feel special.

"Well she's lent me two beautiful gowns and I felt very sophisticated in her clothes," she laughed when asked if she gets a discount on Victoria's pieces.

"I'm lucky to have a friend who's such a great designer."
